Introducing Solids

Fabienne - November 22

Hi guys :) ok, I went to the pedriatrician and it's time to introduce the solid food. He said to introduce one kind of cereal, feed him that for 3 days (to see if there's any allergies) then introduce another etc. Does that sound right to you? I'm asking because I'm not sure I got it... I asked twice and was embarrassed to ask a third time *blush* Anyway...thanks for confirming or correcting ! Oh, by the way, Matthew has now two teeth out !

You want to give them a few days on each so just in case they have an allergic reaction, you are able to determine from what food. Good luck. It is so exciting to watch them explore new tastes and textures :-)

My doc said to start with rice cereal because it's the least likely to cause allergic reactions. It also has no taste, in my opinion.

I follow the Public Health Guide: For 6-9 months: Breastfeed on demand or give 3-5 bottle formula feedings every 24 hours. Introduce rice /barley cereal. Start with 2-3 teaspoons, then increase to 4 table spoons twice daily. Offer pureed cooked vegetables and later (8-9 months old) mashed cooked vegatables of 4-6 tablespoons daily. Offer pureed cooked fruits of 6-7 tablepsoons daily. May give egg yolk hard cooked and softened with water, meat, fish, chicken, tofu, well cooked beans of 1-3 tablespoons daily. --------------For my 8 month old, I replaced two bottle feedings with cereal. By noon I give him cereal with fruit and in the evening I give him cereal with a vegetable. The meats I'm holding off till 9 months.------------------------- From 9-12 months: formula is 3-4 feedings every 24hrs or b___stfeed on demand. Cereal(oatmeal, corn, wheat can now be introdced also) of 8-10 tablespoons daily. You give mashed vegatebles 6-10 tablespoons daily. Cooked pureed fruits 6-10 tablespoons daily. Water to drink up to 4oz daily. Cheese, egg yolk hard cooked, yogurt not less than 3.5 % fat, chopped beef, chicken, fish, tofu, beans give 3-4 tablespoons daily. NO honey, fresh citrus fruits, egg white, strawberries, kiwi, peanuts in the first year. When introducing cereal or fruit or vegetable wait for three days to looks for signs of allergic reaction to know if you should continue. I hope this extra information helped in any way.

I'd like to think I'm being helpful and I get very excited to share what I have. No. I did not get this info from the internet. It was a sheet given to me by my nurse. On other issues I may have info from university or sometimes I look for info from the internet to understand things better. I get the hint to be brief next time. I'll try.
