Does This Sound Normal

My ds is 9 mos and this is what he eats in a typical day: morning- 5oz formula, cereal, 1/2 jar stage 2 fruit, 2 tbsp yogurt; Lunch 4 oz formula, 1 jar meat and veg mix, leftover fruit from morning; supper 5oz formula, 1 jar veg, 1 jar fruit and teething biscuit or cookie, bedtime 6 oz formula. I'm asking because he was 9lbs11oz at birth but is only about 20lbs now. He has gone from being off the charts at 2 mos to being less than at the 50th percentile. My 1st ds ate about the same amount of food but had at least 4 - 8oz bottles of formula/day and was 24lbs at 9 mos...not really worried, but just want to keep an eye out...so what do you think??

Sounds normal. He's gaining faster than my oldest ds... he was 9 lbs. 5 oz. at birth and was only up to 21 at a year! Now he's only 42 lbs. at 6 1/2!!

I think you lo sounds on track. If ds is gaining weight and not acting hungry then he is okay. My dd was only 20 lbs at her 12 mth checkup...

Thanks! I know all babies are different, but I just feel like he's not getting enough compared to my oldest, you know? He doesn't act hungry at all. He used to nurse soooo much that I couldn't keep up and he had to be supplemented. It's just such a switch for him...
