Q.

weaning

My daughter is 4 months and 2 weeks old and I have begun feeding a cereal and purity since she turned about 4 months. I give her purity cereal (only about 2 teaspoons) in the morning and about 2- 3 teaspoons of purity in the evenings. Is this enough for the time being or should I give her bigger helpings during thest times as well as perhaps something for lunch time. She still breasfeeds as well as well as drinks NAN 1 formula.

The helpings sound sufficient and you may increase slowly as she tolerates it. There is no hurry to start with solids 3 times a day at this age and you can introduce a third meal once she copes well and takes sufficient amounts in the morning and afternoon.
