weaning to solids : 7-8 months

Busy 2 months for her, as she was becoming mobile. She started crawling, swimming with Daddy. Fine motor skills - banging cubes, pincer grasp, holding her sippy. She was very sociable, prior to separation/ stranger anxiety. She hated pooping in diaper, so she learned to potty.

I continued with the previous food. I used many combo, and only introduced:

7 months:
  • prune
  • sawi
  • spaghetti
  • spinach
  • guava
  • spelt rusk
  • pear
  • (vomited Nestum baby cereal, poor kid)
8 months:
  • salmon
  • cod
  • cauliflower
  • beef
We started giving finger food at 7 months, and discovered she loves spaghetti, and later on... most types of pasta.

By 8 months, we started protein. As per Hubby's rationale, he'd rather have her eat fish rather than chicken. She loves her fish, although in small quantities.

How do you know she eats enough (coz most ends up on the floor *nightmare to clean*)?
She passes normal stool, once or twice a day (or she may skip a day - as long as she's not fussy, her tummy's fine)

    She hasn't talked, so susah la mak dia kena tgk sign dia nak potty. Bapak dia fail to recognise sign.. so Arianna potty dgn mommy, tok/ wan dia. I think dia lagi geli yak dlm diapers.
