Amin is 4 months now!

Last Saturday Amin genap 4 bln. Beratnya? Tak tahu lagik sbb tak gi timbang. Tapi rasa2nya adalah dlm 7-7.5kg kot. Makin semangat smp kebas2 tgn kalau dukung dia skang nih. Semlm Amin start tak nak berenggang.. asik nak menyusu.. dh ready utk solid foodke ek? nampak cam dia asik lapar jer. sianlak kat dia. Info from Babycenter as below

How will I know when my baby's ready?
Your baby will give you clear signs when he's ready to move beyond liquid-only nourishment. Cues to look for include:
- Head control. Your baby needs to be able to keep his head in a steady, upright position.
- Losing the "extrusion reflex." To keep solid food in his mouth and then swallow it, your baby needs to stop using his tongue to push food out of his mouth.
- Sitting well when supported. Even if he's not quite ready for a highchair, your baby needs to be able to sit upright to swallow well.
- Chewing motions. Your baby's mouth and tongue develop in sync with his digestive system. To start solids, he should be able to move food to the back of his mouth and swallow. As he learns to swallow efficiently, you may notice less drooling. He may also be teething around the same time.
- Significant weight gain. Most babies are ready to eat solids when they've doubled their birth weight (or weigh about 15 pounds) and are at least 4 months old.
- Growing appetite. He seems hungry — even with eight to ten feedings of breast milk or formula a day.
- Curiosity about what you're eating. Your baby may begin eyeing your bowl of rice or reaching for a forkful of fettuccine as it travels from your plate to your mouth.

Nuha pun sama. Sejak 3 bulan lg, dia dah sangat nak kat makanan. Bila Ummi/Abah dia makan...dia cekau sama. Mulut sibuk mengunyah.
Cuma, kalau boleh tahan...tahanlah dulu. Biar dia dgn susu ibu lebih lama. Doc suggest 6 mth baur introduce solid food (I specifically asked paed when Nuha shows the sign of ready for food early, but still she asked me to wait).

Dia bergayut...nak puas la tu. Siang2...ibunya kerja. Dapat jugak susu ibu...tapi tak sama. heheheh...biarlah..sian dia.

(kalau tanya orang tua2..sure suruh bagi makan).

p/s: ada orang petua, bg air nasi...ada pulak kata bg ubi apa ntah...sekali je...lepas tu...budak tu tak mintak dah.. tatau la detailnya. :D
