weetbix Lock Rss

Hi everyone

Up until now my 6.5 month daughter has been having about 2 tabs of prepared rice-cereal (with cooled boiled water) with a couple of tabs of fruit puree for breakfast (an hour or so after her morning breastfeed). We've now come to the end of the packet and I'd been advised to start her on weebix.

i know this sounds silly, but how do you prepare it for babies? I've had it a million times with milk but I want to stick to cooled boiled water for Olivia (not formula or breastmilk). Do you make it in advance like the night before? or just before you need it? 1/2 a weetbix? 1/4? do you smash them into tiny pieces, big pieces or pound it into a powder.

Please help. I need to start tomorrow morning.

Hi Susan

I've been giving Jack weetbix for about a month now and he loves them ! (he is 7 months old today)

This is how i prepare them...

I boil the kettle as soon as i wake up in the morning. Then i break about 1/2 a weetbix up in a bowl and add some boiled water to it. I just add a little at a time till i think it's a nice consistancy (not too gluggy). Then if the kettle hasn't been boiled for very long and it is still hot i just pop it into the freezer for a couple of minutes till it is luke warm. I usually add a couple of tablespoons of either pear or apple to it and i must say it tastes pretty nice !

Usually while i am making this, Jack is happy to have a little play in his high chair. Otherwise you could boil the water the night before and keep it in a jug or something like that and then just warm the water enough in the microwave to make the weetbix soft. I wouldn't prepare the weetbix the night before though...

Hope this makes sense and is helpful to you smile


I went to a 'gut' specialist yesterday and he obviously asked about food and when I said DD had weetbix for breakfast he was very happy. Said it is good for em and that baby food was high is sugar (including rice cereal) and that lead to alot of the feeding problems in later months.

Hope this helps (considering he cost me $200, I might as well share my investment!) LOL grin
