am I feeding too much food?? Please help very concerned
My LO keeps having hardly any milk, for example today he woke at 6 and bf and then slept until 8.30 he then had nothing- no food or milk until 12.30 when I gave him his lunch- a 1/4 of a slice of bread, 1/4 pear and a baby yoghurt. This afternoon he has had approx 3 oz of milk. and its now 4 o clock so he is having a nap.
I am wonderiing whether I am feeding him too much, so that he is not hungry for milk. Typically he would then have his dinner at 5.30
I would normally expect him to have 6oz bottle at 10, 1 and 4 in addition to his lunch and tea. The other day I thought maybe I was feeding him too much so didn't give him any food only milk and he only had 4 oz between 6am and 4 pm.
He's 6 months and has been weaning for about 3 weeks, I'm so concerned he is starving himself!! I could understand if he didn't want his afternoon bottle but to have none at all just baffles me
My LO goes through spells of eating loads and then days of not. I think as long as it balances out. I wouldn't say he is eating a lot for his age. Does he have 3 meals a day, maybe knock it back to just 2 until he's 7 or 8 months old.
