My little baby eats like constantly in a day he will eat 5 8oz bottles of formula, 5 4oz jars of baby food, he eats almost all fruits and vegies, and about 2 cups in total of rice cereal. He's eating fine its just that he isnt gaining weight. Does anyone have any tips that can help me out I'm starting to get scared?!?!?!?!

If he's eating healthy (and I agree about adding table food, my youngest dd was off baby food by 9 months and eating whatever we were for lunch and dinner) and isn't losing weight I wouldn't worry. Some kids are just meant to be small/skinny.
My oldest daughter stopped really gaining weight after 7 months. She still gained just at a much lower weight which continued until now. She was only 18lbs at 1, 20lbs at 2, 32lbs at 5, 40lbs at 7 1/2. She's 10 now and just hit 50lbs (she was so excited). I refused to try and "fatten" her up like people said by drenching all her food in butter and having her eat other high fat/calorie food. She's just meant to be skinny.
