My 10 month old dd still wakes at least two or three times per night to eat. My ds started sleeping for 6 or 7 hours straight when he was 7 or 8 months old. Our pediatrician says that dd should be "physically" able to sleep for 8 or more hours without waking to eat.
So I am wondering if perhaps she just isn't getting enough to eat throughout the day. Not counting the times she wakes up to eat at night, throughout a typical day, she nurses 5 or 6 times, about 10-15 minutes each time. She is too nosey to nurse longer these days. I try to feed her three small meals a day, whenever we are already eating. Breakfast is usually 1/3 to 1/2 cup of oatmeal (not baby cereal) and two or three bites of banana. Lunch is usually a green veggie like steamed spinach, broccoli, cooked green beans, etc about 1/4 C and avocado or apple sauce. Dinner is usually part of a baked sweet potato and whatever is left from lunch. Occasionally I give her some plain streamed whole grain brown or white rice. She has 6 teeth and can pretty much chew anything I would consider putting in there. Sometimes we give her some fruit for a snack near bedtime. I am afraid of feeding her too much and affecting my milk supply, as I hope to nurse her at least until 15 months, hopefully longer.
How much solid food should a 10 month old eat? Will it help with night waking if I feed her more?
