I need peoples opinion ( and help) on my 6 month olds feeding habit. I think I might be over feeding her !
She was ebf up untill 5 months and I have weened her off the breast gradually and now she is on 5 bottles of 8oz formula.
She has milk approx every 3 1/2 - 4 hours during the day, and has recently been taking one at night ( about 11ish). when I was breastfeeding her it was rare that she would feed at night more often than not she would sleep through.
She is also experimenting with food and has about 8 teaspoons full of food at breakfast and tea time.
she always guzzles down the milk and food but looking at it, it seams a lot compared to other peoples babies.
Have I just got a hungry baby or am i getting her into bad habits of overeating?
DD was ff on demand and just before weaning at 6 months she was taking about 9 floz every 3 hours. She is in the 91st centile for height and weight and is not considered over weight at all aged 15 months. She still eats a lot but also moves a lot. I took the view before she was weaned that she would let me know when she'd drunk enough and she did by pushing the bottle away. It never occurred to me I control her milk intake, she was busy growing.
