INTRODUCING SOLID FOOD
I am a mother of two and I am used to exclusive breastfeeding for six months without solid food.
I did it for my first child and I introduced baby food after 6months and she cooperated very well but my second baby on introducing baby food after 6months throws up immediately after feeding and this baby always jumps up at anything called food since her 4th month, in fact I wanted to start giving her baby food since I noticed this but my mum adviced that i wait til she is 6months.
What can I do? Please your urgent reply will be appreciated
7 1/2 month old starting solids
Over the last month, we have been introducing solids to our now 7 1/2 month old baby. He has been a pooper once every 7-10 days. I understand this is normal, but how long should it take to become more often as solids are introduced? He is now still pooping only once every 4-7 days.
Starting solids how much is too much?
My daughter is 5 and half months old, and appears to be hollow!
I started her on solids recently, as she was getting very 'shouty' whenever we were eating (usually her sign of being hungry!), so I tried offering her a little pureed apple.
She scarfed down an entire apple's worth in a day, which was a bit of a surprise to me, as I thought they didn't eat much the first time.
Although I am spoon feeding her, I just put the spoon near her mouth, and she does the rest herself, so am pretty sure that she was good n' ready for solids.
I have introduced a little porridge (made with water) as well, but she only likes that with lots of apple, and as I am supposed to wait a few days before introducing new stuff, that is all I am giving her at the moment (apart from breast milk, obviously!).
She still breastfeeds every hour and a half during the day, but has started to get pretty shouty about wanting the apple!
I am only feeding her solids twice a day, but she is making it pretty clear that she wants more. I feed her until she signals she has had enough, but am concerned that she is eating too much.
I am going to start offering vegetables in a few days (all that apple can't be good, surely?!?), but should I be restricting her to a certain amount, or should I just let her tell me when she is full?
At the moment, it seems like every nappy is a dirty nappy, which makes me think that she is eating too much, but then, maybe her system is just getting used to the food.
