babe, my ans are in RED =)
1) slowly replacing her milk feed with full cereal. eg; she is drinking 150ml milk so use 40ml to dilute w cereal feed n then finish up e rest o e 110ml milk. now trying to feed a full bowl o 8 scoops increasing 1 scoop each ddae. as o ytd is 6 scoops. shld i dilute e cereal e fm ? or just warm water?
2) continued from above e reason i ask about using water w cereal or fm w cereal is a) worried is too heaty to hve fm + cereal ????? b) if i just diulte e water scare its not filling enuff for her????
for qns 1 & 2, i used to dilute cereal with FM but after sometime, dear son rejected it so now i use water. just warm water. i think it's actually up to you, some mummies even use baby fruit juice =)
3) she has slight prob in pooing as in she dont poo frequently . she pooed onced every 2 daes n sometimes she oni stained e diaper n sometimes she will poo twice a dae. i worried in e long run she may hve trouble pooing ????? is it due to e heatiness or her stomach cant digest brown rice cereal????
sometimes dear son also lik that. mostly he will poo every 2 day. since she is alrdy started semi solid food, you should also give her plenty of water. if constipation is too serious, can give her prune puree diluted fruit juice =)
4) i do feed her water in between her feeds but hw much water a dae is enuff??? 20-50ml???
usually dear son drinks 100-300ml per day,. but this is for now. when he just started cereal, he drank around 40-50ml. slowly increase =)
5) friends has been asking me to intro fruite like apples n all e berries upon hearing that she has trouble pooing but another friend say to add veg w cereal 1st instd o introducing fruits???? i,m so confused who is right???
i read from a book, babies below 1yo should avoid strawberries n raspberries. as for fruits, you can intro her peach or prune puree. when dear son still eat puree last time, i will get him prune puree when he has constipation. helps alot. morning eat, evening poo! and poo ALOT for the next 2-3 days! haha! but now he hates puree so i give him prune juice..
6) what shld i intro next ???? veg in her cereal??? hw do i do that??? like if i want add carrots w cereal ok?????
babe, carrot and banana will cause constipation. my pediatrician always asks me to avoid these 2 food whenever dear son has constipation. you can let her try pumpkin puree =)
