She started solids at 6months, my question(s) are.... How much to feed her.. Right now Im just doing breakfast and dinner solids... How much should she be getting each time ? Does she have to have the cereal or can I just give her pureed food?? Thanks :]!!!

She doesn't have to have cereal. My daughter would never eat it. I can't remember how I knew how much to feed them at a time. I think I just really followed their lead with it.

If I remember correctly, at the age mine were eating:

breakfast: rice cereal with 1/2 jar of fruit
lunch: pureed veggie
dinner: 1/2 jar veggie and 1/2 jar of fruit

I always followed their lead. If they wouldn't eat it all I didn't force it. I just made sure the option was there and let them eat til they were full.

thanks ladies. I basically do go with her lead, expect I almost think she is over eating. She is already pretty chunky hehe, but she eats over a jar she can eat around 2jars and its only her 2nd week of fruits/veggies

My Ped has a suggestion menu for different age ranges and stages. MeShell said almost the exact same thing as the menu said for this stage.

I will grab it tomorrow morning and PM you a few things from the pages if you would like.
