My confinement lady last min accepted other people offer.
I need a confinement lady in early nov. Can recommend me any reliable one?
going to introduce rice cereal to her, hopefully she can get some nutrients fro there.
I dont't feed my girl solids with spoon yet cos experienced mummy recommended to introduce solids to baby with bottle first.
When they finish everything for a period of time every time you give them solid, then can try switching to using spoon.
I did try feeding Aly with spoon before, she didn't like it. Same case like your girl, eat a bit & spit out most of them. So i changed to bottle immediately & she finished everything. You can try feeding your girl using bottle first & see if she finishes it. Do that for a few days, or maybe 2 or 3 weeks then switch to using spoon.
Aly finished pure brown rice for 3 consecutive days already, but i still dont't intend to switch to using spoon yet although before this, she's already been taking in brown rice with milk for weeks.
I guess i'll only start feeding her with spoon when she's 6 months old.
With bottle feeding, my girl finishes her brown rice in about 20mins.
For pure brown rice do you mean follow the instructions and pour warn water mix with the brown rice powder?
Any mummies invested in the Combi Rashule high chair ?
It's able to recline so that baby can sleep in it too & can use up to 48 months.
Not sure if i should invest in one cos my girl is gonna outgrow her swing soon.
It holds babies & toddlers up to 9kg & my girl is already 6.7kg.
I bought the instant brown rice powder, so i only have to add hot water to it.
It depends on what kind of brown rice you mummies bought.
BTW, i actually tasted the brown rice before giving it to my girl & yes, it tasted bland, & yucky (for me).
So to encourage my girl to accept brown rice, i actually added about 1 & 1/2 teaspoon of apple puree to it & mix together before giving my girl.
Today I went NTUC to buy Nestle Cerelac Brown Rice, I just add about 60ml of water to 1.5 tablespoon of brown rice powder (thereabout), it is watery but taste good! Not too sweet, just nice. I fed my gal with a spoon, she ate! Her tongue keeps stick out to lick, I guess she still doesn't know how to eat from a spoon yet but I think I want to train her now, sigh... only weekend to train.....
After seeing the way you mummies feed brown rice for your baby, I'm wondering am I feeding her in the wrong way?? Cox I have try to mix it wit her milk and let her drink, but she ot choke. So I switch to feed her directly with spoon but make it more watery. Now, she is taking 2 big spoon a day (after mix with water is about 3/4 soup bowl). Am I giving her too much??
Can someone teach me how to read this ?
My girl is 6.7kg, 5 months & 1 week.
How much percentile is she now ?
She looks out of the range, lol.
As long as babies are ready to take solids, they can take Nestle Stage 1 products, need not wait till they are 6 months old.
