When breastfeeding what is the progression of solids? I know to wait two days between new foods and breastfeed first then offer food. My daughter is 6 months old and I have just started one meal a day of farex and carrot. She seems to want food all day!

  • I used raising children network for support with this and my health nurse

  • I think it was around that time. I used to go buy the hospitals blue book and saw the childhood nurse regularly so I was a bit of a robot when it came to schedules !

  • There’s some great information on parenting service sites like Karitane

  • how did it turn out?

  • I think pureed pear is a good option. Doesn’t seen to be any particular progression, each to their own really.

  • How did she end up going with her food?

  • I would just be guided by bub. She’ll tell you everything you need to know.

  • Good advice below – great the you little one eats well.

  • It sounds like she will be a good eater, I would still make sure you offer milk first.

  • Mixture or vegies or fruit

  • Websites like this one can offer some helpful tips and guidelines when it comes to the progression of solids..

  • Blend veggies up. Can’t go wrong With them

  • Mashed veggies is great :P

  • Good luck make sure you use variety of different things bubs don’t like eating the “same old” & Be Creative :-)

  • I would breastfeed my little man at about 6am then at 8am he would have farex cereal then breastfeeds whenever he wanted, then lunch would be yoghurt and piece of fruit and dinner I would have already frozen diced chicken & veggies or beef, steak, pork, fish with veggies etc, or I freshly prepare and cook savory mince with small diced veggies ;-)
