On advice of the HV, I started to give LO a little bit of baby rice in the evening as he's taking 12oz of hungry baby milk before bed and waking up in the night for more feeds. His intake in 24hrs is about 45-50oz
Anyway....... on the box it says 1 spoon rice to 10 spoon miilk. Well when I mixed it up it was really runny.
The HV reckons it should be a yogurty consistency??
You can try it, tbh worst case scenario is there will be too much for your LO and he will refuse it. But then again, he may eat the whole lot! So i'd just make it up by the tablespoon and then you'll know for next time
I worry that he takes so much milk, but he's not gaining weight excessively, so HV doesnt mind. He is just above 75% percentile for weight, but is also above 75% percentile for height, so at least he's in proportion.
It's amazing how milk intake can vary from baby to baby xx
well I settled on 1 tbs rice and 5tbs milk as this gave me the yogurty consistency that the HV talked of (same ration as you then Kaybea). He ate the whole lot and now he's grumbling, think he wants some more.
