  • I breast feed on demand and gave my daughter pureed fruit twice a day. I never gave her cereal because she didn't like it at all.

  • my son (who will be four months next week) eats 6oz of formula every 3-5 hours, depending on nap times/if he sleeps through the night. i won't start food or cereal until the pediatrician recommends it to us. he is fourteen pounds too, which i looked at height/weight/age charts online the other day, and that's perfectly average. i dont think you have anything to worry about :)
