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.
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.
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
