Solids so far – 2

With my baby turning half an year old in four days, I have started feeling ……….. really old, well, finally 😉

I just want to record the tastes she has been introduced to so that I can add other tastes in her food too to make her a less fussy eater. A mother can hope, can’t she?

First few weeks: (copied from old post)

    1. Baby rice
    2. Potato
    3. Banana
    4. Banana + baby rice
    5. Pears + baby rice
    6. Carrot + baby rice

Favourite – banana
not so favourite – carrot. I guess this disproves the theory that babies like what mothers ate during their preggy days.


  1. Apple puree + baby rice
  2. Mango (ripe) – hot favourite
  3. Sweet potato – resulted in firmer poo so I gave mango again
  4. Mango – poo continued to be firmer
  5. Sweet potato (again introduced to see if the poo situation continues or clears or gets worse. It didn’t clear)
  6. pears – to help with poo situation
  7. cauliflower & cheese by cow & Gate
  8. Carrot – re introduced to make her like the taste. nope Avni rejected it again. 
  9. fruit cocktail by Cow & Gate
  10. Sweet potato bake by Cow & Gate plus pears.
  11. baby rice and pears
  12. Sweet corn and Carrot – some separate and some mixed
  13. pears and pears water – this cleared the poo situation finally
  14. creamy rice breakfast by Hipp Organic
  15. Vegetable and Chicken casserole by Heinz – some shouting and jumping out of joy were shown. Avni started crying out of impatience when the portion was finished. but she was fine with milk after that I am assuming it was just hunger.

Avni is four days to six months old or 25 weeks and 3 days old

    How is she with the HIPP and C&G jars compared with the homemade purees? Does she prefer the readymades or not?

    Sorry, another comment – and how are her poos after the readymades compared with the homemades?

    (I am storing all your information on weaning in my head for later reference!)

    Yes, poo rules our world these days, doesn’t it. 🙂
    No preference to readymade or homemade. She rejected carrot and broccoli in separate forms and mixed with baby rice. no diff in poo for home made or readymade either. it continues to be firmer. 😦 I am going to give her pears water every day and see if that helps.
