My baby's diet - 8th month

LG is growing every week. So are his activities and his appetite. Ever since he started crawling, I've notice a change in his feeding routine and the quantity of food he consumes. Until a day or two back, I did not realise that he is hungry when he would start beating me after the feeds or food time which meant he was not satisfied and wanted more. On an experimental basis I increased the quantity little by little and now he sleeps happily and looks contented too. An active crawling baby obviously would need more intake than the one who used to lie on his back all day.

8:00 a.m. - 200 ml of porridge - made from 4 scoops of formula and 4 spoons of ragi.
11:00 a.m. - 1 Mashed carrot and tomato
1:30 p.m. - Dal rice or 6 scoops of Nestum Rice/Rice-ragimixed with curd. Or 4 scoops of Easum mixed with curd.
3:00 p.m. - Mother's feed
4:30 p.m. - 120 ml/ 150 ml of formula
6:30 p.m. - Mashed banana or apple or Marie biscuit.
8:30 p.m. - 6 scoops of Nestum.

This month I have also tried Idli in curd and potato. He understands the taste in difference but was ok having it.
