any ideas - ds is 6 and a half montha old. breastfeeding - have held off solids till recently because of history of allergies. baby rice seems to make him constipated and wakeful at night (a lot!)Haven't given him any for the past 2 days and we've all had some sleep. Would you try veg?any similar experiences? don't want to hold off any longer as third and fourth top teeth coming!
we never used baby rice as ds hated it (dont blame him - have you tried it?!). he was weaned on veg and lentil soup before stock was added (so just veg, lentils and olive oil). also loved stewed apple, pear, banana - anything with some taste to it! we did find that some things didnt agree with him (banana came out looking exactly same as it went in) so stopped giving that for a few weeks then tried again when he was a bit older. no need for baby rice imo, hv agreed
Don't worry about that. He'll probably zip through the preliminary stages of weaning and be eating a sufficiently varied diet within a month or two. That's one of the advantages of leaving weaning as late as possible.
