I giving my 7 months LO fruit s puree ready made type. Yesterday LO went for injections and the nurse asked me what did I feed LO. I say milk 150ml about 3hrs and I give fruit puree once day let LO let LO try the taste of it. And the nurse was so shocked and keep saying must give cereal and porridge already lei, let him eat twice a day if LO like it. I say puree is okay right? She say no no must give LO porridge and can give egg and a lot of other food she lost down. I was shocked and I wondering isn't doctor suppose to be the one telling me when to let LO try egg and those allergy food to see reaction? But the nurse say is okay one. Just let you LO eat don't just give him milk. I not sure because I know that before 1 years old milk is the main food. Solid food just let him try and give abit not too much , as I worry he cannot take it too much. I not sure. Don't know should I.listen to the nurse anot?

It is important to start giving cereal and porridge from 6months onwards otherwise later LO will not take as they tend to get used to with milk intake only. Thats the reason why the nurse advice to start giving as soon as possible. I also think it's Ok for the nurseto give you those advice cos they are in that line for years already those new Nurses will gv basic info only but if you are not comfortable to that and prefers the Dr to talk to you about all those stuff you can inform them next time but in Polyclinic its usually the nurse give alot of informations rather then the Drs.
