What is everyone's baby eating, and how much? My son usually goes through about three jars of baby food (2nd foods) a day. He also eats some adult food and probably 3-4 bottles in there as well. I just wanted to see if he's eating as much as other 8-9 month old babies are.

My daughter has a 6oz bottle and 3 -4 tbsp of cereal (rice, barley, oatmeal or wheat) for breakfast and a snack at about 10am, usually yogurt or fruit (about 4 - 5 tbsp). Lunch is 4-5 tbsp of veggie/protein and 4-5 tbsp of fruit followed by another 4 - 6 oz bottle. Dinner is 3 tbsp of cereal, 3 - 4 tbsp of veggie/protein and 3 - 4 tbsp of fruit. She has another 6 oz bottle before bed. On the odd night she will wake up for another 4 to 6 oz bottle, but is beginning to phase that out...thankfully! :)

My daughter is still breastfed, but I think is beginning to ween. She eats 3 meals a day. She just eats whatever we are eating. She has tolerated all foods. She only has her 2 bottom teeth, but is excellent at chewing. She has begun refusing baby food and now is beginning to insist on feeding herself. What a mess!

My daughter eats 2-3 jars of 2nd foods mixed with some baby oatmeal and about 4-5 six ounce bottles of formula a day. She doesn't eat anything in the middle of the night.

Well my daughter doesn't eat jar food anymore, but she eats 3 meals a day + 1 or 2 snacks. Breakfast is usually oatmeal and a YoBaby yogurt w/ water or juice. Lunch is usually some sort of pasta, cooked veggie, grilled cheese, pancakes, sausage, or scrambled eggs. Dinner is usually whatever we are having or if she doesn't like it, she gets something like what I listed for lunch. Snacks are usually puffs, maple biscuits, yogurt melts, mum mums, some cut up fruit, or those Gerber Cheesy puffs (the ones that look like cheetohs)

Or little darling is still breastfeeding. He's having 3 meals a day. Porridge for breakfast and eats/sucks on some fruit while we eat ours. Homemade blended veg potatoes and meat for dinner, he eats about 100g of dinner most days. Supper varies...he's had ricecakes, yoghurt, some more dinner if he's not had much, boiled egg (yolk well done only), left over veg as fingerfood. we try to feed him organic when possible. He's very interested in food and nurses a lot at the moment...I'm thinking growth spurt? He's close to the 95th percentil in height and weight so I suppose he's growing well and we must be getting thing reasonibly right.

He hates banannas! Makes faces when given bananna as fingerfood or in yogurt. It's very funny to watch.

my daughter just doesn't seem too interested in food. She's still mainly breastfed with about 1/3 of a jar of fruits for breakfast and 1/3 jar veggies for dinner. We are trying hard to get her too eat more solid foods but she doesn't seem to like them.

My 8 month old eats 4T Cereal mixed with 4T breastmilk in the morning, 1 1/2 jars of 2nd foods for lunch, then 4T Cereal mixed with 2T fruits (and 4T breastmilk) in the evening. She only drinks about 3 6 ounce bottles in the daytime, though. She wakes about 3 times at night to breastfeed....she's a hungry baby!!
