We are planning to start weaning in the next week or two and I'm so happy you have started this thread! My question is: what is the best time of day to give the baby rice at first? I've heard it recommended to give in the evening so she sleeps well (although she sleeps pretty well already), and I've also heard to give in the morning in case it upsets her tummy or something. Which "meal" did you give first? I figured we'll do a week or so of baby rice or possibly oatmeal and then move on to 2 meals - one of rice/oatmeal and one of veggie/fruit, but I don't know what time of day to do these meals. Also, I work 3 days/week, so I'm trying to think what might be easiest for the woman who watches her those days. Thanks!

I dont think baby rice will help your lo to sleep longer at night, it definately hasnt helped my lo. We started with baby rice in the mornings, then switched that to porridge which he likes better. We give it to himabout an hour after his first bottle, so anywhere between 8.30 and 10, depending on when he naps. We then added a veg puree in for dinner about 4-5pm. hth x

I'm EXACTLY the same, I'm usually 'just testing to see if it's not too hot'

I am useless!!


As for breakfast u can go for baby porridge (there r lots of options at the babies section which is gluten/wheat free) or fruits purees with/without baby rice. Bananas r good for breakfast.

As for dropping milk feeds, she's not suppose to drop her intake before 6 mnths. She needs at least 28 oz of formula at this stage. Solids should not overtake milk at this early stage as it's more important than solids.
Harriet HATES baby porridge full stop, wont have it with anything!!

well no harm in her not getting enough milk, she has like 40oz a day!!


think im gunna have to start making bigger portions - Harriet is finishing hers so fast and im sure she would take more, greedy girl! only problem we have now is still no high chair....!!

Jacob has baby porridge in the mornings and for his dinner. Ive never seen anything like it, he scoffs it down and tries to nick the bowl from us as if to pour it down his own neck lol bless him :-)

Erin tried pureed parsnip for lunch today, and I don't think she really knew what to make of it. When you introduce a new flavour is it best to stick at it for a few days in a row, or shall I change to carrot tomorrow, which I know she likes?

I would do carrot & parsnip puree will get her used to the parsnip flavour but it won't be too overpowering.

Lola loves parsnip, potato and apple puree!
