First Food: T’s very first food

T was exclusively breastfed for the first six months, so I was understandably wary of how the transition to solids would be. I was sure of one thing though that as far as possible I wanted to avoid giving him processed food. Slowly I knew what should be the first baby food for my T.


I prepared a small batch of roasted and ground white and brown rice. I boiled a teaspoon of this powder in 30 mls of water to a medium consistency and BAM! Homemade cereal was ready! I mixed it up with breast milk and T's first meal was good to go!


Learning:

For the first week, extremely diluted white rice cereal worked better as opposed to the fibre rich brown rice cereal, which caused colic. Once T's digestive system got stronger I thickened the cereal consistency and switched to brown rice. The fibre-rich and more nutritious brown rice seemed to clear out his bowels rather well too.
