How many bottles? How many solid meals?
My big 9kg 8 month old has cut back her food. Im not overly concerned as she is not going to fade away or anything. She has about 2-3 bottles a day and 2 solid "meals".
She wont eat any solids for breakfast and has one 240ml (8oz) bottle on waking in the morning.
She sometimes but very rarely has another bottle at her sleep at 11am then a jar of custard when she wakes around 1pm.
She then has some vegies at about 5pm and a bottle before bed at 6.30-7pm.
Is this the norm? She doesnt seem to have as many wet nappies as before but wont drink anything else. She is also a VERY active baby so would be burning a lot of energy.
I saw a child health nurse and she wasnt concerned and pussed for me to drop the morning bottle and offer solids instead. Im not sure I want to do that as it will cut her back to around 1 bottle a day which I dont think is enough fluids when she wont drink water or juice through the day.
