My granddaughter will be 6 months old next week and we began her on 2nd Stage foods this week. She lives with me and I want to feed her the correct amounts per day.
She's been eating a bit of baby cereal each day and on the box it says she should eat 2 1/2 containers of the 2nd Stage foods, but those containers are big and I don't think her stomach is big enough yet to hold it all down.
How much food did your new eater eat and how often? What would you recommend?
I told my daughter to ask the pediatrician but she says that what the box says is what she wants to do. I gave my granddaughter 1/2 a container of veggie last night and she couldn't finish her little bit of cereal so I stopped feeding her. My daughter told me to force her to eat so her stomach stretches and gets used to what it is supposed to eat, but that seems wrong to me!
Have feeding rules changed so much in the past 20 years?
