    Hi mummies,
    What else can we cook for our toothless baby beside porridge? I am giving him ABC pasta, porridge, white bread, teething biscuit+milk and his regular milk. I am quite bored with these liao, any other things I can give him. No teeth, so he can't chew... Hai

    hi my boy just turn 8mth and his first tooth cut thru. he can still not chew properly cos the teeth cut thru but still in the gums. only the tip can be felt.

    yes, tried all even more veggies. But I am so bored cooking jap pearl rice and ABC pasta liao. Thinking of other alternatives. I grind apples and sometimes avocado for him. Tao hua is new to me... I can try. Keke..

    Ya lor, boh gay!

    The advantage is when he fell, no tooth to cut his lips, no tooth will break or clip

    Congras, at last got tooth liao.

    Pregnant again and becomes abit haywired hah? I dun go in feel u know, when he smiles can see liao mah. Maybe didn't grow out early also lucky, cos once when he was crawling, he slipped and fell face down. Bled from the small flesh connecting the upper lip and upper gum. Bled like siao you know! ALOT man! I rushed home and so scared man. If got teeth, think more painful and with ulcers liao.

    But my 11th month old son walks liao... go to my friendster, I inserted a video clip!

    Ya, I don't deny this pregnancy make me a bit haywired.... no energy, no appetite.... puke like mad.... don't like it like the first one leh....

    It really depends on the babies individually when they will start having their teeth. I do have a friend whose little boy started teething at 3 mth and by the time he reaches 7 mths, there's already 4 teeth growing out. Very cute sight.

    As for babies who learn to turn, my boy turned at 3 mths plus. I gave him lots of tummy time and when he start fussing, I will pacify him a little and place him back on his back for his turning practice. Ha ha....

    Hi Serene,
    My girl's first 2 teeth started growing after she was 1. She had fever and rashes. Now she is 14 months and the teeth on the upper jaw are just starting to show a little. Her milk teeth are really slow to grow and her fever has been like a roller coaster of late.

    Recently I found that my 4mths old girl's side teeth seems to be coming out (can see abt 2-3 white lumps - wic looks like teeth- each side) but there's no sign of the 2 front teeth growing. Is this normal??

    Recently, she has been dripping more saliver den usual & she seems quite irritated, keep biting her fingers. Are these signs of teething?
    How to watch out for signs that her teeth really coming out??

    And also, my girl till now, dunno how to turn but can crawl already..Is this normal as well??

    Hee, im also a 1st time mummy, dont really know what to look out for[​IMG] Very gan jiong especially cuz her development seems to be all jumble up!

    Hi ndra,
    I'm not too worried if her milk teeth comes out slow. Then it will drop later.

    Some kids have high fever and drool a lot when they are teething. My son had to wear a bib when he was teething or his shirt will be with saliva. But he didn't have much fever as compared to my girl. My girl had fever (38 degrees) for a week and lost appetite until she had not much strength for anything.

    My dd is 13mth old and just got her first tooth peeking out from her gums.

    For her lunch/dinner I cook porridge for her using fish, pork or beef. PD say cannot just let her drink soup but must also feed her with the meat. Since she is almost toothless, I will blend the meat when it gets cook before giving to her.

    Fruits, she loves banana and avocado. Just mash with fork and give it to her.

    Teething sounds scary... By the way, I've bought a teething gel (dentinox or something) for my gal. Did anyone tried applying on bb?? Izzit effective?? She doesnt seem to like it. Instead, she's more interested in biting my finger to smooth her gums[​IMG]
    My gal is 4m plus liao, should i introduce solid food?

    You can introduce Nestle rice cereal when she seems to be always hungry. Make it a little more diluted with breast milk or formula. Start her first with a teaspoon of cereal. If she is not ready, hold on and try again when she is 5 or 6 months old.

    Hi Janet,

    Some start to feed their bb at ard 4 and you start at 5 mths... How to gauge huh..? My bb going 4 mths next 9th next month....want to get myself prepared.. Is there symtom for teething.... Thax[​IMG]
  27. missylan

    missylan Active Member

    My son starts those rice cereal ard 5th mth and porridge at 6th mth old. I got advice fr PD that it is best to breastfeed till 6th mth and not to start that solid that early due to the little young stomach etc.

    If your child gets hungry very fast though the feeding is already very often, try giving cereal. This will make their stomach fuller.

    Teething, mine is diarrhea and a little feverish but not cranky. Some all of the above + drooling+using tongue to rub against gums. Some babies no symptoms at all.

    Yasmin is 11 mths soon and also no tooth yet. We felt a little bump on her gum, but no tooth has cut yet. My wife is making a variety of rice porridge for her: carrot and potatoes, spinach and fish, chicken and pumpkin, lily bulb and honeyed date(when Yasmin had cough, really helped), etc. She just pound the veg and meat until mashed and add to the porridge. We also soak ikan bilis and dry them in the oven then grind it to powder and add to porridge.

    You may also try making stock from fish, or chicken, or frogs even then make rice porridge with it for the taste.

    Yasmin prefers very thick porridge, if it's a bit watery, she refuses to eat. I bought her some rusk, but after tasting one myself and found it too sweet, we decided not giving her any. We also give her some apples or pears everyday. Baby look so cute when they hold a piece of fruit in their hands then suck on it.

    A friend recommended TEETHA powder to clam the baby when she is cranky from teething pains.

    1 egg white+50ml of milk steam low fire for 5mins.

    my boy is now 6mths 2nd tooth coming out.my first ger also got teeth when she's 6mth old.

    I think it various from bb to bb. so long their health is okay i guess should be ok.

    Just to check, my gal also starts to drool.. and bites her fingers.. think these are the signs of teething... any idea when the tooth will pop?

    my girl started drooling when she was 3 month, but her first tooth was cut when she was 12 months, so don't worry. The gum is usually swollen and a little puffy, when you touch it, your babe could scream from the pain

    my girl got her first tooth when she was 6mths old. Now she is 10mths old but still one lonely tooth only. I thought baby's teeth often grow in twos... Any mummy has similar experience to share?
  52. guresu

    guresu New Member

    My baby is 10mths old now, she got her 1st tooth when she was 5mths plus. Then the 2nd tooth when she was abt 7mths old. Then recently her upper teeth juz came out.

    Starz17, i think different child got different teeth growing timing. I got a friend, her son got his 1st tooth when he was 13th mth old, then the 2nd tooth when he was 18 mths old.
  53. starz17

    starz17 Member

    hi Guresuwon,

    thanks for sharing! i got abit worried bcos my girl refused to switch to a follow-on formula. i thot she may be lacking in calcium... her PD checked and confirmed she is perfectly healthy. hmmm wonder how long more i will have to wait...
  54. guresu

    guresu New Member

    Hi Starz17,

    Why your ger refused to switch to formula milk? Itiz be'cos u use to breast feed her? My ger also the same. I tried to feed her Enfa formula milk, but she rejected when she was juz 1mth old. Cos i was trying to mix between breast feeding and formula milk. End up, i think the moment she drink it, she spit it out. Sighs.. So til now she been on TBF lor.. Her fourth tooth coming out oredi on the top, and she's turning to 11mths in a few more days. I think since ur Doctor said she was perfectly healthy, then i guess u dun have to worry too much. Cos is juz the matter of time. For my ger, since she got her teeth growing out, at times it can be quite painful to breast feed her. Sighs..
  55. starz17

    starz17 Member


    wow keep up the gd work! it must have been tiring to TBF your girl! i'm just plain lazy. my girl was breastfed for less than a mth. she was already on formula milk at the hospital as she was underweight at birth. PD said she has to be on partial formula to bring up her weight.

    i had tried mixing just half a scoop of the follow-on but she seemed to be able to detect the difference and reject the whole bottle. immediately i made another bottle with infant formula and she would finish everything. had tried other brands of follow-on but in vain. she has been on similac since birth. her PD said its ok to take infant formula till 1 yr old so i stopped trying. she will be 1 yr old in another mth's time. hopefully this time round she can switch to gain iq successfully!

    if your girl is eating well, i think on TBF should be fine. i understand that follow-on formula contains higher calcium and iron. so just try to give her more of these which i have been doing. [​IMG]

    my ds only had his first tooth ~ 14 mth...at 18 mths his molars than start showing...as such his chewing development is a little late (i.e. his food has to be softer and cut smaller than usual)...other than this he is developing well in his speech, i.e. have at least 80 words in his vocabulary now

    My boy is 12 months now and he has 6 teeth. His teeth starts to pop out when he's 7 months old. Heard that teeth that pops out later will be stronger, any truth to that?
