    Question How many meals?

    Just wondering if 4 meals of solids per day is excessive at 6 months?



    I give V toast and finger food in the morning with a bit of mashed banana then veges/meat for the next 2 feeds then fruit or cereal for the last. She is enthusiastic and even cranky until I offer food, even after I bf her.

    Thanks

    Sweets, she wouldn't eat it if she didn't need it. Babies aren't like us, they only eat what they need. Keep feeding her, you may find she's growing or needs more energy at the moment. I found DD's appetite fluctuated with growth spurts.

    As long as you're offering a bf first and the meals are small, there's no real issue with the number of 'meals' she's having. They'd probably be classified as snacks if she was a bit older! Sounds like she's getting all she needs.
