I am trying to fatten up the little princess lol. What are some good fatty foods for her. She loves avacado and sweet potatoes but will eat anything that doesn't eat her. Also I am not sure she knows when she is full. So about how much solids should I give her. Tonight she ate an ounce of avacado and an ounce of sweet potato (babyfood) and is now nursing like she hasn't ate today. I know the food isn't nessisarry but she wants it and it's a way to get more calories in her between nursing.

Nurse first then give the foods.
I would do crock pot beef, eggs, avacdado, homemade sweet potatoe fries.

I gave my DD a desert of yogurt (full fat) and peanut butter. The peanut butter was homemade and chunky and she loved it. It is a high calorie desert and better than the fruit jars. (I did an allergy test before I gave her the peanut butter...).

Don't wait so long because that can push off the next nursing and mean less BM taken in..think nurse, put in high chair feed her solids then nurse again to wash it down

Quoting iSMILEheCRIES: I nurse, wait an hour and feed her and then nurse soon after. Basically she is only eating solids when she normally would not be eating. She nurses about every 2 hours between 7am and 10pm and gets 2 meals a day. No restrictions at all. So she can have egg and dairy? She loves avacado so that's a plus
Quoting gdiamante:

You've actually hit on the main food; avocado. Make sure you're nursing first because there's more fat there than in anything else you give her. 

Are there any dietary restrictions or precautions that go with her illness?

How old? I feed my dd until she wants to stop and then she nurses about 30min later. She doesn't eat a ton, but she's 16mo
