How much protein should my 9 month old be getting from solids?

How much protein should my 9 month old be getting from solids?

Not enough to count: A 9 month-old baby still gets most of his nutrition from breastmilk or formula. The baby foods and mashed up adult foods supply some extra calories, some of which is protein, but it's not worth counting the grams. The baby should try different flavors for fun, but he doesn't need to think of solid foods as a very important part of his diet until after his first birthday. ...Read more

My baby girl  is 3 months old. How much formula should she be consuming & how much sleep should she be getting in a 24 hr period?

Depends: Your baby's weight and frequency of feeding as well as the weight percentile on the growth curve determine how much he/she should eat. A premature infant may have a more rapid rate of growth, and consequently a proportionally higher volume. Average babes should eat every 3-4 hrs, and be allowed to stop when they are full-not necessarily when bottle is empty. Sleep goal-about 13-16 hrs/day. ...Read more

How much solid foods should my 9 month old be eating at each meal?

How much solid foods should my 9 month old be eating at each meal?

He decides: Babies are good about knowing how much their tummies can hold. You need to tune into his cues as to when he is full: turns head away from spoon, spits the food out, refuses to open his mouth, etc. As long as he is sitting there wiling to eat, you can offer the food to him. As he eats more solids he will correspondingly drink less milk, generally maintaining the same number of calories in a day. ...Read more

Dear Dr my baby is 9 months old eating solid foods still nursing him can i pump out milk and give him.Baby date of birth is 24th feb 2014?

Yes: Pumped breast milk will be fine. It is not quite as convenient but has the same nutrition. Pumping is not as good as sucking at stimulating breast milk. He may not want to take it from a bottle but maybe a cup if he is used to your nipple. All the best and congratulations on wanting to continue breast feeding! ...Read more

My 3 month old spits tha majority if her for?La out or lets it run down her chin . How can I be sure shes getting enough to eat ?

Measure her growth: Many babies spit a small amount of formula. If she is letting it run down her chin she is telling you she is full. Continue to feed as usual and have your doctor measure the growth at her 4 month check up. You don' t need to worry unless it is causing coughing, fussiness or poor growth. ...Read more

My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day(ml)?

My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day(ml)?

Milk: It is recommended to switch to whole milk at one year. The recommended amount is 2 cups a day (to provide adequate vitamin d) but not much more. When kids are "milkaholics" they actually can become iron deficient. I'd shoot for 2 cups (16oz) per day and stop there. (in a cup - get rid of the bottles too.). ...Read more
