  • My daughter is the same way and she's happy and healthy. I think it's fine as long as he doesnt lose weight.

  • Yes, as long as he is getting an average of 20 oz per day! He sounds like my little eater!

  • Sounds perfect... looks like he's getting 20-30 oz of milk/day which is fine. I would make sure he gets at least the 20 oz each day

  • Yes this is fine, my pediatrician told me she should at least be eating 3 times a day, breakfast - lunch and dinner and snacks if you want and at least 24oz of milk/formula.

  • Yes, they are supposed to eat around every 4 hours, and two of those times should include cereal and or baby food.
