    Default How do you prepare weetbix?

    Silly question, but I bf and I don't express, just wondering if I can make weetbix for my 7mo with cow's milk - or should I use boiled water?

    Personally I would use mostly boiled water with a dash of cows milk.

    Can I ask why you can't express though? You wouldn't need much, could you just express a little off by hand before bubs next feed?

    I would crush the weetbix superfine, then put cows milk in it, sometimes add a bit of fruit puree for flavour.. and microwave it until it's soft and warm..

    I use cows milk. I figure it's introducing it to her.

    Cows milk is fine to use. I used cows milk from 6 months with weetbix. I used the kids weetbix though because the salt content in regular weetbix is a bit too high.
