well lola is now 6 1/2 months old and weve been weaning her since 5mnths and im concerned im not feeding her enough, she always seems hungry and screams if she sees anyone eating. heres her day let me know hat you think and if shes just a pig or im missing something.
9am-porridge (or other baby breakfast)
10-11ish- finishes bottle used on brekie and naps
1ish- lunch (she isnt finger feeding very often yet as it takes sooo long) can be pasta chicken veg mix etc
4.30pm-dinner (pasta chicken veg lentils something etc)
7pm- 7oz formular-bed
10pm- she always wakes starving has a breastfeed and a 7oz bottle
in between this shell happily munch on toast cheese veg sticks rice cakes etc, i was so confident with jack but this time im panicing xxx
Leighton is having similar Laura so don't worry.
6am - 7oz milk
7am bowl of porridge
11am 7oz milk
1pm - 1 sachet of Ellas kitchen puree and a yoghurt or fruit pudding
4pm ish 7oz milk
5.50 sachet and yophurt or fruit pot, sometimes he has another 7oz bottle too
7 pm 7oz milk (then sleeps through from 7.15 till 5.30)
He also tries a few finger foods depending on what we are eating. I wouldn;t worry about finger foods yet either, they will do things in their own time and if you try to force it on them it will do more harm than good.
Sounds like she's getting a great diet there Laura,what about a little yoghurt after lunch?
Mine are pigs-Joseff is 13mth and eats as much as his 5 year old cousin! I know you shouldn't compare your kids,but I'm glad you say you do it-I'm always at it! Tom seemed so much more advanced at this age,poor Joseff isn't being treated as an individual Must try harder to stop!
Thing is you do loose a certain amount of confidence I think with number 2,you have a sml age gap like mine too,and I think everyone assumes you just know,i've found Joseff a very different baby!
she hates yogurt, ive tried allsorts, unless she rolls and manages to steal jacks spoon then its a whole different story, need another cook up this weekend so im gonna find some pudding recipes and hunt asda for the smaller greek yogs as she likes that with fruit in but a big pot is such a waste!!!
Jacks is a big big pig, but still a lil man, he can quite easily eat all day, he just loves all foods really happy weaner whereas lolas a bit fussy and im having to hide fruit in things, were getting there she enjoys her food just need to fill her up lol!
have discovered today though shes not well so that might explain why shes not been happy xx
