wow! that's great! i can start giving egg yolk to my dear son then. now he's approaching 9 mths but still on all vege porridge...
hi autumn, for meat right, how to feed ? fish can flake and mash... coz soft.. but chicken is hard... so do you blend? or tear it up like "ji si"?
lol.. when you say gonna get interesting it sounds to me like it's gonna get challenging.. wahahaha!!!
you need to minced the chicken.. i use my blender to mince it before i cook it
thanks annie.. then after that your dear daughter can chew? my dear son got no teeth yet .. he's already 9 mths... after you cook the porridge can still see the chicken bits right?
i think got teeth or not dosent matter cos their teeth only in front.. they wont be using the teeth in front to bite porridge isnt it? most of the time they uses their gums to gum food n sometimes they simply swallow.. so as long as the chicken bits not so big till will choke them then its ok imo. my girl simply swallows her porridge . she has 8teeth now though..i gave her chicken when she was 8mths
Shulyn, babies can eat egg yolk every day! Alicia used to have them every day until she got bored... haha...
Anyway, Lynette, you can cook the chicken then puree it or just add a bit of warm water to raw minced chicken, mix well till there are no lumps then pour into the porridge that's still cooking.
Snowbear - I read from the Super Baby Food and it says egg yolk contains fats which baby need it but didnt mention how often we can give...
Can i ask you, Chicken is one of the poultry that will cause allergy right? My boy is 8 months 1 week old now and we havent introduce Chicken yet. Wonder when can i start??
I dont't give everyday and only increase the portion bit by bit. Anyway, he take fish, pork & veg every week
chicken? i thought fish is more of an allergent? i started my girl with chicken first at 8mth then fish at 9mths..
blog: you can chk it out - it's a book that's more Asian-based) that it's ok to give egg yolk every day (and in fact it's good for them)!
It's ok to start chicken and pork at 8 months.
think differnt country has differnet views on what food to give baby.. chinese give baby fish quite early but those ang mo websites say to give only after 8mths.. japanese give as early as 5-6mths as well... but then japanese books says to give only chicken n fish at 5-6mths n pork only after 1yr old cos of the fat content that pork has n baby might not be able to digest them well before 1yr old. i always play safe so i follow the latest introduction date no matter its ang mo or japanese version hee. thus i gave fish n chicken after 8mths(as per ang mo sites n books) n then pork i shall wait till after she is 1yr old...beef is ok after 9mths though i have not intro her beef yet...
Maybe give little bit to test whether baby is allergic?
My baby is allergic to even egg yolk. He's also allergic to chicken and carrots.
thanks diymummy and autumn82,
ok... maybe i start with 2 feeding sp (baby's feeding spoon)
Other than body rashes, are there any other symptoms to look out for allergy??
Hmmm... for my boy he got rashes... And after the chicken, he got a cough... The cough I'm not sure is from the allergy or from the infant care actually. Haha. But the pediatrician said to stop the chicken.
Think most obvious signs are rashes.
not snowbear but i remember her saying that she gives egg yolk only till her girl was near to 1 yr old then she try giving egg white a little to test for allergy cos she intend to buy her a bday cake n bday cakes sure includes whole eggs.. she wanna be safe that her girl can eat the bday cake thus she tested the white slightly before she turn 1.. but then her girl dosent seem to like egg white even till now this mostly she still gives egg yolk even now.
for me, my girl loves eggs so i often give her eggs. either omelette, fried egg or hard boiled eggs. she eats the egg white as finger food n she loves it
can give the egg yolk when baby's 8 to 9 months. I gave dear daughter when she was 8 months cos i wanted to add in more iron to her diet.
for the egg yolk, best to give after 1.
