Quoting Mama of *3*:" I have no idea what is normal--my girls didn't eat a whole lot at this age, but my son seems to eat A ... [snip!] ... cup of grapes. He was just now trying to get his sister's sandwich :? That seems like a lot for a 14 month old in one sitting!?"


That sounds like about as much as my DS would eat in a week! He doesn't care to eat solids...unless it's junk food, like marshmallows, chips and chocolate bars...then I'm sure he'd eat just fine :roll:

DS wouldn't even care if he never drank water again. As long as my b**bs don't dry up, he's happy. I wish he would eat more though :( I feel like he's starving.

Quoting Mama of *3*:" That must be it! He outeats the girls for sure. Just insane how much they stuff in there---and when he eats he acts like he hasnt had food in days lol"



Yeah, C usually eats two dinners. Haha.
We get home and he immediately thinks its dinner time. He will throw a screaming tantrum waiting for me to cook dinner so I normally make him something else, and then by the time dinner is ready he will eat AGAIN. Yesterday we got home and he ate a whole PB&J, some cheddar cheese and watermelon... and then an hour later we sat down for dinner and he had a full serving of spaghetti, meatballs, bread & butter and cottage cheese. Haha. AND downed two full cups of almond milk. He's a tank. The other kids were this way at this age, too.
