Ask your question

  • Yes try farex first! Interesting reading the comments given to this!



  • No, I would think he would need more sustenance whilst sick. Go for veggies and fruit, a little mixed in with fares to start with….to check for reactions.



  • My sons first foods was pureed apple and beef and vege pureed.



  • Try farex first.



  • following…
    Ive just started farex mixed with breast milk, baby 5 moonths not really swallowing. ive also mixed banana with it. tried a bit of mash potato and apple puree. today we tried weetbix



  • I will be making my own purée ans it will be a mix of pumpkin, carrot, Apple and a form of meat high in iron as my boy is borderline anaemic. It’s good to start with a mix of meat and veg. :) if you do it yourself it’s cheaper, easier and not such a waste!



  • my son tried farax at 4 months and hated it, so we tried puree apple and he loves it, some of his other favourites was sweet potatoe and a variety of veges mixed together :)



  • yogurt mince meats grated cheese toast .



  • there are some good comments here



  • fruits and yogurt are good or mashed veg’s



  • fruits are the best – pear I think is the easiest to digest and has no issues with causing constipation



  • How did you go with their first solid food?



  • i hope all is well



  • how did you end up going?



  • I started mostly with pureed fruits with mine.
