    My 7 1/2 month old DD is a very enthusiastic eater. She's on 3 solid feeds a day and loves her food. She started at 5 1/2 months. She will have 3-4 ice cubes of food each feed varying from fish, chicken, beef with veges and she absolutely loves lentils. My problem is she has rapidly declined in her milk (she's bottle fed) when she went to 3 solid feeds a day. I'm lucky if she has 400mls a day but is thankfully drinking a lot more water. She's a happy little thing so I'm not too concerned. I just ensure she has more iron rich foods the days she has less milk.

    We started solids at 4 months for the first month we only gave 1 solid meal a day and bottles. Then at 5 months he started 2 solid meals that were breakfast and dinner then at 6 months (now 8 months old) he started 3 meals which is a weetbix mixed with formula for breakfast, mashed fruit for lunch and mashed meat and veg for dinner. He still demand feeds a 180 ml bottle of formula every 3 to 4 hours expect at night he has 240ml and that sees him through until breakfast. We found with pre made baby food he would eat very little of each meal but once we bought a baby bullet and started making his food he eats everything in front of him, I don't know if that is because the containers with the baby bullet help keep measurements to the exact amount babies need to eat or he just likes the fresh stuff.

    My DD is 7.5 months corrected and for breakfast she has a small amount of porridge with pureed / stewed fruits.
    For lunch we attempt BLW and she eats very little
    For dinner she eats a small tub (70ml?) of mashed / roughly pureed meat & veg.

    She's only 5.9kg so for her size it's probably a reasonable amount, but not a lot compared with other babies her age.

    My DD is 5.5mths and been on solids for 4wks (advice from paed & GP). She was only on one meal a day and is now on 3 smalls a day.
    She'll eat between 1-2 tablespoons food each meal. She wants more as she loves her food but as she's still little (6.1kg) i don't want to overload her system. Still breastfeeds on average 10x in 24hrs.
    She wants to eat whenever we're eating and will scream for our food so often end up giving her tidbits of our foods.

    OP: just follow your bubs lead. they all come in different shapes and sizes and are each a different baby. A good thing to consider is that their tummies are the size of their fists and that milk is still most important until 12mths. generally they'll still need 500-600mls milk a day between 6-12mths (formula or breastmilk)
