View Full Version : Starting Solids
If you store food in icecubes how many icecubes do they eat at first. Does anyone know about how many tsp/tbs are in an icecube. My ds has been on solids for 1 1/2wks now and is 6mths old today. He has 1 tbs of rice cereal once a day at the moment. How long do you give them rice cereal for? Do you mix your food with the rice cereal? If so how long for? Do you sterlise the icetray or just wash it in hot soapy water? Do you need to rinse it in boiling water? Also what about the bowls and spoons? How do people clean these. How long before introducing 2 feeds a day? And when do you start increasing how much they have? How many feeds should they have a day at this age once solids have started? Has anyone used the other cereal you can get and do you need to? (the one that says from 6mths) You can tell I am a first time mum!! He he
Hey how are you, I am a first time mum also, and you should see some of my questions - people probably wonder what I am doing with a poor baby!!!
Okay I'll try answer some of your questions!! Here goes!
1) I started my litte one on 2 cubes of solids, now he is upto 4, there is about 1 tablespoon per cube.
2) I think you can keep giving them rice cereal until you move them up to adult cereal at about 9 - 12 months (don't quote me on that!) as you go up there are different baby cereals all iron enriched which is important for growing bubbas!
3) If your little one doesn't like the taste of rice cereal you can add pureed fruit to it.
4) I just wash the ice trays in hot soapy water then rinse them then leave them to air dry, same with bowls and spoons.
5) I read somewhere that you do things by two weeks, so one solids a day for 2 weeks, then 2 solid meals a day for 2 weeks, then 3 solid meals a day (does that make sense?)
6) Probably go by how much you little bubba once, some babies have bigger appities(sp?) then others.
Thats all I know sorry... But I hope this all helps!
