Does my 10 month old eat enough (PIOG)?

In the morning.. i feed her half a tub of fruit & a bottle a milk. hours later another bottle. lunchtime- veggies&milk. hours later a bottle of milk... then dinner chicken&veggies&milk. and sometimes in between meals some water that i leave around for her (which she loves) and maybe a biter biscuit or a yogurt puff thingy from Gerber's. i'm not really sure how much is enough... or if she's eating enough. if i give her a full tub (2ndstage gerber) of baby food, she'll only finish half her milk... if i give her half a tub, she finishes most/all of her milk. she seems to eat better when i give her a bottle first. but my mom says she needs to learn to eat first now. *grr* her pedi also told me to space out her feedings because i was originally feeding her milk every 2 hours. so now it's like 3-4 hours. and she still wakes up 1 or 2 times for a bottle at night...
sorry it's so long.. but does this all sound right? she's very active

  • that sounds great to me. my DD (9 mo) eats a little less than that. i would think that she would let you know if she needed more food. my pedi just told me 3 meals, 24 oz of BM/formula or less, & 2 snacks everyday. seems you follow that.
