Just came back from pediatrician.. Errr I thot it's the final jab.. But nope. Reiann cos I counted that my son has had 6 jabs alrdy so I thought it will b another 6mths before he gets jabbed again but I'm wrong! Every month still needs to go for his jab.. Poor boy... Luckily he cried for like 2 secs
kary.. I steam the meat n blend the blend.. Add the stock/water so that it becomes like a paste.
As my son only eats like few tablespoon I froze the rest in cube trays.. But today asked pediatrician for her advise she says best to do it fresh even though the intake little... (Cos nutrients lost when you freeze them) So gotta try out this wkend to see how... N surprise surprise my pediatrician asks me to start fish on him! Goosh like super fast. Actually I dont think he's ready for food cos he still suck the food from the spoon (the way he latches on my breast) but well... He does enjoys the food n now snatches the fruit (plum) that I'm eating! Hhahah oh n he has got one pearlie white coming out.
Felicity totally no joke.. My son bite n pull my nipple!! Goosh think his gums sore or what.. Bite pull bite pull.. I was screaming at the nursing room at Centrepoint the other day! Hahah
memory I think best to feed on high chair to train the kid. I did that since my son was 4.5mths so he kinda knows whenever he's on e high chair it means meal times.
Initially I started with 1 tablespoon porridge for 1 week. Then when on to 2 tablespoon the next wk. for breakfast n dinner 1 cube of carrot/potato/banana/apple..etc then for the 4th wk onwards it became porridge twice a day. Day n night. My pediatrician says he should be eating half a cup.. But my son only eats like 4-5tableapoons! So gotta train him eat more. He's 7.75kg I m so gonna try the brocolli n sweet potato that reiann recommended! sounds yum!

Piglim what are these jabs for? I thought hep b at six months and then again at one year... I can't wait to weigh my baby now at her next pediatrician appointment, more importantly I wanna know her length cos I've not been able to measure her length. She seems to be just growing tall, cos her rompers and pants are all getting short but none are getting tighter.
my little one was 68.5 cm and 7.69 kg at her last check when she was 6 mths... and yup, the next scheduled appt is when she's 12 mths...
piglim, tell me about it, and she has like 2 teeth already!! a few times she bites me, i actually slapped her >< with my fingers, and being a toughie that didn't make her cry, but just frown and stares at me. i have to keep telling her, it's painful for mummy! if you have to keep doing it, i'll stop latching you!! urgh. luckily she didn't keep doing it though lol
Hi mummies! I dont nurse my girl to sleep. Usually ill just pat her at her backside and pops the paci in, she'll be asleep in 10mins. Im about to start her on solid soon. But have sooo many doubts on how to do so. Can any mummy guide me along? I read that cereal just have to add fm in it. Do i just make the milk and put cereal and then let her drink? Just like that? And also im thinking of getting organic food for her like carror and brocolli. I read frm books tht i have to add fm in it too? Cant i just puree the food and spoonfeed her?
Feeling very anxious recentlt cuz i am not sure whether i will do a good job in starting her on solids. Sigh!
Thanks Mamas for reviving this thread again. I havent been too active in the past and it was very enjoyable reading what you ladies have posted. And I miss it so much! But I guess we all have to do our part to keep the thread alive. So here I am!
My boy turned 6 month on Sunday and we started solids for him at week 25. He has tried 4 days each of rice cereal, banana and sweet potato and will be doing apple starting tomorrow. Thereafter I am planning to introduce barley cereal, avocado... this is so exciting!!! He is finishing his food but he is also very easily distracted so he takes a while to finish his 2 tablespoon portion. Starting next week I am also planning to feed him solids in the afternoon.
My boy is still huge, during his last check up few days ago he was 9.2kg and 68cm long. He is still on mixed feed, i.e. latches on in the morning and evening, and taking the bottle in noon (3oz breastmilk mixed with 6oz formula) and before bed (8 oz formula). I am hoping that his milk intake will not decrease after his solid feedings are established. I am planning to continue breastfeeding when I get back to work next month. It's going to be tough cos I have no milk bank and it's quite impossible for me to start one cos my supply is just enough to meet his demand. I would have to rush home in the evening for his feed. I feel guilty not continuing cos he hasnt been breastfed exclusively. We'll see how things go...
He is rolling and is attempting to lift his butt up to crawl now, loves standing and needs assistance while sitting. 2 pearlies appeared since he was 5 month old. Not biting yet and hopefully never.
As for sleep, he dropped his last night feed a month ago but he still gets up in the middle of the night on some days and need coaxing to get back to sleep. Since last month he has been getting nightmares (or night terrors?) About 2-3 hours into his sleep he will be screaming and crying. Most of the time he doesnt get up (sometimes he does and refuse to get back to sleep) and we need to pat him back to sleep. On a bad night he can have nightmares hourly. I am not sure what is causing them. Wonder if anyone else is experiencing this??
He is such a joy to be with and I am really not sure how things will be once I get back to work!!!
Mummies, what brand of cereals you gave your baby ? I bought organic cereals brands like happy bellies and earth best for him. Bought from us online but got to pay for shipping. Where you all buy cheap organic cereals ? And I heard nestle cerelac is sweet and higher tendency to cause obesity is that true ?
Hmm I gave my son only organic rice blended into powder form. Just fed plain for two weeks before I started mixing with stuff.. Yes nestle sweet! I wouldn't eat it myself actually...
I am giving my baby happy bellies brown rice cereal and earth best puree too. Bought from iherb.com. He seems to be taking it quite well
Rosemummy, I also buy from iherb ! Thought if there is any cheaper alternative
Hi Ahwang there is a brand of organic cereals called Healthy Times. They have brown rice cereal, barley, oatmeal. You can find it at the organic section of fairprice finest. I give that to my baby.
Hmm is it necessary to give cereals? Porridge cannot?
sigh last Friday evening my baby fell from the bed.. I cried so much. Cried more than him. I was too confident n complacent that I can catch him in time if he falls but he crawled so fast.. I was totally taken aback we didn't take him to the hospital cos he seemed fine the next day... Really regretted n felt so guilty... What a lousy mother I am.. Till today I still can't believe it...
I called the pediatrician whether I should bring him for chk up cos dont know if there r internal bleedings or not. But they said alrdy more than 24 hours n if he's not vomitting should b fine. Really hate myself.. He must have felt why mummy didn't protect me.. ;.....( he was moody on sat (next day) but was back to normal on sun... Really dont know if it'll affect his development... Anyone of you had similar experience?
Piglim - I'm sorry to hear but I'm sure he's just fine.
No, not necessary to feed cereal at all. I hardly fed any rice to my baby. Today I gave her butternut squash (baked then puréed) - I love it more than her ha ha! She seems to like sweet potato and broccoli best.
Healthy times is not bad.
Frankly speaking I'd rather keep food like cereal for when we are traveling or when I am very busy w work and no time to prepare..
Sorry to hear about that Piglim. I'm sure he's fine. dont't beat yourself up about it.
My boy loves porridge. One meal of porridge per day.I also give him papaya, banana etc. have not tried cereals or vege yet. Received samples from nestle and gerber. Yet to try.
dont't feel too bad about it... maybe you can consider buying mats to lay on the floor as your baby will be crawling about also...
as for food, i believe a number of people start off with cereals as there are available ones that you can buy off the shelf and you can just mix with water or milk to feed baby..
you can conside Heinz for organic cereals also... no, i am not employee of Heinz...
Awww piglim!! Dont beat yourself up about it, he's fine now.. I am always really scared to leave my baby on the bed too, now even with pillows around I feel she will just roll over them. I read a lot about babies falling from the bed, and everywhere it said if the baby is fine for 48 hours post the fall there is nothing to worry about it. And there will not be any developmental issues.
Hi ahwang mummy
I really got no time at all to cook. I half dead from work everyday rush fetch baby from ifc then morn rush to ifc then work
Very siong. When I home at 7 pm I rushed to warm up earth best puree. Thank goodness for this ready puree and invention of warmer!
Bought food processor not yet time cook.
Weekends maybe I try.
Porridge sounds good but ifc going give porridgr in 7 to 8 months I think. They asking me on menu preference already.
I know some working mummies manage to cook.
I still feel guilty giving ready made food but my mum told me as long baby grows up fine all same. I hope so!
So far I like earth best and ella kitchen.

Piglim my boy fell from the sofa onto the rug as well..dont't worry just monitor n c How..it happens when we're not careful.. have to Watch him more carefully..Originally Posted by Piglim:769582
my son is now 6 mths 3 wks. He started rice cereal, apple, banana, carrot... From 4.5mths.. I only started giving him meat when he turned 6mths (although when he was 5.5mths my pediatrician alrdy gave the green light). I was just uncomfortable giving him meat so early...
Will be starting him on fish tml. Bought thread fin fish...
Thanks mummies here for the comforting words... Still can't help feeling bad that his fault was caused by me!
Anw it looks like I need to supplement my milk with formula ;((( anyone doing that? Which brand you gals recommend? Dumex good? Sian.... I can't bf him till his 1 yr.. Sigh..
when you supplement EBM with forumla, just remember to finish feeding your EBM before feeding the formula as EBM is more precious... do not ever mix both in a single bottle when you feed...
Oooh... hardly been in here ever since I started working...
Yes I feed my girl porridge, and she loves it. mainly with carrots or pumpkims. yet to try greens. Puree wise I gave mixed veg or sweet potato. She dislike pear and apple... wonders... hahaha
Piglim.. Me too.. I placed my girl on the sofa cos she was sleeping.. I was so confident she wun fall cos that time she could flip but not roll.. She flipped and managed to push herself to the edge and I wasnt really paying attention until I heard a loud bom! scare the hell out of me.. quickly ran to her but luckily everything ok.. I was so guilty after that.. so now I just leave her on the playmat.. never on any elevated surface.. once bitten, twice shy..
