    Default Solids - how much each month (helpful chart?)

    Has anyone got a useful chart on how much babies are supposed to eat once they start solids?

    I've read a few different things online about how much but they seem to differ wildly (teaspoons versus tablespoons).

    Is there a rule of thumb people have found useful? My only concern really is I don't want to accidentally wean, although we could probably stand to work towards dropping one of our six million breast feeds per day.

    Is it all a redundant question because I've got buckleys of getting much into his mouth (as opposed to his clothes) anyway?

    I'm going to do a mix of finger foods and soft stuff and I get the message re "food before one is for fun" etc but if he likes it - how much is too much?

    I always just watched him to see if he was getting full or not, we did BLW so I always just put a variety of food on his tray and he ate as much or little as he wanted, I noticed around 9 months he started to eat more and you could tell he had enough when he started to just play with the food and not eat it!

    If you're worried about supply then offer solids maybe an hour after a milk feed. Otherwise I've never measured volume, I do BLW too and take my cues from him.

    I did BLW and ds would eat maybe 1-2 teaspoons a day at 9 months and by 12 months maybe 2 teaspoons a meal. By 16 months he was eating bowlfuls!
