Shantae is 11 months old today the 13th...And she doesn't seem to eat as much as other babies her age...Also what other things can she try...She only has two bottom front teeth ??....I don't know what types of foods to try for breakfast she only eats a bit of cereal in the morning and baby food for lunch and dinner.Usually wastes most of it.....I keep getting advice on what else to put her on but she just seems to just not want to eat ....I need some advice and how much should a baby eat in one day???Thanx
Each baby is different...I don't have any where near an 11 month old...But I do have a 7 week old son and he's eatting more than a normal 7 week old should...But each child is different. I would call the dr and find out what they think...Did she just start not eatting as much or has this been going on for awhile? Some children are also picky. Does she/he have teeth yet? If they do, you might be able to start her on some real ppl food. I'm not sure though, ask the Dr. good luck and sorry I was of much more help.
By the way my 7 week old eats 6 oz each sitting with baby cereal in it!! it's nuts.
It doesn't matter how many teeth your baby has, they can chew w/o them. My son is 11 months, and I give him cereal, fruit and some toast for breakfast. He has those toddler ravioli things or 2 meat sticks and vegetables for lunch, and the same for dinner but plus fruit. I think you should be trying to give your child more solids, they are suppose to be eating the same as you at a year!! Seeing as he/she is picky your going to have to try new things and see what he/she likes? Sorry if I wasn't too much help, but feel free to email with any questions seeing as our children are so close.
My oldest daughter never ate much. Didn't eat a lot of solids until after a year. My second daughter is now 9 months and she can and wants to eat everything. But she is still only 14.9. All babies are different don't worry about it.
Thanx for the advice..Yea..I know every baby is different...My daughter is very picky....I want to try new things but I am afraid she will choke....I've tried soups...She seems to like it...But I need some ideas on what other foods are good to try..Do you girls have any ideas??? I am going to try the ravioli..Thanx.. Lauren_prk....I want to get her on a eating schedule....That doesn't seem like a bad thing does it???
When feeding her those ravioli things, make sure you cut them in fourths, the cross way. You wion't know if she's going to choke unless you try, i'm not saying try to make her choke, but unless she has shown problems w/ choking don't worry about it. Just make sure you cut her food up very small and never give her round pieces of anything (hotdogs, meat sticks, grapes ext.). If you want to feed her round food, just cut it into shapes that aren't round. Give her little pieces of fruit ( you can get them at any store already cut up, but cut them up even smaller). Only give her as big of pieces as you are comfortable with. You will gradually beable to give her bigger pieces. I hope this has helped, if you need anything else let me know.
Yea.. I know enough not to give round anything...I am paranoid about her choking but it's not that I don't try...I am starting to feed her different things...Thanx for the advice though...I was just worried because sometimes she bites big chunks of her fingerfoods..Like cookies..Thats all...**thanx for the advice ....
