I used organic pumpkin. Is organic pumpkin supposed to be less sweet ?
Seems like this pumpkin not sweet at all that's why she rejected flatly.
But i did add a bit of marmite. Or maybe she's not used to having marmite ?
Gave Nestle Rice and Mixed Veg cereal to Ashley, she ate it!
Actually bought broccoli and carrot but not enough time to prepare so fed her the instant mix first. However, I did try to steam both the broccoli and carrot then blend it, it actually taste sweet! I think tomorrow I will let Ashley try the "fresh veg" with rice cereal since she has not poo for 3 days already
Forgot to share,
today brought Ashley to pediatrician for her 6 month assessment. She is weighing 7.9kg and 67cm. Doc said she is on the heavy side and dont't let her drink more than 150ml, mmm.... doc also recommend small frequent amt is better. Can I check with you mummies the length of your babies? 67cm donno if she is short or not.
I also asked Doc if can give fish, he said interestingly although fish is considered as highly allergenic, SG and Norway show babies least allergenic to fish. However, he recommended to start fish only from 7 months onwards, he is also concerned about the bones, so have to be careful.
I'm a newbie here, and my boy was born on 11th feb 2011..
So glad to see this thread here, at least I know I'm not alone!!
oh I want to share, my pediatrician said try not to let babies use the walker too much, cos they may skip the crawling process. Crawling forward takes more energy and effort but they will soon learn to do it.
Now Ashley 'gostan' very fast, within a minute she can gostan from one end to the other end of the mattress, must really watch out. In the cot, she flip very fast and start to gostan but will stuck at the end of the cot but her bum will still move up and down, so cute, like a car with engine on but stuck. hahaha
