I have a little one who will by 10 months tomorrow. She is a BIG girl. She weighs more than my 2 1/2 year old! lol She is ALWAYS hungary, and I mean ALWAYS. She LOVES baby food and table food and always has to have something in her mouth. I am afraid though that she may be over eating. In ONE sitting, she eats about 20 ounces of baby food(I also mix about 10 oz of baby cereal in it too cuz she hates anything runny) and after that, she drinks a 9 oz bottle that is close to mashed potatoes(again I use cereal cuz she is always hungary and she doesn't like runny formula) On any given day she can eat 60-70 ounces of babyfood(don't forget all that cereal as well) and she eats about 5 bottles a day.. Does anyone think that is a little over the top? If so, anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to slow down? I have tried to lower her portion sizes on the bottle and food but she screams and screams and throws huge temper tantrums so I give in cuz I feel like I starve her :( PLEASE HELP!!!
