DD 6 mths - just started blw this week - so far she's enthusiastically gumming away at stuff and impressively gumming bites out of carrot and banana but swallowing little. There's no rush but she is hungry and growing - this week 4 feeds overnight (ebf). Is baby rice mixed with breastmilk good or bad? We've given it a go - after a feed - and it went down well. She didnt like it - it was cold though so I gave it 10 secs in microwaves so it was warmer and she loved it. That's prob really bad for the goodies in breast milk though?? Avoiding wheat, gluten and dairy as she has eczema and therefore (says HV) more at risk of allergies. If I have dairy it gives her the gripes anyway. Is baby rice worth it? TIA x
I just make good old fashioned rice pudding - pudding rice plus EBM or whole milk so I can eat some myself cooked until it's really soft, sweetened with mashed banana or apple purée. No point whatsoever in baby rice after 6 months.
He can eat loads of it and it won't make a jot of difference to how often he wakes at night, though...
