    Default Farex

    I am skipping rice cereal entirely. I tried giving some sweet potato and be liked the sensation but didn't eat any of it (DS is 5 months on Sunday). He is not really interested so I'm holding off for a big.

    I'm not keen on doing many purees so will try and mainly do BLW when he is over 6 months. Might do some Rafferty's for when we are out and about though.

    I skipped farex last time around. Her first food was at 5 months and was a banana that she swiped from a rather outraged sister and then she had avocado chunks, steamed pumpkin chunks etc

    Default Farex

    Skipped baby cereal and purees and went straight to finger food as we are doing BLW. Started at around 6 months old.

    I'm starting at 6 months. My DD is 5 and half months now and is starting to show lots of interest in food. I bought Raffertys rice cereal to try first but will pretty much go straight into trying other foods

    DS2 is 13 weeks and milk isn't filling him and showing interest in food so I am not sure about holding off any longer

    If you do BLW you won't need the raffertys ! Just bring a banana or cucumber sticks , sliced avocado or rice cakes - its so easy to feed a BLW baby when you are out and by 7 ish months they eat what you do !

    Just be careful as farex is very low in calories compared to bm or formula so it won't fill him up either - maybe add more milk feeds?

    13 weeks is pretty little - I don't think his gut will be ready

    What signs is he showing that you think might mean he is ready for solids?

    Default Farex

    He already feeds 180mls of formula every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and he keeps watching when we eat very closely, his Dr said as long as it is made runny enough it wouldn't be a problem I was just wondering when everyone else was starting.
