I was starving my child!!

Not actually starving her by the way, that would be beyond awful!

No, what I mean is I have never been too sure about portion sizes. I make my own meals for Ava as often as possible but some nights mama is just too darn tired to get the steamer out and chop the ol' veg so a yummy pouch does the trick.

Ava's not too fussy when it comes to food (yet) and she really enjoys the Ella's Kitchen range. Ella's Kitchen is a fab range of kiddie food from 4 months old. They do all sorts from purees to biscuits to cereal and they have just bought out a new range of fromage frais and rice puddings.

The very kind folk at Ella's Kitchen sent me some vouchers so that I could buy different bits for Ava to try. Well she pretty much loves them all and gobbles them right up.

Anyway, I usually give Ava half a pouch plus a fromage frais. I have been wondering for a while if I'm giving her enough. She never moans bless her (which has made me feel extra awful), tonight however one half of the lip smacking spal bol, with a hint of cheese, just wasn't enough. She munched the whole lot, plus a yogurt and a biscuit!! I couldn't believe it! I was so chuffed but then felt majorly guilty that I'd probably been underfeeding her! This mummy malarky sure is one big guilt trip. Lets see how she sleeps tonight on a full tum shall we.(By the way I wrote this last night, she still woke up 3 times *sigh*)

Tomorrow night she has mama's salmon and veg. That probably wont go down as well though.

I like to have an Ella pouch or two handy as well, I love them, they're the only baby food I've ever known that tastes like real food!

I've been doing exactly the same, giving This Baby half a pouch and then a fromage frais or a fruit pot. Some days I think she would wolf the lot and I have been known to keep squirting them onto her spoon until she seems content. I think their appetite varies a lot from day to day so it's hard to get it just right.

Ava looks very content though so you must be getting things right, plus she is adorable!

Thanks Kate :)

Ava is really gobbling down her food at the moment and is waking in the night for milk so I think she must be going through a growth spurt! Note to self must get her weighed actually!
