Reassurance: I concur with dr. Proffitt, but would like to reassure you that although disgusting, the maggot is unlikely to cause your child harm. The spoiling food, which supported the maggot, is more likely to be the problem-which would probably present with vomiting and diarrhea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son is 14 months. Is it okay for him to be eating jarred baby food? If so what age should he stop?
Big boy food!: He is probably ready to start transitioning to table foods and soft chunky foods like pieces of bananas, chunks of soft potatoes and veggies, scrambled eggs and small pieces of regular foods. Of course it's ok you are still doing transportable foods, in jars, but he will start noticing other options and is probably ready.

I give my eight month old around eighteen ounces of baby food a day. Is this too much? How many ounces of baby food should she be eating a day?
I agree with Dr. F.: Just respect your baby's food cues, read labels for nutritional information, allow her to finger-feed & continue breast-feeding till at least 12 months. You can hold a 2-handled open-mouthed cup for her to drink water from around 10-11 months & she'll be ready to wean to a cup before 15 months if you choose.

Or if you are making batches fill a BPA-free ice tray. Once you freeze, pop out the cubes and place individual portions in freezer-safe containers. Some ice trays have lids. Bananas, apples, pears are instant baby food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, if you need help portion control, the smaller servings may help you. You should work with a registered dietician or physician to make sure that, even with dieting, you get proper nutrition. ...Read more
6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive on breast alone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
