Q.

Solids

I' ve recently started my baby on solids, he' ll be 5 months in 2 weeks. I give him Cerelac cereal at night before his milk feed and some butternut purity for lunch..What is the next step? When should I introduce fruit and do I move the cereal for the morning or keep it at night?

Thank you

Do not rush things. Start off with a rice or maize cereal twice daily then introduce a vegetable at lunchtime and a fruit or vegtable in the evening. Go to this website for more information: www.babynet.co.za
