How much should 8-month old baby eat?

My little girl eats 4x a day (veggies, fruits, formula, little juice) and she's doing good and gaining nicely but my MIL thinks she should eat more.... So now I'm kinda second-guessing myself if I give her enough food although she doesn't seem to be hungry...

  • i would say she is fine! if she is hungry she will let u know! my dd had 4 6oz bottles at night and 2 jars of baby food during the day and a 4 oz bottle and some puffs for a snack! so u should be fine! if she is gaining weight i wouldnt be worried!

  • She will be fine. Like was said earlier she will let you know if she wants more. Do not overfeed her with sweets and empty calories.
