Is it normal for my 9 month old to eat her baby food, drink her formula and eat what I'm having? In between meals she will scream if anyone goes into the kitchen, even if she just ate! She's not a big baby, she is actually really petite but eats all day. I'm scared something is wrong with her please help.

Went to the doctor and the doctor seems to think there is nothing wrong with what she is doing and she is 17 lbs and 29 1/2 inches long so I think I am going to cut back on baby food and give her more table food

If you think something is wrong, you should get her checked out by a doctor (parasites?), but my son was very food-oriented, too. It was no problem, though it was amazing how much he could eat. At 2 years old he ate as much as me at some meals! But they are growing so fast, they get very hungry.

At some point you just say, "That's enough for now. I'll feed you more soon if you're still hungry." Now that he's 3 we ask if his belly wants more or if it is saying "enough" just to try to get him to think about his body's signals. Also once she's a little older you can test if she's still hungry or just likes the taste by giving her something like a bite of peas when what she wants is applesauce. If she gobbles the peas, probably she's still hungry. If she turns up her nose, that means she's all done.

Some people do have something wrong with them where the 'signal' to tell them that they are full is 'broken'. Typically speaking though.... she's probably perfectly fine and just loves food.
