My son is almost 9 months old. Around 8 months, we had worked up to two "meals" a day. He was enjoying it fine, though in tiny amounts of course. It was fun cooking him different foods.
Well, then I didn't feel well for a few days so I took a break (baby-led weaning is messy); then he was extremely fussy (teeth, crawling, Wonder Weeks, the whole works) and didn't seem to want much solids; then I had a blocked duct so I stopped solids and just nursed and nursed to clear it; then he didn't poop for a while so I was worried about constipation... anyway, to make an already long story short, I'm back to offering once every 2-3 days again.
(To be honest, I'm exhausted from keeping up with him crawling everywhere, trying to get into everything, throwing tantrums, etc. He's a totally different baby! Like, really starting to become a toddler.)
I'm not too worried about the solids, but just wondering how much your babies were eating around this age.
P.S. I am a little worried about iron.
