My little boy is almost 7 months now (on the 29th) and we started his weaning at around 5 months, but he seems to eat sooo much solids I'm worried I am over feeding him? Although he would eat more if I let him! Also he doesn't seem to want much milk anymore, I really have to perservere to get him to drink any!This is his food/milk intake for the day, is it too much?:
7/8am - Wake; 5oz bottle and breakfast, usually 2/3tbls of porridge with one jar fruit.
12 - 4oz bottle
1230 - Lunch which is usually half jar of baby food (meat/veg) and one jar of fruit for dessert.
4 - 4oz bottle
630 - Dinner which is usually half jar - whole jar of baby food (meat/veg) and one jar of fruit for dessert.
730 - 5oz bottle and bed.
He still has a bottle during the night too; he is a nightmare when it comes to sleep I'm really at a loss as how to get him to sleep through the night. And his naps during the day were terrible too alrhough today he has taken an hour in the morning and two & a half this afternoon - which is a MIRACLE (he used to only take 45 min cat naps a few times a day and was always grumpy, and would also NEVER settle himself, he had to be rocked) Today he put himself to sleep both times. :))))) put him in his cot and didnt hear a peep from him :)
He was also really tiny when born (4lb 5oz) though he is now a chunky 14lb bless him.
