how much food?

So I checked on Dr Sears site & didn't see anything about how much food to feed once you introduce solids. Lacey is devouring her cereal & would eat more than we are offering her-but I don't want to stuff the poor girl too much. We've only been doing it off & on for 2 weeks (we stopped rice because she stopped sttn but now oatmeal is fine-the same thing with DD#1) so unsure how much or how often to feed her. Any suggestions? TIA

Hi Laura!


Very little :) If she is really interested in 'eating', you might try giving her some momscicles to keep her happy. http://www.mother-2-mother.com/momsicles.htm


Here's a good schedule: http://www.mother-2-mother.com/samplemenus.htm


HTH!

Thanks Theresa!

I can't believe how much I've forgotten in the last few years. This is one of those things that you swear you'll never forget when doing it with the 1st but it quickly leaves the brain. Those links were great-always good to get a reminder about how little they really need.
