Just a quick question
Has anyone tried making 'Ella's Kitchen Organic Wakey Wakey Porridge with Strawberry, Mango & Banana'
with water not milk?

It says on the packet use milk but just want any advise if water works with it too?
Thanks

Why don't you want to use milk jack?

I'm still only breastfeeding and don't want to express while on holiday. Plus it's convenience for me really.
I milk feed as soon as baby wakes (a 7 month old) then 1 or 1:30hrs later he has porridge - I've just finished a Heinz product which you mix with water but saw the Ella one which is better (ie a stage 2) so just thinking of either sticking with the Heinz and add real fruit or go with the Ella?

You can use cows milk in food and cereal, only not as a drink.

You could still use cow's milk for cooking/cereal - I'm not an expert, but I b/f'ed too and can't think of single reason not to use normal milk in food (unless you have particular ethical reasons not to?)

Just make sure it's full fat milk and it will be fine.

Does the milk have to be warmed ?

For the porridge? I'd have thought warm porridge was nicer than cold. But in general, no. E.g. cold cows milk on Weetabix would be fine.

I'd buy ready brek too. EK is expensive.

Thanks everyone ! 😀

I bf too and used ready brek with warmed full fat cows milk. As others have said, cows milk is fine in food from 6 months and ready brek is way cheaper.

Hope you have a great holiday smile

I agree - the only "baby food" we buy is Ella's fruit pouches and I'm happy to pay for that, but their cereal is criminally expensive.

Like people said upthread, Weetabix or readybrek is a good choice.
