So dont worry.. He's still safe!! *giggles*
we mummies r strange..when baby is small must be chubby..then when baby starts to get older we worry they will become fat kids..hehhehe
i dddink we will nebber really stop worrying for our kids until the day we close our eyes~~~lols~~~
i start my boy with cereal at 5mths old. now he is about 14mths. i feed him porridge at 6mths old with threadfish. just mince the fish n put into the porridge when it is almost done. also intro egg yolk to him. at first i feed him just 2 spoons of porridge n increase the amt gradually. at 10mths old i cook porridge with meat broth (normally prepare the broth when i cook soup for the family and store in fridge for few days). my mum said dont't give him meat till 1yrs.
his porridge menu
fish + butternut squash
fish + baby carrot
fish + spinach
fish + egg (after 1yrs), egg yolk only before 1yrs
4am - milk
8am - milk
11am - porridge
1.30pm - milk
4pm - milk
6pm - porridge
8pm - milk
i feed him at 4am as i dont't want him wake up at 5am++. if he wake up 5++, he dont't want to sleep anymore. my boy kinda sleep early (8-9pm) and wake up 7-7.30am. napping at 9.30-10.30am and 2-3pm. (short nap, about 1-1.5hrs)
he dont't consumpt much milk (about 600ml per day) but he like porridge (2 soup bowl daily), bread n biscuit in between feeding.
youkiko, y dont you increase to 3 meals since he likes porridge n dont drink much milk? just curious hehe
his sleep shcedule looks very similar to my girl hehe. she sleeps 830pm-930pm n wake up around 8-9am.. but then she will wkae up once for milk around 530-630am then after that dont know y keep waking up for milk every 1-1.5hrs till her wake up time~so its like she will be drinking at 530am, 7am, 8am then wake up...keep waking up to suckle. maybe for comfort though she does clear the breast.. luckily we kind of co sleep n thus not that tiring for me..

not youkiko but i started my girl with yolk around 10th month iirc. i was a little worried botu egg allergy. though egg yolk is not really an allergen(the white is), no matter how you handle the yolk, there sure will be a little white accompanied with it thus i paranoid. but then by right it should be safe for babies after 6mths(as what japanese says)
apollo mummy - i found this thread of yours which you started it on the day Louis was born! hee
Anyway, tomorrow Louis will be 6mth old!! *clap clap*.. I saw you enquirying about giving egg yolk. My mother in law will be giving him egg yolk tomorrow.. Did you gave your boy egg yolk at 6th month?
How do you all give egg? as in halfboiled egg and mix with cereal or hardboil egg and smashed?
when cooking egg for babies, best to make sure its totally cooked.. so hard boil egg is the way to go. i would suggest giving hard boiled egg yolk first. but since its a new food, maybe just give him a teaspoon or so. test for allergy first.. dont give him too much.
there are lots of ways to use egg yolk. like what apollo mummy has mentioned, use it to make french toast(best to wait till baby around 9-10mths to introduce bread due to wheat allergy), seperate the yolk and stir into porridge to cook together, or just sprinkle cooked egg yolk n stir into already cooked porridge or rice.
during my gal's jab, i was told to start feeding baby egg yolk when she's 1 year old and see wether she got any reaction like rash, swollen...etc.
i think its too early to feed baby egg when she/he 6mth old..
it's better to give fruit mix with rice cereal for a start.
I read that avocado is the best 1st food.
for my girl, i started with Frissocream then i also try the nestle rice cereal...then now i'm giving her Si Sen Brown Rice... mostly i mix the brown rice with mash carrot, or mash apple, or mash banana.
I started feeding my boy common allergenic food only when he was about 12 months old or older:
- egg yolk
- cow's milk
He developed an instant rash around his mouth when trying a bit of tofu. This also explains his persistent eczema rash since I have been eating soy and breastfeeding him. We stopped eating soy and his eczema is cleared up.
Now, we are even more careful about introducing allergenic food to him because some allergy reactions could be very serious or even fatal. It is worth waiting a few months or 1 year to let his body build up immunity first.

What paeds and nutritionists recommend is that if any family members have an allergy to a particular food, it is best to wait till your baby is above 1 yo before introducing that food item.
My hubby is allergic to quinoa so I'm only going to introduce it when Eva is above 1 yo.
thanks mummies. my mother in law was very enthu about feeding him egg since he was 4 month old (apparently adviced by some nurse in polyclinic... damn).. I held her back... and now he has just turned 6mth, she starts giving . sigh.. really hard to stop old folks. But louis seems okay so far. So he should be okay...
so for the 4days waiting period. do you give the same food for the next 4days, or just give 1day and wait 4days?
Ya very weird rite? Anyway really hard to tell her things, very defensive type. But somehow she took care of Louis well... So I cannot say much.
Ytd I tried discussing with her to increase Louis cereal.. She immediately say she has increased to 2Teaspoon oredi with yolk. she asked me dont go and listen to others.. See my own son's cue. (then why she also listen about the egg) And he slept from 1-4pm..giving her rest time so she very happy. Then I tried to ask her make adjustment to the timing.. Cos Louis is still waking up at 2.30am!!!!! I worked whole day go home gotta take care of him and also nite wee hours. I only sleep 3-4hrs everyday that I wanna die oredi. So when she tell me she very happy he slept 3hrs very happy she can rest and do other things. sigh.. I also wanna rest
Can suggest how to make timing adjustment? Or should increase cereal qty? She told me Louis vomit out some milk during the next feed. So he has oredi reached his limit? I also tried giving him 1tbsp of cereal at 7pm feed plus his milk.. He went drowsy and slept at 7.30pm. But guess what.. He wakes up at 8pm wide awake.. And wouldn't sleep till 9.30pm. we dreamfeed him at 11pm... Despite all the tanking up.. He still wakes up at 2.30pm just now!!! No matter how I made him sleep he kept wailing. I gave him what he wants Cos fun wanna disturb hubby and now he zzz.
what should I do? Just accept the fact that he is waking up 2.30pm and 5.30pm. when he was younger,he can still go back to sleep and wake up at 5am for 1st feed.. sigh .. Ok maybe growth spurt -- AGAIN. 6mths rite? Anyway to me he us like forever growth spurt
one more thing to add. mother in law still think that fm will last him longer.. I just cannot convince her ITS THE SAME!!! Every time before go home she will tell me next feed time. And will add.. Thus round She gave him fm so will last longer......... I buay tahan and tell her it's more or less the same! She knows all! Hard to convince
sigh .. Any s
