My 8 month old is VERY active and therefore VERY hungry. He tried baby food meat for the first time yesterday and LOVED it! I had to stop him from eating too much! He wanted MORE, lol. It's actually really great because he was a preemie at 5 lbs, taken a month early for medical reasons. We had to feed him extra with a tube for the first month. Now he's great and loves his food. His activity levels are keeping his weight down. As a first time Mom, discovering all of these new things is SO awesome.
