I have a 8 month old son who up until last month was full breast fed. He has always been a great eater. At 4 months I had to start him on rice cereal before bed time to help fill him up because he acted as though breast milk just wasn't filling him. At 6 months I started to introduce baby food which he is now up to eating 6 Gerber tubs of baby food a day plus a cup of cereal for breakfast. On top of all that food I'm going through a can of formula every two to three days and that's at home. He does go to daycare 9 hours a day Monday thru Friday, weird thing is at daycare he eats normal amounts of food and only drinks one 4 oz bottle a day. At home he wont drink any less then a 8 oz bottle at a time. At night time before bed he usually drink 16 oz. I give 2, 8 oz bottles always after the first when he still wants more i make him pplay for at least 30 mins to make sure he really still hungry and every night after 30 min he wants another 8 oz bottle. He also still gets up every 3 hours during the night to drink an 8 oz bottle. Not sure what I can do, I feel like he is just eating so much, this doesn't even include the fact that he gets small amounts of table food with his meals and baby snacks through out the day when he acts hungry. By no means is he a chubby baby he weighs 22 pounds and is very long. Is this healthy how much he is eating? I don't believe its a growth spurt because he has always been a big eater. How can I try to get him to not eat so much?
