Amount of food at about 8 months


Ethan wakes up in the night (A LOT lol) for bottles. I'm wondering if he is eating as much as other babies, as his intake of food doesnt seem like a lot.He is quite a chunky omnkey, but doesnt seem to eat a lot of food, unless I'm expecting too much. He is probably filling up during the night on milk, therefore eating less .

He has on a typical day:

6am 7oz bottle
8am ready brek with fruit puree in (about 100g roughly I guess, probably less)
12pm 1/2 a stage 2 jar or 100g home made mush! (give finger food after but all gets squished). same amount of dessert e.g. yoghurt or fruit.
2.30pm 7oz bottle
5.30pm same as lunch
7pm 7oz bottle
10pm 7oz bottle
2am 7oz bottle zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hi,

His amounts of solids sounds pretty similar to my DD, however we vary it up with brekkie so sometimes give toast too which fills her up However I notice that you have a long gap between morning bottle and the afternoon. With my DD we do this (normally)

7am wake up and bottle (6-7oz)
8.30am brekkie
11am bottle (6oz)
1pm ish lunch
3pm bottle (6oz)
5-5.30pm tea
6.45pm bottle (7oz)
She will now wake in the night between 1-5am (norm about 3am) but we are offering a watered down bottle eg. 3 scoops to 7oz and she will generally only take half.

Im wondering if your LO is not getting enough milk in the day and is therefore making up at night? Maybe try doing a watered down bottle (was suggested by HV) as my DD always drinks her morn bottle if she has the watered down but not if she has a full bottle if you know what i mean.
Hope that helps some

Thanks, I have stopped giving that bottle as he wasnt taking it at all, but might try again as that was a while ago.
