- I have a girl of 8 months half. Eat 5 meals a day, three of which are milk. In the rest we eat soup, mashed vegetables with egg or liver meat, depending on the days, yogurt, fruit with biscuits and on some mamaliguta days. I also introduced bread into the menu, and then it went crazy. Although eating a lot does not gain weight. It weighs only 7.4 kg. It is normal?


At the age of 8 months, a baby should have 4-5 meals a day, of which 2 milk. Milk tables are offered in the morning and evening, totaling 400-600 ml milk / day, and can be added to one of them cereals, especially to infants with low weight.

At 10 o'clock, a fruit snack can be offered to infants who receive it. The main meal remains the lunch table, which must contain vegetables along with meat or egg yolk. The afternoon snack can consist of crushed fruit with added cereal, cow cheese or yogurt. To ensure proper weight gain, you must reduce the amount of milk in favor of solid nutrition.

Two tables of milk are enough at this age. Also, the addition of cereal (flour) in milk or fruit puree can be helpful.

Regarding the weight, it is appreciated both depending on the age of the baby and on the birth weight (you did not specify the birth weight).

In general, the baby grows an average of 750g / month in the first 4 months, with 500g / month in the next 4 months and 250g / month in the last 4 months of the first year of life.

But these values ​​are only indicative, each baby having its own growth rate.
