my daughter has been on soy milk for a while now sence we discovered her intolerance to milk. However she's been eating food sence we swtiched her to formula at around 1 month..i never had a problem with it becuase she was still getting the same amount of formula. what has become of this gradual food introduction is that by 7 months she drinks 4 6-8 oz bottles in a day plus a can of fruit and plabum for breakfast, a can of veggies for lunch and a can of meat and veggies for dinner......my daughter also has a cookie for a snack and she can eat the gerber graduate puffs (even though it says not to give it to them until 1 year) we watched her for choking issues but she can pick them up with one hand, open her hand, pick up the puff with two fingers, then put it in her mouth. my daughter has been very advanced with every moter skill and i've never had a issue until now....................when i read about ppl "introducting food" and olny giving a tbsp or so at this age i laugh becuase if you were to put a tbsp in front of my daughter she scream until she got what she's used to.......i have no problems with naps and night time becuase her routene is very strick....nap for 2 hrs at noon and in bed by 8pm (she wakes up around 8-9 the next morning)....i'm trying to follow my husband and mother-in-laws advice...but what do you think
am i over feeding my daughter?????....................................
