Esther starts on solids & video

Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 16 December 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Esther started on a bit of rice cereal last week, at just over 4.5 months. Both Daniel & Benjamin started with rice cereal when they were that age too. Here is a video of her slurping up the rice cereal--this video was taken last week, when I made the mixture watery. But this week, it's thicker. And soon, it'll be porridge like. Basically, she is drinking 240ml of formula now. But with formula, when you mix 240ml of water with 4 scoops of powder, you end up with 270ml of formula! So, I keep the extra 30ml and use it to make rice cereal!

We're going to take it slow. So I plan to add some carrots or sweet potato only when she turns 5 months, which will be next week actually! So far, she has not shown signs of constipation and in fact has been pooping very regularly. So that's good!
