Feeding Question

My daughter is 6 months old and has been eating solids since she was 4 months. I just started feeding her meats a few days ago. My question is, how much should she be eating? Some jars are 4 oz. and other are 2 oz.. So far, I feed her cereal with 2 oz fruit in morning, cereal with 2 oz. veggie for lunch, and 4 oz meat/ veggie or fruit jar for dinner (she also drinks about 24 oz formula a day). Does this sound like too much?little?

Your lo should be your guide in how much is enough. Feed her until she shows signs of fullness (pulling away from spoon, losing interest in the spoon, pushing the spoon away ect.). To me it sounds like she is getting enough solids along with her formula, but you could always offer her more and see if she takes it. BTW FYI my son is 8 months old and generally eats 6tbsp cereal for breakfast, 3oz fruit/1oz cereal for lunch, 3oz veggie/meat/bean combo & 2oz fruit for dinner.
