This post is related to a photo album on my FB: Musa’s Meals Diary
If you have read my post about welcoming solid foods for Musa and the review in the first week, you may want to know what he finally ate up to now. When I’m writing this review, he’ll become 9 months within two days, so almost three months of eating! (Read: what I mean with eating is consuming solid foods besides milk feeding.. :D)
I set up environment, routine, and style since the day 1 in giving Musa solids, but it was little disrupted in the second month when we went home country for three weeks. I didn’t wean him ideally during our stay in Indonesia because we traveled either inside or out of city/town almost every day. Time and tools to cook were limited as well, so before we settled at my parents home in the last week, I relied on jarred/tubed fruits/vegetables we brought from USA and also the fresh produces we got locally. Thanks to Allah, I found it was easy to serve him raw fruits/vegetables while being mobile. I wonder if his self-feeding habit has trained him to be such independent eater.
The review similar to this post will be made in series for six months of eating and I’m gonna make summary of the new foods for each month. I’m not 100% following recommendation about time to give particular food, but I find that Wholesome Baby Food website is nice to use for checking the reasons, so you can estimate the risk when you choose to differ. For example, broccoli is not recommended as the first food because it triggers gas (yet, I still gave Musa it in this first month and he was okay.. hahaha).
Besides the food summary, I also include a table containing meals of the month. Since I don’t make meal plan for Musa’s baby food (err.. I meant, I ‘write’ it in my head :D), the list helps me to trace what I’ve given to the baby from nutrition viewpoint.
