My DD is 8 month old today and is small (27 in and 17.6 lbs) on a normal day she only drinks 20 oz of formula and eats 2 tbsp of Cream of Wheat with 1 oz of stage 2 fruit, for lunch and dinner she has 1/2 a jar of fruit and 1/2 jar of veggies for a total of 2 jars of food. I am wanting to increase her formula but after reading everything I could I am confused as to just how much she needs. Her Ped said that 20 oz is fine but I am starting to think it is just not enough for such a small girl.
She is VERY interested in table foods but she wants everything and it seems like she never gets enough. 3 or 4 bites is never enough for her. She seems to not have a shut off point when it comes to food. I know that she still needs formula to grow but I am wondering if I should take her off of solids or reduce them to a much smaller amount and focus on formula.
How much formula should she have and how do I go about reducing her solids?
