#5: How Much Should My Baby Be Eating?

Episode art for episode "#5: How Much Should My Baby Be Eating?". Pictured is a baby sitting in a highchair eating spaghetti.

In this episode, I am addressing one of the most common questions that I get asked: “How much is my baby supposed to be eating?” If you have ever wondered to yourself whether your baby is eating too much or too little, this episode is written for you! I explain what “normal eating” is for babies, tell you the truth about industry standards for portion sizes, and highlight how to know when your baby needs extra support with their feeding habits. 

If you still find yourself concerned with your baby’s intake after listening to this episode, the Baby Led Feeding course is your next step.
