Got a question about a baby

So I starting watching these to little ones today. One is 21 months old and is fine.. The other is 8 months old. Mom packed the food and such for the baby, but I am concerned with whether she actually packed enough. Or more that if this amount is what he gets every day then is that enough? She packed 4 pre-made bottle, NO formula, and two jars of the stage 2 baby food, and a tiny ziplock bag of those puff things. Is that enough for an 8 month old? I have kids myself but it has been awhile since they were babies and I don't remember how much they ate.

I think it is enough.  As far as the no formula, maybe she forgot?  But if the bottles are premade, then you should be fine.

I'm guessing you have them for 9hrs? if so then yes that should be more than enough food.

How many ounces in each bottle?  How long you watching baby?  That sounds like plenty- are you concerned about her mothering skills?  Unless the mom is negligent I would think she knows how much her baby eats.

That sounds about right... did you ask for a feeding schedule?  I know at 8 mos my dd did not drink bottles very often (maybe every 5 hours) but she ate her meals (breakfast lunch and dinner) all with a sippy cup of formula or watered down juice.
