Solid food help!
My daughter will be 6 months next week. She's had 1-2 tablespoons of baby food each evening since she was 4 1/2 months. Only switching to a new veggie every 6-7 days. She does fantastic with it and loves the veggies. (Backing up a little bit)...When she was a month, her pediatrician recommended adding a teaspoon of rice cereal per oz of formula in her bottle because she would spit up and scream all the time. Since then, she no longer is bothered by spitting up (and does it much less). Now she's almost 6 months and still has a teaspoon of rice per oz of formula. I'm noticing she's becoming less and less interested in her bottles but wants more veggies and cries when she's done with the tablespoon of them. I'm so at a loss of what to do. I thought formula should be their main source of nutrients, but she's only getting maybe 10-12oz a day. Shes not fussy and seems fine. I just need guidance on what to do. Do I increase her intake of baby food? Get rid of rice in the bottle? Add rice to baby food? just keep doing what I'm doing? I'm a first time mommy and just want what's best for my sweet little blessing, I just don't know how!
