General Weaning Tips
Semi-solid or solid foods are much filling on baby’s stomach as compared to the intake of milk.
As such for baby newly exposed to semi-solid food, starts with serving size that is less than his usual
milk serving. Do not rush and always start with 1 food first, and once daily, to avoid overfeeding issues raised with stomach problems like constipation or stomachache. Increase serving size and
amount gradually. Always pay close attention to the progress. Serving size and amount can
be increased when the baby gets hungry more often.
