: Hi
: My 9 month old weighs 17.10 lbs. (Has lost weight due to canker sores)I had posted earlier about his his new eating habits. He wants only formula.
: His doc said that I should not feed more than 24 onces and, when he gets really hungry he'll eat solids. I just wanted for advise on what 9 month old eats and how much. Any advise would be grateful.

: Thank you


I don't know how much your baby can tolerate. I know every baby is different, but my babies ate everything we ate at that age. I always tried to aim for something healthy though like chicken cut into very tiny pieces with vegetables and rice all cut up and everything mixed together. They also sell the Beechnut jar foods that have Mac and cheese, chicken and rice for babies 8 months and up. I always gave them fresh food instead of the jars at that age because of the perservatives.

Hope this helps and good luck.
