Eating enough

Just curious as to how much and how often your infant eats each day and does (s)he have teeth/how many?

I have a 2 year old and a 10 month old. I fed on demand if they were hungry i nursed. At 6 months we added solids, cheerios for snack and ground up whatever we were eating for meals for them. My oldestest nursed till she was a little older than 1 year and I'm still nursing my youngest. but only before naps and bedtime and when he wakes up in the morning. He has 4 teeth now and my oldest did too by the time she was that age

Every baby is different... When my son was an infant, he loved to nurse and he nursed every few hours all day long, even after he started eating baby food, he still nursed avery 3-4 hours during the day. When he turned one, I started to wean him, dropping one nursing session every few days, offering a cup of rice dream (he's allergic to dairy and soy) and a light snack instead until he was finally weaned at 15 months. My daughter weaned herself from nursing at 8 months(just refused to nurse!) and took a bottle of formula every 4 hours during the day, and when she turned one, I gave her a cup of milk in place of the bottle. Now she eats breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack, and dinner with the rest of the family!

Both of my kids had four teeth on the top and two on the bottom by their first birthday.
