I feel like I'm over feeding my 15 month old. Lately she's been eating a lot and putting on a belly she is weighing about 24lbs and drinks an 6-8oz bottle in the mOrning, her meals very but today she had 1 waffle and some pears for breakfast, some veggie chips for snack with juice, lunch was a grilled cheese with grapes and juice, the she has a bottle of milk at nap time, then for dinner she had a whole veggie Berger with some fruit and veggies, then she has a bottle around bed time. How much are your kids eating??

eating non-stop... but it goes in cycles. He'll eat like a horse for a few weeks, and then eat almost nothing for a few weeks.

Because they don't eat a lot at once, they tend to eat regular My son has a bottle in the morning, chips n juice as a snack at 10 then lunch is a heavy meal,a snack again. Then a bottle when he gets home two bottles during the night

There is one good way to know when your kids has enough, she will let you know. She will either turn her head, push the utensile away. Try to teach her a key word for when meal time os over, or when she if full. "Down" is she is in a high chair, or simply "all done" works with my little one. It doesn't sound as if you are feeding her too much. All kids seem get a little belly before there growth spurt. Just as long as you are feeding your child healthy foods and know that they are well cared for, don't worrie yourself about a little belly,

I can't seem to find anything my 15 month old likes besides yogurt...I would give anything to have a kid that eats like yours!

My son eats more some days than others, but about as much as your daughter does, it sounds like. He's almost the same weight too. If you're worried about her getting too many calories, I'd stop feeding her juice: it doesn't have any nutritional value, it's basically just sugar water. Even if it's good stuff that's fresh squeezed, a piece of fruit still has more vitamins & fibre.

My son is 14mo, he normally has 1 weetbix or 1 peice of toast for breakfast then 150ml milk, lunch is either mashed veg or half a cheese sandwich and a tub of yoghurt, then around 2pm another 150ml milk. For dinner it's either been spaghetti bolognaise, sheppherds pie or pretty much whatever I eat, then he will have a plain biscuit and another bottle of milk for bed.
