One Mum's Story

From Nursing to Solids

When Evan started eating “real” food at 6 months we started off with the basics. Rice Cereal, Earths Best Organic Whole Grain Rice Cereal, was the first thing we tried. We gave it to him on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Then Sunday morning and then waited 3 days to make sure he didn’t get stopped up or anything. Once we knew everything was OK in that department we switched to every day. But as a working mum I wanted to be involved, this was a huge step since he’s been soley breastfed since birth (more on that later). Since I work he of course gets a bottle but still my milk because I pump at work (more on that later too). So we started with Dinner. The three of us ate together every night and we still do, it’sgreat. But then I had to let go and add in a second meal. It went better than expected. He loves his food and now has breakfast, lunch and dinner. And I’m only around for dinner but we make it fun, he helps in the kitchen by hanging out with me and snacking on his Happy Baby Organic Puffs.

He’s now on a great schedule that consists of milk at 6:30 am, breakfast of Oatmeal, Earths Best Organic Oatmeal mixed with the fruit that I’ve made for the week (around 8 am), milk around 10:30. Lunch is something savory mixed with Oatmeal (noon-ish), followed by another bottle of milk around 3 pm before I get home for dinner (another savory dish with oatmeal). The last treat of the day is milk from mummy before bed at 8:30 pm. It’s a full day of yummy treats. We have snacks in there too of course, Yo Baby Yogurts are a fav right now, Banana is his favorite. Although he hasn’t turned anything down yet.
