how do you know how much food to give lo when you start weaning?
Usually the guidelines will be on the side of the packet if you are starting with baby rice, powdered porridge etc.... I was told that a babies stomach is the size of her palm, I try an dremember this when I am measuring out food.
When I began weaning, I aired on the side of caution and probably underfed rather than over fed. I was happy with this though as I didn't want Lucy to drink any less milk then she was before... this way it took a while to drop any milk bottles...
good luck xx
