My Dd is 7.5 months old and luuurves her food
Tonight she ate so much I was worried she might pop. I gave her a massive wedge of pumpkin (only cut that way for ease of her holding it) and she ate the ENTIRE thing. In addition to everything else I might add.
Do I need to be mindful of how much I give her given she is such a piggy? Or trust her to moderate her own intake?
I try and time things so she has had a milk feed within the last hour but it is difficult with fitting in with family meals etc. I have however always offered her a bm top up before solids so she's never starving for them. Do I need to worry about this? I stress out that she might self wean she loves her food so much lol.

BLW and Quantity. Is there such a thing as too much?

I think the beauty if BLW is that they choose how much they want to eat , just like us, sometimes they are hungry and sometimes not ! I personally don't think she will over feed herself on healthy food , just make sure she is eating a variety and not just the same thing , it's great to see she loves her food!

My DS goes through phases of eating loads and then nothing. I wouldnt be concerned like the others have said if she is getting healthy foods.

Sometimes I swear DS eats more than I do. He goes through stages of eating heaps, then hardly anything. I don't think its anything to worry about, especially if she's eating healthy food.

Thank you for the replies
I am truly astonished at the volume she consumes for such a tiny wee thing, but she hasn't dropped any bm feeds so I must be getting the timing and balance right I guess
She literally has not met a food she does not love
