From your measurements, his weight below the 5th percentile for his age. At 11 months he should be eating finger foods and regular foods cut up in small pieces and he should be feeding himself (with his hands and possibly with a spoon) at 3 meals a day. As a guideline for a 11-12 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 3-5 feedings a day, Non Dairy 1 serving a day – soy cheese (1/2 oz) or soy yogurt (1/2 cup). Starch 2 feedings a day – Infant Cereal (2-4 Tbsp), bread (1/2 slice), crackers (2), or pasta (3-4 Tbsp). Fruits or Vegetables 2-3 feedings a day – (3-4 Tbsp). Meat 2 feedings a day – 3-4 Tbsp) or beans (1/4 cup). Suggest using Pediasure at all meals for extra protein and calories to help him gain weight and grow. Make sure he is eating a protein food each meal (meat, fish, soy cheese, or soy yogurt) too. Some tips for additional calories: If he likes pasta, then add meat to the pasta instead of plain tomato sauce or plain pasta. Hoped this helped you.
