My son is 6 1/2 months old and he eats A LOT. When we went to the doctor at 4 months he gave us the ok to start solids. He has loved everything he has tried so far and adapted well to solids. We started with small amounts at first but he kept opening up for more. Here is what we are doing... He nurses between 5-6 times a day and always before we offer him solids.
Breakfast - 4 tablespoons rice cereal, mixed with formula
Lunch - 1 tub of Gerber first foods fruit (prunes, pears, bananas)
Dinner - 1 tub of veggies and 4-5 tablespoons of rice cereal
We haven't been back to the doctor yet, but it seems like a lot of food for a little tummy. He eats up all his food and sometimes I have to nurse him again right before bed. He is right on track for weight and very tall for his age. He is by no means overweight. I know that there isn't really a right answer to the feeding game, but is this too much for a 6 month old? What did you feed your baby at 6 months?
