Hello all, can you please tell me your child's day (as in food and play)
My 8 month old girl is eating, not gaining. This is her typical day as follows
Weet bix and formula (few spoons of weet bix)
Then she will nap
A green veg risotto with chicken(purée)
Play and maybe nap
Yogurt with fruit
Maybe half a toast
Nap in between
Another risotto with some root veggie purée
Is this enough? Should I do something different, I'm at my wits end. Don't know why she's not gaining.
She's a fussy eater

How much formula a day is she having?

I offer 210ml each feed she will probably have half at the time and the rest a bit later on.

Is she healthy and normal weight? Is it just this month she didn't gain?
Have you tried her on some healthy fats to bulk up her calorie intake ? Avocado is amazing - either just by itself or mashed on a rice cake or toast? Splash coconut oil over her steamed veggies, eggs- boiled or scrambled or an egg pancake , flake some fresh grilled salmon and add it to risotto or pasta or just put it on her tray to pick up , almond butter on rice cakes or toast

Thank you. Coconut oil? That's new. She's 6.7kg, very happy baby, she's not gaining weight, but apparent she's getting bigger in length. Pasta? As in the shells? Scared to give her that. I'm willing to try anything at this stage. My son was the opposite. Have not tried rice cakes either.
She likes eggs though. As in French toast.

I started my girl out on pasta using Risoni; it's rice - shaped pasta and less of a gagging/ choking risk.
