I started feeding my little darling solid foods around 11.5 months, with the occasional baby food meal. When I went to the doctors to see how everything was, she had only gained 100 grams in 3 months. I really dont understand why, since she has a very good appetite and seems to be eating all the time. I have gone back to baby food (made all from scratch).. They usually consist of meat (red or chicken) or fish, plus a carb (potatoes, rice, pasta or beans) and veggies- I also add butter and cheese or olive oil.
So her daily menu looks like this :
Wake up: 1.5 cups of milk with oatmeal
Mid-morning snack: half a bananna, half an apple, gram cracker and some milk
lunch: meat+carb+veg (pureed)
dinner: fish+carb+veg (pureed)
before bed: 1.5 cups of milk with mashed cookies or cereal
throughout the day she drinks water with a little bit of juice
I would just like to add that we move a lot and routines sometimes get shifted PLUS Haley started walking at 12 months and does not stop all day- She also poops 2-3 times a day.
Im very worried, since she is alert, healthy, active, happy and sleeps very very well..I dont understand what could be the problem.
Thanks for the imput!
