where you want to go? but horr, must wait till next year after june lehhh... By then, will have more pocket money cos going back to work.
My friends went to the lasik surgery at paragon and so far so good.
i think they've got packages for a group.
hee, hee, can, can!
next time i go, i chio you.
my boy is 6.5mos old. he has been on semi-solids for two weeks. taking plain brown rice cereal with EBM on its own for the first week, then mixed with some carrot puree in the second week. yesterday we added apple puree in the morning, and papaya puree in the late afternoon. he liked both.
my mum cooked porridge with fish flakes and pork (just for taste) for one day during his second week but he ran a slightly fever after his jab. so we told her to revert to cereal and EBM.
i also wish to boost my boy's iron since he's on total breastfeeding and would like to give him egg yolk. is it ok to start introducing egg yolk to him at 6.5 months? if no, can i introduce it at 7 or 8 months? if yes, do i do a hard-boil egg, then mash it up? add to his rice cereal or feed him just like that?
i dont't know about babies but sometimes when i eat egg yolk, the yolk will still get all lumpy and stuck in the top roof of my mouth and i would have problems swallowing it. so i dont't really egg yolk myself.
why egg white can only be given later? i only know egg white is rich in protein.
what other iron-rich food can i introduce to him at his age now?

Urm, before going to eggs (which are highly allergenic - yolk and the white), you can intro spinach, leafy veg like cabbage, kale, broccoli, before opting for meats like beef, pork and fish. Switch to barley and oatmeal if you can as well. Those foods are rich in iron.
Also in order to increase iron absorption, you should up Vit C intake as well by giving fruits high in Vit C.
You can refer to this page for a list of foods rich in iron.
hi egg white shouldn't be given till baby is 1 year old.
Egg yolks can be introduced at 7 mths. If you're worried about iron deficiency, you can ask your pediatrician for iron drops. my dear daughter is 9 mths old. on breast milk and semi-solids and iron drops.
once i start feeding dear daughter meat regularly, i intend to stop the drops.
there are some websites saying spinach should be given only after 10mths. you better check what you are giving before you give to your boy. also, remember the 4 day wait rule when you intro new food in case he is allergy to them...i realised you gave apples n papaya puree on the same day to your boy n both fruits are new to him? correct me if im wrong.
egg whites contains 3 kind of proteins (if i remmeber correctly) which some babies might be allegic to. thus its best to wait after 1yr old.
hi annie, ya, you are right. i flouted the 4-day rule cos i though apple and papaya are pretty safe foods. but i have told my mum to stick with papaya for the next few days. heehee.
yea they are relatively safe but then some babies do develope allergic reactions to some 'safe' fruits.. so better to be safe than sorry. also, even if not allergic, you also got to see if they can digest it well. thus better not to give new food at the same time.
Yeah, agree with annie - whatever you decide to intro, stick to the four day rule and check with your paed.
got it, mummies!
liver is a very good source of iron, but it has to be introed later when baby is older.
I'm looking for dessicated liver to give to my ger, cos she can take it now.
liver.. i heard lots of goodies about this but i have no plans to give my girl cos i find it disgusting lol. i myself dont eat is one thing.. hubby also dont eat.. n i cant make myself prepare it. seems gross.. hhe
LOL...same here Annie. My hubby loves foie gras, being French, but I absolutely won't touch it at all!!! He's hoping our daughter would follow him more than me. :P
wah he luxury! lol.
hmm im trying to get my girl to follow hubby more as in less picky lol. im super picky when it come to food.. so now im giving her all sorts of veg, fruits n meat so she wont be picky like me in future hopefully hehe. hubby takes some of those food but not all.. like in sg i ask him to try pig organ's soup n he give me those face.. lol. then he dont take pig blood etc as well but then he loves some dont know what intestine steamboat and also he loves foie gras as well.. lol
