I know we can use whole cows milk when cooking from 6 months but i'm confused about cereal!

If i give Karl weetabix do i use his milk or is warm cows milk ok?
Also can he haave ready-break?
Last one can he have margarine on his toast?

I don't think we can use cows milk in cereal until 12mo. due to the concern for milk/dairy allergies and some disease concerns... at least that's what our doctor told us.

And, again with the margarine or butter on his toast, my understanding is no...

It's all so different depending on your doctor/health visitor.

I have always used formula in Kirsty's breakfast (weetabix or porridge). I, personally, wouldn't use cow's milk on it yet, but you can run it by your HV and see what she thinks.

I haven't used reddy brek, i'm not too sure if it's suitable? Check the sugar & salt contents! I use baby porridge or real porridge oats - real porridge can be made using cow's milk (therefore perhaps weetabix is ok with it too?!), it can be frozen as well so you could bulk make it and take it out to thaw in portion sizes. I froze it in ice cube trays.

I was advised by both Kirsty's doctor & HV to use a think scarping of marg/butter on toast for Kirsty so it's not too dry. So it's up to you if you wish to use it. Again you could check with your HV for reassurance if you're not sure.

aww thanks Fi! I was just so confused about when he can start having them as they tell you so much!

I have started putting a tiny bit of marg on his toast just to make it slightly less dry. and i'll double check the milk thing when we see the HV next.

Let me know what she says as I'm interested to know! Given the fact that it can be used in their porridge (Annabel Karmel book is what I used!), I should imagine it's ok for their weetabix also, but would never say yes or no. It's always best to ask if we are unsure.

How is he doing with his foods the past few days?

He's doing really really well! we've moved on from purees and now on lumps so far he's had -

Home made beef stew
Steak pie (without the pastry) cabbage, potatos and carrots
Beef Hot pot
Chicken with carrot and swede
weetabix
porridge

Finger foods he's had -

Toast
bread with a tiny bit of cheese
rice cakes
these biscuit things (there not sweet ones though cant remember what there called)
sweetcorn rings
carrot stix (same brand as the sweet corn rings the ones that look like chip sticks)
Fruit and veg!

Going to try and make some more things for him to try later in the week am thinking when i go to asda tomorrow i might get one of the Annabel Karmel books as i've been meaning to for ages!

I use the organix sweetcorn rings and carrot stixs too. KIrsty does good with the carrot stix but the rings seem to break up too easily but don't melt the same as the stix.

The Annabel Karmel books are fab!! I use mine all the time! I mainly use them for ideas and expand on the recipes but the recipes make delicious foods!!
