AlphaHandMaiden:



I never gave my baby pap, or any of the various pap combinations. Whether corn, millet or guinea corn, with soya, with crayfish, or any other variation.

We only did formular and mashed/ purreed foods from 6 months plus, so there are LOADS of stuff you can give. Including modifications of the normal food you eat at home.

In fact i gave pap for the first time like 3 weeks ago. Now my dd eats well and takes almost everything but she absolutely hated it. so i dont understand why so many people reccommend it.?

Now that we are one.... ( yippeee!!!) I have brought out the Nido milk. And sippe cup. I have given myself one month to phase out all feeding bottles.

You can mash or puree almost anything. You can start with sweet potato before you introduce irish potato and yam.

Let me give you a list of some of my tried and tested menus..... yes i kept a record of our meals and combinations. And will keep the book like a treasure. .


●beans and ripe plantain pottage ( no oil, and pass through a wire mesh sieve with a spoon to remove the skins)
●Avocado and egg yolk
●Yam and fish with small butter ( with spinach and/or garden egg as an option)
●Ripe plantain and fish/meat/poultry
●Pureed mango, banana or other fruit.( either plain or with baby rice to add bulk)
●amala with blended okra soup with fish
●sweet corn, beetroot and chicken
● yam pottage ( remove before adding oil and pepper and maggi)
● Beans and sweet potato.
●carrot, sweet corn and cabbage purree wih small knob of butter.
● Pasta with mince meat sauce ( or stew with meat- blend afterwards just omit pepper and spices.- you can make her own stew/ sauce seperately and combine with "soggy rice or pasta. ) i also find mixing pasta and rice with maybe carrot/sweet corn/other veggie puree help with not making it too tomato-ey.

Note: You may need to add some water while pureeing or blending to get the right texture. If it is too dry, your dd is likely to refuse it.

Dont be scared of adding too much water... if it turns out too watery, add a bit of baby rice or boiled irish potato to thicken it back up. It wont change the taste.


So dearie, there is more to weaning than frisco gold and pap!
Good luck.

In addition to milk (milk is important for the 1st one year), there are plenty of hassle free, affordable, highly nutritious home made meals you can give your baby. All you have to do is have them puréed and you get the same ogi consistency.

Sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, carrots, green peas, runner beans, sweet corn, chicken, fish,beef, sweet peppers, avocado, banana, broccoli, Apple, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach (although I introduced this around 12months), etc.

For example, this is a very simple recipe: boil Irish potatoes (a good source of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid) and chicken breast or any boneless chicken (very high in protein, vitamins B, B6, B12, C, D, E, niacin, and magnesium).

Let it cool and toss in your blender. Blend it till it's smooth with no lumps. Add water in bits till you get the required consistency. Add a little sunflower oil. Feed your baby and keep the rest in your fridge or freezer.

How to completely stop your baby from breastfeeding may be a little challenging for some mothers and for others it’s just a walk in the park. Weaning doesn’t have to be difficult, it has to be properly planned in order to make a smooth transition for both mother and child.

When is the best time to start weaning?

World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of an infant’s life thereafter infants should receive complementary food with continued breastfeeding up to 2years of age or beyond. However when to start weaning your child should be a personal decision. When babies are introduced to formula or solids the weaning process starts naturally and gradually and that often happens at age six months or earlier.

Some children initiate weaning themselves, by gradually losing interest in breastfeeding- often gets distracted while nursing and would refuse to nurse again even after the distraction had passed, some overtime prefers other foods and is fascinated at the site of it than at nursing. Some mothers may observe such child and use that opportunity to completely wean while some children would naturally stop breastfeeding because they feel other foods give them what they want.

Mothers also initiate weaning especially mom’s returning to work or moms who feel they are ready. But the question often asked- is your child ready? Weaning has to be a two-way thing, mother and child have to be ready before a child is weaned. However, if a child is not ready and mother is ready, then the mother should take it gradually by reducing nursing time and giving the baby a lot of distraction in food form.

Choose a time that feels right for you (it’s a personal decision) and your baby when you eventually decide to wean. Having your child taken far away from you as possible is not the best approach to weaning as this may be traumatic for the child. All children eventually wean whether they do it at their own pace or mother initiated.

When not to Wean

1. Don’t wean when the baby is sick: This is a time the baby needs nutrition, comfort, and reassurance and they find it during nursing. For older babies who have been introduced to solids, they often reject these foods and prefer to nurse.
2. Don’t wean when you are under stress: it’s in the best interest of the both mother and child to wean when they are emotionally stable. Avoid weaning when there is a situation that may lead to stress like preparing for a long journey or family relocation. Such occasions are not favorable for a smooth transition.
3. Don’t wean when you feel it may affect your child negatively: If you have concerns and doubts about weaning your baby then you should talk to your Doctor about it.
4. Don’t wean abruptly when you discover you are pregnant with another baby: I interviewed some mothers and I found out that some who had been pregnant at some point while they still had an infant ended breastfeeding abruptly just on discovering they were pregnant with another baby. It’s a Myth that breastfeeding while pregnant hurts both the fetus and the breastfed baby. Yes, you can continue to nurse while pregnant depending on your medical history according to HealthyChildren.Org (American Academy of pediatrics parenting website). However, talk to your Doctor about weaning when you discover you are pregnant with another child.

Tips to Weaning

1. Reduce nursing time: Reduce the time it takes for your baby to nurse if he usually takes ten minutes try five minutes and see how he responds to it. Complement with healthy snacks like milk, fruit- banana or his solid foods.
2. Reduce the feed: Skip his feeds one at a time by offering another food instead of breastmilk. But make it a gradual process. If he usually feeds 5times a day on breastmilk, reduce it 3 times.
Serve breast milk in cups: You can express and serve in a cup or bottle for your baby. It helps minimize nursing.
3. Nigerian mothers rub bitter leaf on their nipples just at the time of nursing so naturally, some baby’s reject both breast and milk because it has a bitter taste.While it may work for some it may not work for others. Some baby’s still nurse with the bitter taste until it wears off.
4. Keeping baby far away from you: Some mothers keep their toddlers away from them like making the nanny spend the weekend with grandma. Though this method may work but it may be traumatizing for the child and would rather be a crude way of transiting.

Whichever way you choose to wean, it’s your choice but it’s to start slowly to avoid engorgement. In such case, you apply cold packs to your breast to reduce pain and swelling.

Before you take any medication discuss with your doctor. Breastmilk dries up within few days to weeks so you don’t need any drug to help you do that; it’s a natural phenomenon.

Today's breakfast. For the whole family.

Oats with raisins and banana.

Add raisins either whole or chopped to oats before cooking.
Add chopped / sliced bananas after cooking.

Add milk

Serve.

Great for the whole family. No need for sweeters.

For babies under 1 year, chop raisins before adding or blend afterwards if required - add formula

For babies above 1 year - you may want to chop the raisins before adding add mormal full cream milk.

For older children and adults, whole raisins are fine. Normal milk, you can also add a spoon of ground flaxseed to make itn extra healthy

Have a blessed sunday and a great week ahead

Thank God for this thread, very timely. Now my issue, my son clocked 6months 5days ago. We did ebf but a week b4 he clocked 6months, i introduced water and homemade pap. Both of which he took very well, infact i was surprised because i was just testing the waters. When he was about 5months, i tried introducing formula to him in a bottle, which he absolutely rejected. Now we struggle with barely 30ml of formula. I still breastfeed actively.

For the past two days, it has been a struggle to get him to take the pap. Just a few spoons and he rejects it and this is someone that finishes the whole bowl. I tried another cereal, same thing. What do i do?

But reading thru your post, i see i have other options to choose from. Which is safe as a weaning meal because I'm sure he is too early for all that food combo. I also need to get a blender for him, so i can try the purees. I don't want an underfed child.

Lastly, is milo safe for him?

Milo is a no no. at least not until he is at least above 12 months

all he need is either breast milk or formular for over 6 month aka follow on milk.

Regarding the foods, start one at a time before you begin combining.

For example, you can introduce only carrot puree today, maybe sweetpotato puree tomorrow this will help you know if he has any allergic reactions to any food that is new. after a week or so you can then mix carrot and sweet potato.

you gradually build-up like that.

We use 2 different coolers for her meals...
She is still messy wt food so this kinda compartment plated nor go work for us... Maybe when she is much older.
Check lushluxurykids or rubifor_your_home on IG, seen those portion plates on their pages b4.

Breakfast - Pap, AS food... I'm tryna introduce bread n tea as a breakfast option sha, since she likes both and presently takes them inbetween meals

Snack - bread, biscuits, fried plantain, banana, apple, boiled egg

Drinks - ribena, tea, water

Early Lunch - rice+stew, jollof rice, beans+yam, beans+plantain, plain beans+mashed titus fish, plantain+stew, jollof spaghetti, any other cooked meal option is fine.
I use either liver, beef or fish to support her meals. I cut them up into tiny cubes dt she can chew easily. For the fish, i debone and break into flakes.

Late lunch - cereal (cerelac or nutribom). I pack 2 types of cereal (sometimes she eats both b4 5.30pm and sometimes she has just 1, depending on how hungry she gets that day)

Dinner - she loves eba and we don't take it t school, so it's mostly had as dinner. She also eats whatever I am having for dinner wt me. (last nyt we had boiled yam+fried egg)
On days when I'm too tired to make dinner, if she has remaining cereal from school, she has that for dinner.

AlphaHandMaiden:


when i said entire journey, i didnt mean the entire time you will be away. i meant the period of time you will actually be traveling. ie. flight or car journey time from your home to your destination, and any transit times you spend in the airport.

So if for instance you live in Ibadan, travelling to New york and transiting in Amsterdam: you need to carry enough food from when you leave your house in Ibadan till you get to the place you will be staying in your destination city in america, plus a few extra days worth of food as if you arrive at a stupid time, the shops may be closed and you wont be able to buy anything till the next day.

Example:

Ibadan to Lagos - lets allow 2 hours
assuming you arrive 3 hours before your flight allow for this in your calculation
Lagos Amsterdam - 6 hours
transit in Amsterdam - 3 hours
Amsterdam to NYC - JFK- 8 hours
JFK to where you are staying - assuming 1.5 hours

total - 23.5 hours
you basically allow for 24 hours food, milk snacks, and bottles for your journey ( handbag and hand luggage) plus a couple of days extra for when you get to NYC ( in your checked in luggage).

pack each travel meal separately in transparent freezer bags and label them: for example breakfast bag will contain, milk, cereal, fruit and snacks, bottles, bowls, spoons and bibs. same for lunch, dinner and any other meals

it makes it easier when you get to security and you need to bring out your hoard of "liquids" and fluids and food

take only the meal pack you need in the plane or car journeys in your handbag put the others in your hand luggage.

if you feed your babies just before you leave home, put the first food pack in your handbag, you may need it in the car so it should be within easy reach.

when you get to the airport, during transit or before you land move the meal pack for the next meal into your handbag. because when you get to your destination....... they can put your hand luggage into the booth and there may not be a good place to stop the car and retrieve it so either you keep it with you or you move what you need into your handbag.

Pack the foods you know your babies like and take without much drama, this is not the time to be experimenting if you have a fussy eater.

Aim to feed and do your nappy changes before: you get into the car, plane and before you land. - Immigration queues can be long. if you arrive at the same time an A380 packed to the brim is arriving from China, or india, immigration will be packed to the hilt and you can easily be on the line for an hour or more. the airport staff may not even see you to give you preferential treatment due to the crowds so plan ahead.

if you are checking in a buggy, and you are transiting and will need it in your transit airport- IMPORTANT!!! Make sure you let the check in staff know you will need it in your transit location ( there is a special tag that lets the ground staff know it needs to be returned to the plane doors at the transit hub - because they can collect it from you and the next time you will see it is at your final destination! very very annoying!!!


allow extra time for travel, and clearing security, because of the food you are carrying, they will check, swab and scrutinise, EVERYTHING. if you dont leave enough time you can miss your flight!

He he he he wetin i do na?!

Pele, you don try! E no easy. I wonder how some people manage to do it for longer..

I dont know if his being pre term matters so you will have to check with your doctor first.

For starters what i did was get a pack each of

baby rice ( you know my struggles from previous post),
Aptamil cereal
Cow and gate creamy porridge. All of them the ones from 4 mos.
( aptamil cereal and the creamy porridge already contain milk so its just to add water.)

Then also some cow and gate food jars. Just a few for out and about days or when food inspiration fails me.

To be honest the orisirisi is not that hard and it is waaaaayyyyy cheaper than pouch or jar food!

I started with basic and easy fruits and veg...

■Banana - can be mashed with a fork
■Mangoes - if ripe enough a fork would do but in the early days i used a hand blender to make it eeally smooth
■carrots - boiled or steamed and blended
■avocado - mashed with a fork.
■Sweet potato - boiled and mashed or blended till smooth.
■ripe plantain - boiled and blended

Note for most of these you would need to add a few spoons of water to blend any excess was put in an ice tray wraped in cling film and frozen. If you are using immediately you can use some of babies usual milk.

I did single stuff for like 2 - 3 weeks, then started my mixy mixy. I then take my baby's food out of the main pot before i add maggi, and pepper.

So things like, beans, yam, spinach, amala, poundo, okra were introduced. So that she gets used to the house food. ( as i dont want her to go and get used to cauliflower cheese from hipp and the like meanwhile na amala and yam the rest of us dey chop for house. I cant set myself up for future food drama. My policy is one house - one pot)

If you do a search, there are like one or more pages with various food ideas from different mamas.

If he can hold stuff you can start giving him finger foods duting meal times things like yam, potatoes, soft boiled carrots can be sliced up for him to hold and he will just be there contently sucking the life out of it......

Please do not leave him alone un- supervised with food at any time.

Also i introduced food with a soft tip spoon and water from a cup at mealtimes.....

AlphaHandMaiden:


Is it the formular she is rejecting or the teat!?

It may be she doesnt like the teat as i know a few people who have gone through a wide range of teats and bottle brands to get the one that their baby accepts.

Since you are thinking of weaning her, You can try given her a bit of formular from a spoon or even a cup! Yes it will be messy at the start but at least you may be able to tell if its the formular she doesnt like. Get one of those clear small plastic disposable cups so you can see her mouth.

Also, are you breast feeding her as well?

Have you tried giving her expressed milk from the same bottle? If she rejects that too it may just be the bottle/teat combo and not the milk.

Should you decide to introduce other foods, limit it to just a few teaspoons at a time and simple single flavours....i.e no mixy-mixy. And blend to a very smooth purree.
Banana, mangoes, cooked carrots, avocado, sweet potato are good for starters and remember to give some water as well to avoid constipation.

If it seems she is spitting it out... remember that spoon feeding and moving food in her mouth new to her. She needs to learn new tongue movements that move the food from front of mouth to the back and get used to the new flavours and textures. So be patient.

The recipe

I think i must shared this b4 on NL but cant say when or where.
Well what u need.
Beans (washed and carefully picked without any beans covering like u want to prepare moi moi)
Titus fish- skinned n de-boned... then scattered to be almost mashed.
Carefully picked crayfish or prawns without the legs and all that....
Good cooking oil (or olive oil)


Put washed beans in d pot to cook till soft.
When very soft add the fish..
The cryfish n lil onion should be blended n added.
No spice but u can put a pinch of salt
Table spoon of oil will do.
Then continue cooking very well till everything desolves.

Then serve with butter or egg yoke.

Put d rest in transparent nylon in small small quantity like small moi moi and freeze.
When baby wants to eat... put in d hottest part (vegetable section) of fridge or outside d fridge to defrost and warm.

I think its 6months to 1year
The child will just be licking mouth.
U can then proceed to moi moi.
Although most children eat moi moi as early as possible.

Modify
So my mum came over n made it for Zoe
She blended the mix after cooking very soft so Zoe can use a feeding bottle.
She also added liver.

I understand the question. For clarity see recipe

Mix your formula powder with water (or use expressed breastmilk)
Break egg inside the mixed milk
Whisk together, you should have the consistency of moin moin mix
Pour in a ramekin (use a mug if you don't have ramekin)
Place in a pot of water and steam for about 30 mins (like moin moin, check periodically to confirm it's cooked through)

Listeriasis won't come up here because the egg gets cooked

Recipe is on baby centre and other baby sites but you'll see cornflour and sugar in some of them

Yes you can add breast milk. For a 6 month old, use the consistency of typical pap to gauge the amount of milk you add.

I also usually use the commercial baby jar foods as a guide to textures. How Smooth or how lumpy it needs to be for a particular age. You may not get it exactly as the commercial brands as they usually have better industrial blenders than what you have in your kitchen but it can make a difference to the baby rejecting a food due to texture.

You can feed with bottle. You can also mix in a cup and give her in place of water during meals. You can also add to some pureed recipes. Shared a couple from feddy27 above.
