Baby Skye 2nd (and onwards) solid food...
When baby Skye turned 6 mths, this mummy thought that its gonna be easy peasy....
Just "copy and paste" from my old blog post on what baby Si did when she just started her solid food!
#throwback baby Si 2nd solid food
#throwback baby Si 3rd n 4th solid food
But ended up, this mummy was too lazy to purposely make a trip to the supermarket just to get the same veg/fruit as baby Si's... So I just use "whatever I could find in the fridge at that moment in time"!!!
(This is what happens when u have 2 kiddos- just make do!!!)
(Plz skip this section as its intended for my reference)
1st solid food: brown rice cereal (click here if u missed baby Skye 1st solid food)
2nd: banana (I still remember the first word baby Si said was NANA referring to BANANA and not SIENNA....as she liked bananas a lot, just like daddy ... So, every now and then, Daddy will call Sienna as "NANA BANANA!!!")
3nd: rice cereal
4th: apple (didn't like it at first coz of the sour taste perhaps... But then gobbled all up)
5th: anchovies (yeah the diagram says to serve fish at 10 mths, yeah yeah yeah - dont shoot me!!! so I cheated coz the rice cereal I bought came with anchovies :p )
6th: pumpkin (liked)
23rd: green beans
25th: French beans
31st: sesame seeds
(P/s: I stopped commenting after the 6th food as with all babies, their tastebuds have not fully develop yet thus they do not have much preference or reactions except for extreme tasting food like lemons, bittergourd, etc) <--- have not tried those yet
so far, baby Skye has been gobbling down every thing I feed him...he is a BIG EATER!!! Not picky either...but then again, babies will start being picky once their tastebuds are fully develop and once they tasted mcd's...LOLs...
Finger food: rice, baby rusks biscuit, yogurt melts, banana, whole wheat bread, egg whites, grapes, orange
But I do follow CLOSELY this helpful diagram which I used for baby Si as well...(see pic below)
It guides me on what food to introduce when...
And also helpful in listing down all different types of food so this mummy don't have to crack my head!
I just need to cross off those that I have used...
That way baby Skye gets all nutrients from different varieties :)
I have a few more food items to check off from this list...but baby Skye is turning 1 soon so this diagram is NO LONGER NEEDED!!! He is free to eat "anything"...
Oh yeah I do mix n match the food I have introduced (make porridge) and will introduce a new food into baby Skye's porridge ... Do follow the 4-day rule period and look out for food allergy :)
Happy cooking and have fun to all new mummies out there!!!
