How much food to give? Lock Rss

I just started my nearly 6 month old on solids and was just wondering how much to give. She is only a little tacker so i don't think she would fit a lot in.
I freeze her vegies in an ice cube tray. I normally try and get her to eat 2 ice cubes of something. Who much is everyone elses babies eating?

Thanks Ella's mumma
It's a little hard to say but Maneesha at 6 months was just having half a chat potato and some lentils for lunch and dinner. She's not much of an eater either!!!!!!

ME 30, DH 32, DD 10 , DD 4 and baby due 24th May 2015

An icecube is around 1.5 tablespoons (but maybe they are all different sizes).

Mia 'forces' down around a tablespoon of pumpkin but when she sees and smells the custard (dessert) - watch out! She will down a jar if I let her. Not keen on giving her custard though... Would rather she ate my 'home cooked, time consuming, flavoursome' meals I prepare. Or maybe they ain't that flavoursome???

As she was a little feral today I gave her a bit of milk arrowroot biscuit... Nearly took off my hand! Cute.

Mia was 6 mths last Saturday and weighs 6.5kg (2.4kg born) so just a little one like Ella.

Hi Ella,

I have a pamphlet here from the clinic that recommends u start with giving 1-2 teaspoons, gradually increasing until ur baby takes 1-2 tablespoons. 1 ice cube is the equivalent to 1 tablespoon.

Hope this helps!
