DS was exclusively BF until 6 months. We introduced real foods first (avacado, banana) and he didn't want either. AT ALL. Mixed in some baby oatmeal and water and he... eeh... kinda warmed up to it a little. Anyway, he's almost 8 months now. The pedi said she wants him on two meals a day at this point. I serve him jar food at lunch and dinner time (or grinded up table food, whichever is available... I try to go with table food because he likes it better). Thing is, he only eats about half a jar at each sitting. Doesn't seem like much for an 8 month old.
I recently started buying him snack foods like Gerber cheese puffs and ginger root cookies. He doesn't really like those. He does like foods he probably shouldn't eat though... toast, yogurt (he had an allergic reaction to this... pouring runny nose and sneezes like crazy... it was plain organic Stonyfield, not YoBaby, and only a bite or two of mine).
Okay, back to the point. Is he eating enough? It doesn't seem like much for a 21 lb 8 month old. He's still nursing plenty and goes through plenty of diapers, so no worries there.
Also, when do you introduce a sippy cup? And with what in it? Breastmilk? Or a little watered down apple juice? My MIL tried to tell me he was thirsty because he kept reaching for her wine glass at Thanksgiving. Mmkay sure lady.
And just because I need to say it somewhere... I'm so over people saying, "So are you ever going to give him any formula?" *eyeroll*
