YES! She eats 3 solid food meals a day, 2-3 breastfeedings, and around 10-12 oz of beverages. And then all the snacking she does allllll day long.

I can’t imagine our grocery bill after we have 4 more kids! I’m gonna need to hire someone just to push a 2nd cart at the grocery store with me lol.

She’s growing! 😀

My son always seemed to be a bottomless pit when he hit growth spurts, you can expect her appetite to taper a little once her spurt slows, but she’ll still be eating more than what used to be the norm 🙂

Have her night feedings lessened at all? Because her body could also be making up ‘lost’ calories & nutrients that weren’t taken in overnight. Just a thought!

Cecilia probably drinks over 30 oz of booby milk during the day (well mostly at night).  She is quite the chunky monkey at this point and though I know you can’t overfeed a breastfed baby, I feel like she’s overfed!

My youngest nephew has always been a great eater.  He is going to be 2 in April and he eats more than his 8 year old sister and 5 year old brother combined (they eat like birds though).  I had breakfast over there around christmas and he ate a banana and THREE medium sized pancakes for breakfast and was still asking for more!

He is in the 90th percentile for height though, and only in the 70th percentile for weight (which makes sense since he is so tall!). We hope his appetite will slow down once he stops growing so much, otherwise my sister will be in the poor house!

At 6 months K gets 25-30 ounces of breast milk and a few tablespoons of solids twice a day. It doesn’t seem like that much to me. Mainly because I was used to him eating 8-10 times a day.
