  • Yes try farex first! Interesting reading the comments given to this!


  • No, I would think he would need more sustenance whilst sick. Go for veggies and fruit, a little mixed in with fares to start with….to check for reactions.


  • My sons first foods was pureed apple and beef and vege pureed.


  • Try farex first.


  • following…
    Ive just started farex mixed with breast milk, baby 5 moonths not really swallowing. ive also mixed banana with it. tried a bit of mash potato and apple puree. today we tried weetbix


  • I will be making my own purée ans it will be a mix of pumpkin, carrot, Apple and a form of meat high in iron as my boy is borderline anaemic. It’s good to start with a mix of meat and veg. :) if you do it yourself it’s cheaper, easier and not such a waste!


  • my son tried farax at 4 months and hated it, so we tried puree apple and he loves it, some of his other favourites was sweet potatoe and a variety of veges mixed together :)


  • yogurt mince meats grated cheese toast .


  • there are some good comments here


  • fruits and yogurt are good or mashed veg’s


  • fruits are the best – pear I think is the easiest to digest and has no issues with causing constipation


  • How did you go with their first solid food?


  • i hope all is well


  • how did you end up going?


  • I started mostly with pureed fruits with mine.
