    Feeding my 9 month old

    Hi.

    This may seem like an obvious question but are Wheatbix and Wheatabix the same thing? I know I can feed Wheatbix to my 9 month old as a breakfast cereal, but can only find Wheatabix in HK. Is this the same thing?

    Also, is it ok to start feeding her cheddar cheese?

    And lastly, at what stage can you stop feeding baby cereals to your baby? (ie rice cereal, baby oatmeal, etc?)

    Thank you...

    I put mild cheddar cheese as an ingredient in my baby's food at around 8 months (gina ford book) so should be Ok. I still feed baby cereal for breakfast and he has congee for lunch and dinner and sometimes a bit of plain rice from our bowls so he can learn to chew. I will probably gradually let him try more adult food when he starts chewing more. I find that he keeps swallowing his food and choking.

    My 8.5 month old still has baby cereal for breakfast, he likes it, and it's a great source of iron!
    He also has yoghurt for breakfast and some fresh fruit, but I don't mix the fruit into the cereal he has it seperately and the cereal plain.

    He has also stopped wanting pureed foods and so he eats everything cut up, usually with his hands- messy but he loves it!

    Assume the wheatabix and wheatbix are the same- do they look like the same cereal on the box?

    Weet-Bix and Weetabix are different brands of a similar cereal.

    Weetbix is Australian, and I think Weetabix is from the UK.

    My 9 mth old has Weet-Bix as that's also what I have for breakfast.
    I don't like Weetabix for myself as it goes soggy the instant you add milk, which of course is fine for babies.

    He also still occasionally has rice cereal and I sometimes make him porridge (oatmeal).

    He also has fruit at breakfast.

    When you give yoghurt, do you actually replace a feed?

    i am giving my LO yoghurt as snacks ... between feeds.

    Thanks!

    Hi ELT,

    My son has yoghurt with his cereal and fruit for b'fast. He doesn't have a feed at b'fast.
    He nurses at around 5-6am and then again at 11am and then again at 7pm.
    I was still trying to get him to nurse at 4pm but it was turning into a real battle, and he just wasn't interested so I stopped trying to force him and replaced the feed with a snack- fruit, or biscuits or cheese. If he didn't have yoghurt for b'fast then would give it as a snack instead of milk!

    Would like to know when would be a good time to drop the 11am feed? Most of the time my son is still interested in it, but there are times when he is just not interested and it becomes a bit of a battle.*
