    Avocado issue yes. Mummies say NTUC one usually like that, but can eat. Cold storage de more ex, but less likely have the brown strands.

    My hairfall also reduce significantly, coinciding with my decision to wash with cold/lukewarm water instead of steaming hot. And hubby bought sunsilk hairfall reduction shampoo also. Now back to my pre-preg semi-botak qty, but definitely more grey......

    Hmmm how do we tell avocado is ripe or not from inside? I follow the guideline share by mummies here to choose avocado from it appearance. But I'm not too sure did I pick the correct one. The first time I bought I need to cut around the seed to open it up, the second time I bought, my knife cut through the seed into half... hmmm why like that? Avocado noob here

    Ripe avo will hv nice and soft green flesh. Skin is brown. Texture is like butter just taken out from fridge. If unripe, the skin is green and flesh will b quite hard.
    Ntuc selling avos from Mexico, 3 in a pack for 4 + bucks. It comes with pictorial illustration teaching us how to tell the ripeness from skin colour.

    I think someone asked about crawling. This is what my Husband and I did when we saw baby trying very hard to move ard. We basically guided her by counting 1-2-3-4 while we bend her right knee, left knee , right knee left knee. We tried to show her that she needs moves her knees to get going.

    Later on, she begins to tuck her knees to her stomach. This is when we showed her must coordinate with her arms. So we did 1-2-3-4 complete suite with legs and arms. Somehow my girl got it, especially after we adults demonstrate to her how to crawl on the bed. It sent her giggling. Lol

    And now she is moving ard like nobody business. Sometimes she does complete flip cycle (with back thrust fall) and face glide motion to get to her destination.

    Today I noticed that her knees and butt are Super high liao. I am waiting to witness the day she sits up by herself.

    I think KWL Jr v athletic ley!! Bubbles last 2 weeks refused to flip :-/ and she only today then finally eat her toes haha. Wind up being her obsession for today. But before that, she did do a leopard crawl impression during morning tummy time, complete with arm shuffle. And without pointers cos mama dunno how to teach her, seeing as how uncoordinated I myself am XD managed to move forward, but jin lazy. Only if my feet were there for her to push forward with

    But I'm happy to report that she is making headway in mimicking sounds, and discovered that she loves babbling along when I read out loud the novel I borrowed from the library last week!! Definitely more fun than a furby XD though I should be more careful about my book choices, it was a Stephen King novel.. .

    For traditional Chinese I think they usually cook 午鱼 (threadfin) porridge right. But some ppl say don't intro seafood or meat too early or else the taste v strong, either bb reject or love it too much haha. I also not sure. Seems western guidelines vary considerably from Asian diet.

    Mixed the avocado with my tuna mayo to make sandwich for my breakfast. I like avocado milkshake though, maybe it's sweeter than so bland~

    Hmmm my mum never blend the porridge, she cook it longer and it become sticky type. So far emk jr having porridge and skip one bottle of milk.
     
  36. tuna

    Not erxin, quite nice leh I find. I share my previous experience: For each meal, I use a pc of small pc of fish (depends on what you like, usual ones are threadfin, cod fish, salmon), size is a square of approx 2-3 cm). Cook the pc of fish with the porridge, add whatever veg you like (eg carrot, pumpkin, broccoli, baby spinach). When it's cooked, take out the fish and mash it up finely carefully checking for bones, I use fingers to do it so no bones can escape). Stir into porridge and feed.
    I started fish and meat after 8 mths, can't remember why, probably read that baby may not be ready before that eg allergies. When even older, I added tomato and home made ikan bilis powder into porridge to give more flavour.
    Once we start fish, beware of super smelly poo :D

    @redvel - forgot to ask u, how come need to blend since your brown rice already ground into fine powder liao right, or did I remember wrongly?
     
  38. redvel

    redvel Well-Known Member

    Thanks mummies for sharing!

    @snowfern those pics are very useful. Saved. Yay thanks.

    @tuna I also screen shot your post :) Yes you remember right that I make rice powder but I was thinking for fish, no matter how I cook or manual-mesh, can't achieve purée state right? But then like you said, 8mo then start fish then I think no need so puréed by then.

    For now, she still prefers very puréed texture. So even if I intro say baby spinach now, still need to blend?
     
  39. tuna

    tuna Active Member

    I don't know, I've never used a blender for baby food, very traditional one, haha! I remember chopping up the baby spinach before cooking, and I also grated it in the bowl before feeding so it's smoother.
    Actually baby spinach is already very soft after cooking, my feel is don't need to blend.

    verluv Active Member

    Mine too.. still prefer purée state. Dun think she can take a slight bit of grainy feel stuff. She will give me the vomit look. Maybe give her more time to learn ba. I'm still giving butternut squash twice a day. Sometimes I mixed avocado into it. I stopped my porridge coz she doesn't really like it.. coz after mixing it with the butternut squash, it tends to cover the sweetness of the butternut squash. I'm still trying to figure out how to improve on her constipation condition.

    @verluv - would more water help with the constipation? Bananas may help too. Can try.

    Yup I'm trying to make her drink more water now. She doesn't seems to drink a lot of water coz I intro water quite late to her since she is taking Bm exclusively. I'm so desperate till I go n buy glucose powder and mix into the plain water hoping that she will take more water. Hopefully that helps

    Hi verluv for baby what's considered constipation? Like few days don't da bian?

    redvel Well-Known Member

    Btw my gal ate the avo yesterday lunch at ifc. So the article I read is correct. They don't like it once doesn't mean they won't eat it anymore.

    I don't know if I can detect constipation anot because my girl's norm is to shit like every 5 days? And yesterday she shit only after 9 days haha
     
  47. snowfern

    snowfern Well-Known Member

    If I'm not wrong, once on solids should poop at least once every day. But I read some mummies say their PD says once every 1-2 days ok, as long as the poo is not hard like pebbles, or bb like straining..then must adjust diet and drink more water.
     
  48. redvel

    redvel Well-Known Member

    Mine still poo once or twice a day. With solid, her poo texture is rather creamy. Like her purée. Lol.

    I just brought her to supermarket in a ring sling. To n fro at least 20mins walk not counting the shopping time. I'm home and omg my back aches man. My sis has warned me because the sling is one sided so weight is not fairly distributed. With ergo baby don't have such issue. But good thing about this sling I got has light thin material and she doesn't sweat that much.

    @redvel which ergo baby model are you using? I just bought a ergobaby adapt cos mine still small. Thought of getting another ergobaby 360 when she is older.

    I've no idea but I show you the pic. This is passdown. I really didn't do much research on baby wearing. Just trial n error whatever others passed to me.

    For this one, when my gal was little, I rolled a thicker towel n let that be her seat. It works very well.
