My son has been screaming when I sit him in his Highchair in the mornings ready for his breakfast, it's like I can't do it quick enough so I increased his food all day to see if it made a difference but one day it did and the next it didn't. He has 2oz milk in porridge in the mornings at 7 30 and eats about 20 baby spoonfuls, he then has a 6oz bottle at 8 30. Lunch is at 11 30 which is about 10 spoonfuls of food followed by a small yoghurt and sometimes a biscuit. At 2pm he has a 7oz bottle then food again at 4 30 which is the same amount as his lunch and bedtime is at 7pm with an 8oz bottle. I have been doing this for about 3 days as before that he didn't eat as much but was waking at night but since this routine he has slept at night but still seems like he would eat more. He weighs just over 8kg so is an ideal weight. Is what he eating enough or should I increase the amount of food at lunch and tea time?.
