DS is almost 7 months old and we are now on 2 meals a day (lunch and dinner). How do I know if I am overfeeding him ??
We tried BLW but it didn't work for us - he wasn't interested in feeding himself... but loves his purees (literally squeals with excitement when he knows he's about to get lunch or dinner )
We have this and each pot is 60 ml. So this afternoon he had 2 pots of sweet potato followed by 2 teaspoons of apple puree - was that too much ?? He does turn away when he doesn't want any more, but this afternoon I stopped feeding him myself (before he could refuse) as I thought he had already had enough...
Babies are really good at self regulation it's us adults who ruin that with the 'just a bit more' and 'you have to clean your plate'. As long as you respond by stopping when he indicates he's done and don't push more you'll be fine.
With my 4 I was guided by them. Ds1 weaned very slowly. Dd1 went to 3 meals a day literally straight away! Be guided by your ds, trust your instincts. Some days he may eat more than others. By 7 months, I think mine were all on 3 meals a day.
