just a couple of the many million questions I've had about weaning!?!

also, can you do the same with baby porridge? (the stuff from Boots)

thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me. She has Hipp formula but I don't want to overload her with dairy as I think it makes her eczema worse.

Don't bother with baby rice and baby porridge. Just give them normal stuff.

You can just give regular porridge maide with any milks or eggs or whatever for breakfast. Baby rice tastes like wallpaper paste

thanks for the feedback, nhs website says no rice milk before 5 btw, due to naturally occurring asenic or something.

well it's too late, I've bought the stuff!!! might try a bit tomo but not bother after that......

Don't be surprised if it's rejected - it tastes absolutely rank!

I agree. If it's their first taste of food then make it memorable for the right reasons. Just bin it!

Yes no rice milk at all before 5. The arsenic levels are too high, you can't give that to a baby. Use oat or coconut milk with regular oats if you want less dairy

I make my own porridge with half oat milk and half water and it's delicious.
