This is a discussion on EDD October within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by lyra I finally fed my son semi solids! Haha. After 3 tries, today, he finally ate all ...
My son likes the apple too. I taste to try if it's sweet before feeding him. Some fruits are on the sour side and he hates the sour taste. I didnt manage to feed him a lot this time coz we r bz preparing to go out visiting parents in law. I think when babies can sit up, we can start giving them finger food right? He has yet learn to use sippy cup properly though
My son hates apple! Same as my hubby and myself I guess?! So it's good for me in a way.
so far he likes his rice cereal, I give Hipp organic, as well as pumpkin and pear.
I notice his poo a little dry now that we started on solid though. So after I steam the pear, the water I will let him drink, coz I dont't give him plain water at all.
dont't forget the 3 days rule for solid food.

My in law said dont feed baby porridge before 1year birthday cos baby will have alot of wind in stomach... do you think is true?
When did you all feed your baby porridge?
Wow your baby boy is BIG!! I always thought that my gal is big (she's 6.7 kg at 5 months old) but if compared to your boy, she's normal eh :P Now my gal slim down abit as she started her crawling, flip/flop and walking recently. Just hope that she can stay healthy at all time
I heard only overnight porridge will create wind in the stomach.. actually alot of mummies start to feed their baby with porridge + veggie or fish or meat... i feed my baby steam pumpkin, sweet potatoes, carrots, apple and frisco rice cereal.. she's loving it. I have the intention to prepare porridge + Brocolli and maybe some yoghurt for my gal next week as she's getting more and more 'touchy' and curious about the surrounding around her.. always touch, grab and put things in her mouth nowadays.
Thanks, marshmallow! I'll buy from them. Mummies, when you cook porridge, you cook it like adults porridge, just add more water n cook longer so that it will be softer is it? Do you cook brown rice porridge?
when to let them finish the whole bowl of solid food? my son tend to get tired of eating after more than 5 spoons... then he will ask for milk.
How much are you giving? For myself if give rice cereal I will only make 2 teaspoonful of cereal
mix with about 40ml of breast milk or more depends on the consistency. He finished all. I wun give milk then.
Until 1.5-2hr later he want he will cry for it. Since starting solid, my son lose interest in milk already
How big is your bowl of solid food? For me, I give half cup (around 5 spoonfuls of brown rice powder) and then add in 10 spoonfuls of milk to make it to the right consistency. He finished all happily. I will increase the amount as the day goes by.
I gave him solid food before bedtime, hoping that will make him sleep longer but sigh, he still wakes up every 3 hr for milk.
I mixed cereal in his milk to let him drink, i mashed potato to feed him. Today he ate more spoon than ytd. I realised he will increase the no. of spoon himself want. I did mixed milk to make the mash potato not so dry and also give him water between feed.

My Girl is six months old, Do you all stay wake up and feed your babies during midnight?
If my last feed is 11pm + ,let her sleep until morning and feed her at around 7am?
around six month plus babies, how much formula should she be drinking?
She drinking about 100-120ml each time only...2 times of porridge each day...n one meal is brown rice ceral is it fine?
If your baby can sleep through to morning, let her sleep through. So good that she can sleep through. Mine still wakes up about 3 times throughout the night. I breastfeed by latching directly so I'm tell you how much is ok. 2 meals a day should be ok for 6 month old. I'm feeding my 6 month old boy 2 meals a day. Morning brown rice and evening either brown rice or something else.
She drinks little milk in the day... like about 100-120ml per time ...
so if I dont feed her at night...i afriad she not having enough milk.
But from the elderly advised is..as long day time got eat ok...let her sleep at night.
My girl quite skinny..only 6.26kg in six months.
But the doctor say as long she is active is ok.
6kg and she's at 10th percentile? serious?
must go back see health booklet
