My daughter just turned 5 months last week. She was breast feed until about 8 weeks ago when she slowly started loosing interest. So we made the transition to formula. She now eats 6-7 ounces every 2 hours during the day and wakes up atleast once through out the night. It adds up to about 48 ounces a day. Maybe a little more depending on the day. She has been eating this much for a while now. I talked to her pediatrician a few weeks ago on the phone and he said that is more than the normal amount of formula for a baby her age to be eating. But he wanted to wait on the cereal for a while. Now Sophia is not satified with the amount she is eating again. So i started cereal about a week ago. She is just now getting the hang of it and seems to love it. Is it wrong to go against what her doctor says. I just went with my mother instinct! Has anyone else had this problem. When should i add in actual jar baby food?
