Our expert says:
Good to hear from you again. I am glad to hear that your baby is now eating rice porridge and cooked vegies. You can cook the vegies in a small quantity of water (don't add salt) and then use the cooking water to dilute the pureed vegies. In this way you retain most of the nutrients that pass into the cooking water. You can add boiled, cooled water to blended foods, but formula milk is also an option. I would wait until baby is a bit older before introducing Weetbix because this cereal has rather a high fibre content and it may be difficult for baby to digest so much roughage at this stage. If the brown porridge made of millet is not full of roughage (it should be more like the rice porridge) then you can try giving baby 1 teaspoonful to see how she reacts. Keep check of bowel movements and stop if the millet porridge causes the tummy to work too much or too often. There is plenty of time to get baby used to all these new foods.
