Weetbix Lock Rss

My DS is 6, nearly 7 months. l gave him weetbix this morning with formula and he liked it. Is it ok to give weetbix at this age?
I give my daughter weetbix and she is the same age as your DS she loves it and it actually has less sugar in it than the baby cereals and porridges anyway.

Thanks, yes My DS doesn't like the baby rice cereal, so will give weetbix from now on.
I'd go with the kids weetbix, only because the ingredients are more tailored to little ones digestion.

DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months

Definitely. I've been told that from 6 months is ok.

Hi!

Why does every person get told a different thing- it is so confusing. My son hates farex and i thought that he would enjoy weet bix. Asked the health care nurse when I can give him weet bix. She said definately not before 12 months. Reason being that wheat is far too hard for baby to digest and weet bix have an extremely high concentration of wheat. However I know lots of people that gave there baby weet bix as a first brekkie.

I was told the same thing but I have been reading Annabel Karmen's Baby and Toddler Meal Planner and she says its ok. I too have been giving my 7 month old the kids weetbix and so far have not encountered any probs.
Have you guys found the weet bix causing any constipation? We will be starting dd on solids soon, and don't want to give her Farex as i've heard it's bad for constipation.
Thanks
Does weetbix cause constipation??? Also, my bub is breastfed so how do you choose a formula to go with the cereal?

my 8 month old got consitpated on Farex but seems fine on weetbix. He is breastfed and dairy intolerant/alergic? and i just make his weetbix with water. I break up half a weetbix for him, cover it in boiling water and make it very smooth and a bit runny by adding some cold water, usually i add fruit. Kiwifruit is good for constipation, as are canned peaches, and these go well with weetbix.

I know how you feel Nic, your not the only 1 confused, CHN drives me nuts & I told her (well the student that was there learning). The student CHN asked if I was ok with everything they said to me & I said no - confused...basically I had it out with them as allergies within family & CHN had nerve to say to me that she feels ds is sheltered! B**CH
I have been told different things from CHN, GP x 2, Specialist, then of course theres the grandparents & you have your own point of view on it all aswell...just sooooo much fun

Hi

i give my 8month old weetbix with mashed banana for breky and she loves it!
