I have a 6.5 month old daughter would is eating stage 1 baby foods and still nursing. I still don't know how much she should be eating and nursing! It's hard to tell how much breastmilk she's getting but when I pump to go to work, I'll thaw out about 15 ounces of milk for her. She usually drinks it all throughout the day and sometimes leaves an ounce or two left over. (Keep in mind that I nurse her twice before I go to work). She's been eating baby food twice a day--at lunch then dinner. That routine usually goes like this: for lunch, she'll eating about 3 tablespoons of rice or oatmeal cereal and a half jar of stage 1 baby food. She poops about every 2 or three days and she had normal wet diapers. She's not skinny either--her 6 month well visit revealed she was 16 lbs and 11 oz and 26 1/2 inches long. Is her regimen adequate or do I need to encourage more food? She eats to hunger, I guess I'm just paranoid. Any input would be great.
