Zaria’s First Solid – Home made organic cereal June 24, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in parenting, recipe, Zaria.

Whoosh! 4 more days and Zaria will turn 6months. We let her have her first solid yesterday.

Preparing Zaria's 1st Solid

Soaked rice grain; blending the rice; Zaria all excited in the kitchen; Zaria kept entertained while the cereal was being cooked

1 soup spoon organic brown rice
1 oz breast milk
some water

Soak brown rice for 2 hours
Blend brown rice with water until grains become fine
Cook liquid rice over slow fire, stirring often for about 5~7mins
Stir in Add breast milk and bring to boil.

Yummy Yummy

Yummy Yummy, faster, quick, feed me, feed me!

She loves it! Kept opening her mouth and trying to grab the spoon! Next week, I’ll add quinoa and millet into her cereal.

Happy and Satisfied baby

Me : “Are you happy? Pao pao (Chinese : full) already?” Zaria : *big grin*

hahaha, what a wonderful picture, that last one!!! So cute!! Can almost hear the little burp.. almost..

2. dancing queen - June 24, 2007

Er.. won’t you be destroying all the goodness when you boil the breastmilk? ๐Ÿ™‚

ZMM : Changed the recipe.. ๐Ÿ˜› Actually I was using frozen milk, and wanted it to melt real quick since Zaria was a bit impatient already, so I brought it to boil.. But after that, I only stir in freshly ‘squeezed’ breast milk after the fire is turned off..

I must try your cereal recipe. It sounds pretty easy to make. Tessa isn’t very keen on porridge. She prefers rice, but can’t swallow well.

and well done to mummy on the home made cereal…

43. sue - June 30, 2007

I’ve tried cereal with my own breastmilk when I made it for Izac, tasted yucky. Maybe it tasted weird for me coz i always felt breastmilk comes with the fishy bloody taste… but I guess babies have a different kind of tastebud ๐Ÿ˜›

44. Mama BoK - July 4, 2007

Even Zaria is way better in eating than our chloe..! when chloe was 6 months old.. she still refuses her solids..! headache with my gal..! so everytime i see ppl’s baby eating so good.. i cannot help but feel so envious..!
