Baby Food..

So, there are times where my son is still hungry after a full, bigger container of baby food. He is almost 11 months old, and I am trying to slow down how many bottles he is getting in a day. Is it okay to give him more than one container during a feeding?

    I would say so. We always gave our daughter a yogurt with a fruit or veggies depending on time of day.

    Try giving him pieces of soft real food. That will help fill him up more. You can give him a container and then chunks of avocado, or banana or steamed veggies

    Yes! Feed your baby until he/she show signs of being full. They don’t know how to over eat unless you physically force it!

    Also, formula/breast milk still should be his number one source of nutrition

    When my daughters were younger, I also used to mix some cereal into the homemade baby food (like rice cereal into the carrots and peas for instance.)

    I've tried that. He doesn't like it. I think it might be the texture because he likes basically everything except for the cereals/oatmeal and things like green beans and peas.

    Definitely! By this age he should also be eating table food. That will help fill him up as well.

    If he’s still hungry after eating, he might not be getting enough protein. Maybe try something more filling like something with meat, legumes or other sorts of protein to help keep him full in a healthy way. Feeding babies just fruits & veggies doesn’t fill them up much or for too long, not to mention they might be missing out of vitamins & nutrients. Mix things up and balance their meal as you would yours.
