Reading all of these people on here that are feeding their 11 months old things like toast and soup and salad and sandwhiches and whatever they are eating has me worried that I may not be feeding my little guy enough... He'll be 11 months old in just a few days and I dont feed him meat unless it's pureed... and other stuff well... here is his schedule
630AM: 7oz of formula
1030: 7oz formula, possibly a yogurt or banana but not always,
2:30: 7oz formula, yogurt or small jar of baby food (I use those bowls of 8 month old entrees they make but he only eats half of it most of the time)
6:30: baby entree and bottle that he never drinks
8:30-9:30: bottle before bed.
He rarely finishes the bottles. he'll eat maybe 5 oz out of them but any time he has a bottle and food together he never finishes the bottle, couple of sucks and then he throws it away and refuses any more. He also eats those nestle/gerber "puffs" snacks about half way between each feeding. He doesnt eat a lot of solid food that we eat, i mostly stick to the pre-made baby foods but i give him the occassional taste of our stuff, i'm really nervous about choking ( my little cousin almost died as a baby choking on an olive) I'm also super worried about him eating too much too, my whole family is obese and I really really don't want that for him so i'm trying really hard to keep his meals as healthy as I can. He has 8 teeth but doesnt chew so well. any time i've given him table food that we eat he's always choked on it. not severely but a small cough, like it went down the wrong tube or something. I guess every time is an exaggeration but there have been quite a few of them. I'm paranoid I know and I feel guilty now like i'm not feeding my child enough but he's always happy and bouncy and eats the baby food real good.. maybe I should start giving him the whole baby entree not just half...
