Q.

Starting a baby on solids

I have a five and half month old son - i have started him on rice cereal. he has 2 t/spoons cereal at about 9am. He is fine during the day however at night he wakes up often to feed. Do i move his solid meal to the evening rather than the morning? When do i start introducing more than 1 solid meal a day? Also when do i start increasing the amount of cereal he has?

You can certainly offer your baby the cereal in the mornings and evenings now. He is getting a bit hungry in the evenings. Look up information on feeding your baby solids on: www.purity.co.za
