Ok so DS is almost 14 months. Hes always loved his food. But now I'm starting to worry coz he just eats a LOt
I'm grateful that he eats anything and easy to feed, don't get me wrong. It's just he eats large portions - which is fine but after he's finished that, if I'm eating, he will come up and want some. That's fine too but seriously I'm worried about over feeding. It's like his tummy is a bottomless Pitt!!
If I didn't control his portions he would just eat and eats and eat. He never seems to be 'full'
I don't know why coz most people will say 'geez, will he eat ALL that?' and YES he does!!
He's not fat, he's actually quite lean. (daddy has a fast metabolism) so I'm hoping he's the same?
I've asked my doctor but I don't know how seriously he took me. DS is only just 10kg at almost 14months.
Should I be worried?
In between meals he's fine, he's not crying for food - unless he sees us eating, even if he's just had a full big meal.
Generally he eats:
Breakfast: big bowl infant cereal with milk OR a scrambled egg with ham OR sometimes toast (rare)
Lunch: either a hot meal / couple slices of ham, a full tube of raffertys, few small blocks of cheese, 3 or 4 cherry tomatoes, 2-3 tablespoons of yoghurt with either grapes/banana/pear in it
Dinner: side plate size of food (kinda heaped) of something like:
Spag Bol with veg
Beef with veg
Mince and rice with veg
Half fish portion with veg and mash / rice
chicken with mash and veg
Or whatever else I can put together.
In between these meals he has fruit / yoghurt / baby rice crackers / rusks - sometimes most of these...
Is that normal?
