yeah, my oldest eats quite a bit, but he's changing. One example - he used to eat a whole avocado but now he will only want half of one at a time.

I'm so jealous of all y'all who's 1 year olds diet eat very much cause of breastfeeding. By 1, my son was still breastfeeding like 8-12 times a day AND outeating his 3 year old brother. Seriously my kids have hollow legs! Now he's 1.5 and his brother is 3.5 and they can outeat me. And they're both skinny.

Well, mine just seem to get bored of food eventually, around 1.5-2, and it's really not so fun when they beg to nurse all day long and I have to say no half the time. I am tandem nursing and it gets to be too much at times. If it's not one thing it's the other... I always used to worry if they were eating enough.

At a year old, my daughter was eating the same as me.

She did slow down after a few months. I just put a regular amount on her plate. If she eats it all, I put more.

Toddlers self regulate, so I wanted her to be the one in charge of how much she ate.
