Baie babas van 8 maande eet Weetbix maar ek is bekommerd oor die sout inhoud van Weetbix vir 'n baba van die ouderdom. Dit is beter om tot 12 tot 15 maande te wag voordat hy Weetbix begin eet.

I think that at this age, the only porridgy stuff baby should be having is jungle oats or maltabella - mixed with breast milk or formula, and don' t put salt in when you make it.
Babies can start to have pronutro from around a year.
I' d leave the weetbix till baby is about two or three.
