I have a 9 month old who was born prematurely. He was 33 inches long, 17lbs at his checkup, and the doctor said at his 9 month check up he was on the low end of weight, but the high end for his length. His dad and I both are under 5'7, so it's weird he is so long already. Anyways, he wants to eat 24/7. For example, yesterday he ate 5 jars of baby food, a cup of yogurt, a finely diced up baked plain chicken breast, 4 teething cookies, and some vermicilli rice with cheese. He also had 4 bottles of milk, and a bottle of apple juice. He get so angry when I make him stop eating. The doctor said his diet is fine, and he can have as much table food as I can give him, but he eats more than his 2 yr old brother, and his 5 yr old sister! Why is he eating this much? His health is very healthy too, so there are no stomach problems with him.
