Is it too little?

Hi mamas! My LO is 7MO.. I started introducing purees and rice cereal when he was 6 months old. My son weighs about 9kg now. He doesn't eat alot. The portion of cereal i give him is about the size of his fist so probably abt 3-4 table spoon. Sometimes he doesnt finish it too. I feed him about 2-3 times in a day but im trying to feed him 3 times a day now. He is fully breastfed. Is it okay if he doesnt eat alot? According to his weight he is in the heavy percentile. I dont want him to gain too much weight either. So isit okay if i slowly gradually increase his solid in take? Will it affect any developments?

You’re not alone, mama! My little one is going to be 10 months soon and he still doesn’t like to eat solid food. There are days where he would only eat a few spoons of food and that’s it. It worries me too though he is gaining weight. He prefers to drink milk when hungry.

Yes, it’s ok if he doesn’t eat a lot. Milk should still be his main source of food and solids are complementary.
