Your meal including milk? Morning intake cereal 1-2 hours milk depends on your LO. Take blended porridge around 12pm. Take a bit of milk before sleep. For some child they want milk before sleep... 3pm-4pm baby bite 3.30/4.30 milk. Roughly like this but still depends on your timing. Some childcare trained this way

Can start with one meal of rice cereal mixed with mashed banana or potato and the rest having milk as usual. Going into 8 or 9 months, u can replace one milk feed with porridge with mashed fish flakes or minced meat and veggies purée etc.

If you're just starting out, baby won't take much. So continue the regular milk feeds and let the LO try a little bit of pureed food when you have your meals. Also acts like a cue that everyone eats together:)


Start with 1, then slowly increase as they grow older. Milk is still their main meal at this age.

Start with 1 first. You observe baby’s appetite

Hi, Please start with 1-2 solid meals a day


1-2 meals with solid food is a good start
