Does anyone else's 6 month old, not eat a whole lot? And is satisfied?

My baby is 6 months old, and only eats about 16 oz. of formula a day, in addition to her baby food. Is this ok?

  • Yeah its OK. So long as she is full and isn't losing weight. All baby's are different. My son is and eater. He snacks through out the entire day and still eats 3 meals a day. My 3 week old eats almost 4 oz of formula or breast milk every time he eats. Sometimes they don't eat a lot and other days that seems to be the only thing they do.

  • Yeah, my daughter eats oats 3 times a day... and has 3 - 4, 4oz bottles a day. If you mix the oats with formula or breastmilk then she is getting another few oz.
