well, this is it! it's solids time. i've been looking forward to this day. as soon as uno's pedia gave the go signal, uno's nanny and i discussed a game plan. although cerelac is good and all, i would want uno to eat real fruits and vegetables. since i don't have a food processor yet, i decided to buy something from an organic store. enter, healthy options.
i have a cousin who really loves this store. ever since my aunt was diagnosed with cancer, they've been getting almost all their stuff here. so i figured, this would be the best place to get something healthy for my baby. but, what do i get?
the book what to expect the first year recommends the following first foods to give your baby: rice cereals, barley cereals, and oat cereals. luckily, healthy options has whole grain rice cereals...and organic at that!
earth's best organic whole grain rice cereal (227g) for only php139.
prior to purchasing this good stuff, i already bought uno's feeding spoons. it took me around an hour to decide what spoons to get (coz frankly, i didn't know feeding spoons can be expensive). i finally settled on these:
got these from market2 for php159.75 only.
it's time to eat!
first, i transferred the rice cereals to an empty milk formula can. after washing and drying the blue spoon, i put 3 spoons full of cereals to one avent via cup. mixed it with uno's milk until i got the consistency i was looking for.
uno's nanny let him sat on her lap and put a bib under his chin. i got my older brother's iphone, got a teeny-weeny serving and said, aah!
to my delight, we didn't have any problems feeding uno his first solid food. yey! the cereal may be bland in taste (yes, i tasted it after), but i would have to say, he enjoyed it! good thing we had water on hand coz boy, was he thirsty. ;-)
uno didn't seem to have an allergic reaction to the rice cereals. so we moved on to something else...watch out for it.
i will post the video as soon as i get it from my brother. enjoy the rest of your sunday!
