<font color="ff0000">ow_mummy</font>,
can share your bb's feeding schedule pls?
cos i'm wondering when to introduce semi-solids, i.e. do i give her 1 feed of semi-solids a day or? and do we give milk first, then eat cereals?

my bb is a very small-eater, so i dunno if after drinking milk, she has any appetite left for the cereals, and vice versa...

taka fair
how was taka fair? any good buys?

I have introduced Heinz first rice cereal, but my friend recommend bellamy's, they have the 4 months+ type, very is very hard to find as most baby food on the market are 6 months+. It is also organic.

Hi mummies, nice to meet you all today.

Has everyone collected whatever they need from me?
All received your Doidy cups??

Was happy with my buys today. Finally got my stroller arch. More of the Evenflo snack/food bowls and The First Years take n toss spoons too. C&amp;G (cheap &amp; good). Soooo tempted by the Boon squirt spoon that alfafa bought but successfully resisted.


New Member
sh...brown rice cereal is more nutritious than white rice cereal, however for a baby who to start weaning on solids, it's best to give white rice first...start them on the most plain and simple before advancing to brown rice. i also believe brown rice has a much stronger taste than white rice..


heh.. i also saw the Boon spoon.. was very tempted to get, but didn't. Not sure why actually.. think I wasnt in the mood to shop! *gasp*

too tired from work i think... i thought i need retail therapy?!?

how do u want to collect your stuff?

can we meet at Vivo on Sunday pm to pass you your sleep sheep?


New Member

like what ow_mummy said, the cereal should not be given on the 1st and last meal of the day. first time, let bb eat during 2nd/3rd feed of the day (say 11am-1pm) i'm giving fm, so for a start, let the bb try one spoon of fm mix with warm water w one spoon of rice cereal. first few times the mix should not be too thick cos bb will not be used to it, so can't swallow. in between feeds, can feed little spoonfuls of water to bb also (cereal might cause constipation and also the water will let bb eat better, cos might be too dry and thick for their throat). after the feed, bb should be still hungry, u can add on a milk feed (maybe 100ml or a little more, depends on how hungry bb is)...

once bb starts to get used to cereal, u can start adding spoonfuls of fm and rice cereal..now andrea's taking rice cereal midday and also evening (sort of like when we have our lunch and dinner)..

how thick the mix is depends on bb's preference, but it should get thicker gradually...if bb's tongue keeps pushing the food out, one way u can do it put the spoon right into her mouth, leave it there a while, she will suck the spoon and will then swallow the feed...

hope it helps..

ow_mummy, where did u get the sleep sheep?

<font color="ff0000">KP</font>
yup, 2 turtles and 1 ladybug and 1 headband... will collect from your maid if u not home..

<font color="ff0000">ow_mummy and jamgirl</font>
thanks for your tips on feeding baby...
i can't wait to let her try cereal and puree... i work very near tanglin mall, so i'm always checking out the baby food selection at marketplace and this other organic shop called brown rice paradise, the bottled purees look yummy, but quite exp and i dunno if its good to give baby bottled food?
of cos fresh is better i supposed?

currently my baby's schedule is:

7am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, 11pm (dream feed) - (+/- 30mins)

so i shld probably consider replacing the 10am and 6pm feed with some cereals right?


But think bb will not be eating purees for that many months. If u notice some purees are for 4 to 6 mths. Fr what i remember, seems like as bb goes into 7 or 8 mths, the texture don't need to be so fine. This means ur Boon spoon cannot use for long. Plus soon, u will start to give porridge etc.

Mummies, check out this link. http://www.thechinesesouplady.com/


No cheap at taka fair. For the brightstars around we go $299 is no discount at all. I can get it cheaper. I always tell my hubby it's baby fair not sales ley....so no cheap.

powerball, i agree with your CL. The boon spoon can use for awhile only. They will take semi solid soon. Actually by 7mths they are already interested to take biscuit and porridge.


New Member
oshgosh_baby, start with 1 feed first, give at 10am

one-two weeks later, if bb is ok with cereal, then you proceed with 2 feeds a day and increasing the amount also


hello mummies!!!

so where is good to go for shopping??
TAKA's BABY FAIR not worth going ah?? hmmm

pravina (pravina), add in:
Robinson having sales, but nt for bb too.

<u>Feeding at 4-6mths:</u>

I started feeding my 1st boy when he was abt 7mths. I make sure he can sit up arite with support and head is steady first b4 intro solid food. (Dont want him to get choke)

Usually when they 1st start eating, they only take less then 1 mouth. Sometimes they might even throw out.

It takes a few time to try intro the 1st solid food b4 he really eat.

If you happen to start Nestle cereal, dont start with Organic later. Cos Organic food no taste. Eitherwise do the other way round: Organic then normal cereals.

Friso cereals is the sweetest of all. I use it as the last resort when they are more choosy abt cerals then.
