    Dear Mums..........

    My LO is 5 month old. I am giving her Gerber 1st foods.. Fruits- Apple and Banana.

    I am giving her twice 2 table spoon fruit every day , But I think she can eat more than 2 spoons.

    Can I feed her half box(Little Gerber box) food (Banana or Apple) each day?

    Or Do I need to wait till she get 6 months old?

    Do I need to give her some water after every solid feeding?


    Pls suggest me.

    Thks,
    Vasuk

    Hi vasuk
    When my ds was 5 month sold I started solids like banana,applesauce from ist foods gerber..He too likes to eatthose foods esp banana.So I didnt care abt the amt.There were times when he finished the whole box.As long as hes opening his mouth I feed him..When he no longer opens his mouth or pushes the spoon away,I stop..Watch u'r baby's cues..

    I agree with PP...You can feed her as much as he wants but keep in mind that breast milk/formula milk is still the main source of nutrition. May be for one feeding you can feed her as much as she wants.. I gave my DS little water with solids...I think @ 5 months he drank around 1-2 oz of water.

    Be careful with Bananas though. It might cause constipation in some babies.

    Agree with the above posts. You can start with half a box and then move to one by 6-6.5 mo. Also you can wither BF him after food or give 1-2oz water initially.

    Hi,

    I second our friend's suggestion, i did the same way to my daughter who is now22months.

    I started at 5 1/2month with halfbox,then with a week or so 1box. At 61/2 i give her one vegetable at midmorning and evening 1 fruit box, she absolutely enjoyed the tubs...that is best time of my kid's feeding pattern.

    I still remember it green, now i crave for that pattern (no fuss eating), it always feeding time is a battle time these days.
