Baby Food - guide to month wise Solid food consistency

Comments (0) | Thursday, 18 August 2016

My 2nd daughter is almost 5 months old and her paediatrician gave the below information and asked me to start solids with consistency as mentioned below. I have put this information on my blog as is so that I can refer it from time to time and with the hope that it will help some of my friends and readers. Good luck!

Please note: every child is different and there is no rule set in stone. Please use judgement and your doctor's advice always. 

The below is in this format:

  • Solid Food Texture: Age (Months) : Example
  • Thin purée (runs off spoon in s thin column, no texture or grit) : 5-61/2 months : commercial tomato sauce
  • Medium purée (runs off spoon in a thick column) : 61/2 - 7 months : pancake mix
  • Thick purée ( can be eaten with a spoon but not with a fork. Plops off spoon but does not hold it's shape, texture is very small, can be felt when rubbed between fingers, textured pieces are uniform in size) : 7-8 months : apple sauce or yogurt 
  • Finely fork mashed : 8-9 months : cooked instant oatmeal 
  • Soft bite sized cubes (turn into a purée with up/down pressure) : 10 months : over cooked pasta and vegetables , soft/ripened fruits, avocado, cheese
  • Fork mashed (grossly mashed with fork, has quite a bit of texture) : 10-11 months : egg salad, mashed potshots
  • Soft mechanical (breaks apart in mouth easily) : 11-12 months : muffins, pastas, Mac and cheese, soft chicken nuggets, fish sticks, French fries, cooked egg, meat balls.

Comments (0) |



Items required:

  1. Empty tissue box
  2. Paint
  3. Paint Brush
  4. Cookie Cutter

Steps:
  1. Provide the empty tissue box, paint, paint brush and cookie cutter to your kid.
  2. Allow your kid to choose the color she wants and her desired shaped cookie cutter. This helps enhance their decision making capabilities.
  3. Allow them to first paint on the empty tissue box on all sides. This helps them learn how to hold the box, how to paint the corners so it helps enhance their concentration, eye-hand coordination and its a great brain activity as well.
  4. Using the cookie cutter, they can dip in the paint and make some prints on the colorful tissue box.
  5. This activity really made my child happy and satisfied in the end.

Egg Carton Projects / Painting

Comments (0) |

My daughter loves to paint. So, inorder to keep my daughter (3yr 1 month old) engaged, I cut the egg carton into pieces and gave her. She selected the paint colors of her choice and started painting the egg carton. I could see she was enjoying every minute of this activity and she learnt to paint into the creases or the uneven surfaces of the carton. 

I am planning use these colored bits into making some more projects. Will be posting them shortly.

Happy Valentine's Day - I Love You Daddy

Comments (0) |

Today my daughter is 3yrs and 1 month old.
This is the first greeting card my daughter made for her dad for Valentine's Day :)
We both had a great time making this Valentine's Day card and my daughter was super joyed and felt a great sense of proud achievement when she completed the card.
When she gave the card to her dad, the expression on her face and her dad's face was something I will cherish for the years to come.

Please keep your children engaged in such activities. It helps develop concentration, motor skills and helps children to feel the true meaning of happiness and pride and achievements. Thank you.
