Alternatives to rice cereal as well as apple/pear in first weeks on solids Rss

My 6 1/2 month old hates pureed apple and pear, doesn't think rice cereal is great,but will eat it begrudgingly. She loves pumpkin, but I can't give her this for breakfast! Many commercial foods have whole milk powder and I believe your not meant to give milk/products to them muntil 12months. Does anyone have any ideas please! p.s. she is breastfed.

Hi there,

I've been really lucky, cause my little boy has eaten everything I have given him, though his favourite so far has got to be banana. Only problem with it, is that it clogs him up a I try & give it to him sparingly.

Have you thought about maybe trying yoghurt? I know there are baby ones out there for 6months & up & apparently natural full fat yoghurts are good too. Perhaps give that a go???

Just a thought. Good luck & let us know how you go.

Hi Ana,

I dont know if you already do this but have you tried mixing a bit of breast milk in with the apple or pear? Just helps to have a bit of a familiar taste there.

I'm pretty lucky at the moment cause Mitch loves nearly everything we give him.

If you try the banana & are worried that it may clog him up just introduce broccoli & mix it with the pumpkin at night. i find that if i give Mitch Broccoli on the days that he has banana they seem to conteract one another with there affects!

Hope this helps a little - like i said you may already be doing this.....

Good luck!

I've mentioned this before in posts, but I had a really good experience with "Bellamy's Organic Porridge" - Hugo hated farex etc - but loves this - I mix it each morning - a heaped teaspoon of dry porridge, 2 heaped teaspoons of fruit puree, a blob of yoghurt, and some cool boiled water to thin...It is in a blue and white box, only available from Woolies/Safeway....good luck
