Q.

feeding of almost 10 month old

Hi my daughter will be 10 months on the 6 May. She is 75.5cm and weighs 9.68kg. I just want to find out if I am feeding her right because she doesn't finish her milk feeds all the time and especially at the 13:30pm feed.
I give her
6am 225ml Nana 2
8am 5 Tablespoons Cereal mixed with water (has milk in)
10am Rooibos tea (which she sips on till lunch)
12pm 80grams apple puree or other fruit puree and a yoghurt.
13:30pm 225ml nan2
16:30pm Purity 3rd Foods (about 170grams)
18:00pm 225ml Nan 2
During the day she has a boudoir biscuit too
She then sleeps through till 6 or 6:30am.
Am I feeding her right? Why does she leave her bottle some times? When do I start making normal cooking for her?

My son is also 10 month old. he does not drink much. one in the morning, and one at night. eats poridge in morning, vegtables at 12'oclock and at 3 fruit, drinks juice now and then, sleeps trough. dont' worry to much about the milk. your baby is doing well. good luck.

Erm, not to sound rude, but do you finish all your food all the time? Babies also have waning apetites, and if she sleeps so well (lucky you!) she can't really be starving? Don't worry, she sounds perfectly fine to me!
