stonson, does the book contain recipies?thxs
It has loads of recipes Suitable from 6mths till toddler
My dear daughter just turned 4 mths 1 week this week.. and Ive been doing a bit of research on semi-solids.. I've compared the feedbacks from a US based forum with feedbacks from mummies from Mummysg (s'pore).. seems like the Mummies from Mummysg, most of them are strongly-opinionated against giving rice cereals to babies before the age of 6 mths. Whereas, the mummies from the US based forum on the whole, start giving semi-solids around 4 mths and above..
Quite confused here.. but my dear daughter has been showing signs that she's ready for semi-solids.. can hold her head steadily unassisted etc..
and from one of the mummies here, her pediatrician gave her the green sign to give semi-solids to her 4 month old baby.
Just want to know how do you prepare the rice cereal with FM to give your babies.. Thanks!
Im also quite inclined to start solids on my soon-to-be 4mths old baby.
Not because of anything, but because he hasnt been drinking much milk.. From 1mth old til now his intake is still the same. Recently he hasnt been motivated to drink milk also.
quite confused should I just let him be or start at 4mths.
hi Alicia-mummy, thanks for yr reply
Yes Adam has been putting on weight despite his constant milk intake amount. Guess i'll hold out till he is 5mth-6mths old. But quite eager nonetheless, very exciting!
Im keen in the book as well. Do you have any pic can PM me? as well as the price...
Whn my son was 4.5mths old, I tried giving him abit of Healthy Times brown rice cerasl (1 tablespoon 1x a day) just to try only... beos that time his milk intake was getting lesser.
If he didnt like it I would stop and try again when he is older. But seems that he turned out to like it very much. He could finish whole bowl n all his milk.
But after that try, everyday until now he just turned 5mths I m still giving him 1 tasblesppon 1x a day cos I want to wasit till he is 6mths old before experimenting with more / diff foods.
My friend commented its very little and she started at 4mths old for her girl, she ate almost everything from Cheerios to porridge, puree etc.
Honestly, there are too many conflicting thoughts and opinions on whats the BEST age to start weaning and Im getting so confused myself

one thing weird is, like one of the mummy mentioned, babies is US started cereal from 4 month onwards but SG pediatrician always suggest to start on the 6th month...
Me i am gonna start solids at 4 months,earlier if she keeps gaining weight.For a girl she is quite big.Next sat then 3 months..i checked weight at clinic wheni went for my flu jab fwe days ago n she is already 6.6kg.No one believes she is almost 3 months..pple think 6 months ..hehhehe
N when we r eating in front of her she stares n sticks out her tongue.She is losing her thrusting tongue reflex coz we offer her slice of apple to suck on when we r eating..nice n cold n she loves it,take away then start to cry.My boys also istarted solids earlier.Her paedtrician say 4 months can start already..no need to wait

Well since that is the case (so many conflicting opinions) then I think we as Mums should just go according to our mother instinct and decide whats best for our child based on our own discretion.
For myself, my Hubby is overweight while Im under..so there is a 50% chance that our baby could be over- or underweight.
i wanna start cos i've check, dear son so far has many 'symptoms' of getting ready for solid food except that he still cant sit very well on his bumbo.. am waiting for him to be able to sit well.. hehe
i also started pin on 4 mths.
my doc gave the green light.
he say he would suggest 5 mths plus to 6 mths but if i want to start letting her try at 4 mths i can go ahead.
Part of the reason why I wanna hold out starting solids is because I want my son to remain my baby for as long as posible.
I feel sad sometimes, thinking that he is growing up and losing more n more of his "baby" ways.
One day when he wants to be independent I think I will break down and cry. :P
i asked my pediatrician and another relief pediatrician, both suggested me to start solid food on dear son when he is 5.5mths old if i do not want to want until 6mth.. they say dont have to start on the dot of 6mth old.. haha...
well, i wish pin will stay this age forever! or maybe grow til like 5 n stop there!!!!!!!!! n i wont grow old toooooo~ maybe til im like 30 n stop tooooo!!
Snowbear yah exactly. I recently just stopped BFding because my menses came and my supply also dropped drastically.
I felt so depressed.
But after my menses stopped, I realised I still have some breast milk! when I expressed! So happy.
by the way, when Alicia had a more established routine at around 6-7mths how do you bring all the food out? Like porridge in thermos, then the fruit and veg puree and snacks (eg. Gerber graduates and Cheerios)??
How to keep the fruits n veg warm without mixing together into porridge cos will turn soggy?
i bring out the porridge in a Tiger lunchbox (comes with a container for rice/porridge and two air-tight tupperwares). Costs me $49.90. fruit, veg puree and snacks i bring out in tupperware or baby cubes. When want to feed then add the stuff into the porridge then feed so wun be soggy.
I posted the pics and description of the lunchbox earlier in another thread. Here it is:
The container for rice/porridge is 0.5L. There's a larger one that can take 1L. I bought the 0.5L one coz it can take 1 ricebowl of porridge easily (tried and tested).
It's very light and easy to use. Compact too. The cover is beige and the containers are PINK.
I bought it at S$49.90 (offer price) at Carrefour. I heard from my friend that it's available at Isetan too.
