Re: Rice Cereal mixed with breast milk
You might want to give your baby a spoon and bowl to play with during meals. Sometimes that's enough to keep an eager baby busy.
It's hard though when she watches mommy and daddy eat and is begging with her eyes and her hands!
You can start with the avocado. The only reason to start with cereal is that it's bland and fortified with vitamins and minerals. Other than that, cereal is just plain starch. Not the healthiest stuff!
I have heard, and read, from many sources to start baby off with rice cereal. (although I'm really looking forward to letting her try some avacado).
Try it and see! You never know what will happen!
Is hand expressing enough?
Many moms have better luck with the pump- but pumping is a learned skill and many moms find they need to pump multiple times and try different pumps before they get a good amount of milk.
What about pumping? I have the same concern.
Don't be sorry! My Dad always says "Experience is something you get right after you need it."
I'm sorry. I'm such a novice.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
