my daughter was born at 10.5 pounds and 21.5 inches via c section. She's been super healthy, save for a cold she got at about 3 months. She's got all her vaccines, and the doctors say she's perfectly healthy, but it freaks me out how much she eats and sleeps.
At 9AM she eats 2 full jars of baby food and half a bowl of oatmeal of quinoa for breakfast, and has a 9 ounce bottle immediately after.
Then she zips around the house like a crazy person for 45 minutes or so, and then takes a 3-4 hour nap, with another 9 ounce bottle.
At about 2PM she eats another 2 jars of food, and then sometimes a carton of YoBaby yogurt. Then I give her a 9 ounce bottle mixed with half vanilla soy milk, half whole milk.
She goes down for her nap immediately afterwards, and doesn't wake up until 5 or 6PM.
Then she eats another 2 jars of food, and half a bowl of rice cereal. Then a chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie for dessert.
She goes through another 9 ounce bottle of formula, then another 9 ounce half whole milk/soy milk bottle.
She sleeps through the whole night and doesn't wake up until like 9AM the next morning.
I give her little crackers and pieces of fruit throughout the day too, and water when we've been outside and it's hot.
I start off the morning by giving her Enfamil liquid vitamins with iron, as recommended by her pediatrician.
But she is 11 months, and only weights about 19-20 pounds.
How can a kid eat that much and not be chubbier!?!!! Is this a normal schedule for a baby or not!
She's always been like this. I feed her all organic, usually Earths Best or Beech Nut brands. Is she not getting enough calories or is her metabolism just really high?
