Too young for ice cream?

I'm a brand new mommy, and I am set on doing everything as naturally and healthy as possible, and I was soo excited when I read the breast milk ice cream segment!

However, my little girl is four months and three weeks, old and I'm not sure she's old enough for the ice cream... She's taking about 2tbls brown rice a day, and she is such a great eater as far as handling the chewing motions very good. She IS teething, so I know the lollis will be great. But is it to soon for ice cream?

breast milk ice cream
by: Tracy, CBC, CLD (CBI)

Hi

No, she is not too young for "breast milk" ice cream ;-) But not all babies like cold stuff, try her.

Babies who are younger than 4 months should not be given cow's milk or any other solids. But after this period it is okay to slowly introduce all of the popular "culprit foods" unless your baby has been diagnosed with an allergy towards a specific food.

Resent research suggests that the introduction of "culprit allergy foods" into your baby's diet in small amounts from the age of 4 months can prevent allergic reactions later on.

A mother is now encouraged to eat these foods during pregnancy and breastfeeding, unless she herself if allergic to a specific food. Some culprit foods include dairy products, nuts, fish, eggs, wheat, soy and citrus fruits.

These Ice Lollies are Brilliant!!

Yummy!!

I am crazy about this idea! My Twincesses are now 19 months old and since we live in a hot area, they just love snacking on anything cold.

Breastfeeding twins means that I don't usually have much left to express, but I've created my own "recipe" which works well. I express as much as I can after not feeding them from one side for an afternoon and then I add Chamomile tea and some full cream yogurt to make up enough to fill an ice tray.

I've also bought more cheap Gummies (teethers that look like dummies) which don't pull out of the ice as easily as a smooth dummy does.

As soon as I open the freezer door to take out the lollies, they all go crazy lol! Even my 5 yr old son enjoys it, although I don't tell him there is breastmilk in... otherwise he wouldn't eat it. Hehe, sneaky mommy (",)

molds
by: Tracy

Hi!

You can use any ice-cream lolly molds, or you can make your own with ice trays and lolly sticks. You can usually get all sizes and shapes at plastic shops.

immunities of breast milk with lollies

by Tursa

What a great idea! Especially for those kiddos that are done breastfeeding, but could use all the immunities of breast milk when a sickness sets in.
