Second Weaning Step
Second Weaning Meal: first solid evening meal
The next step is to replace the afternoon/evening milk feed with a cereal porridge.
Every Holle Organic Baby Porridge is made using not only the main body of the grain, but the entire kernel, including the important outer bran layer, which ensures the entire nutritional contents of the grain such as vitamins, minerals and fibre are retained. The wholegrain seeds are gently cooked and prepared using a special method that unlocks their goodness to produce fine, readily soluble and easily digestible flakes, giving your little one a good meal of slow release energy providing carbohydrates.
Every child is diﬀerent and knows exactly what he or she wants and likes best. Observe your child’s reactions as you introduce foods and together you will explore and discover his or her individual weaning diet.
After introducing the Rice and Millet Porridges you can try your little one with other organic single grain baby cereals such as Spelt, Semolina or Rolled Oats (these contain gluten). The step by step rule also applies here. Later for more variety you can try the mixed grain porridges such as 3-Grain or the more fruity Holle Organic Muesli Porridge.
Every weaning meal replaces one milk feed (breast feed or bottle feed). If you have, as suggested, breastfed your baby fully for six months then the ages mentioned above will move forwards accordingly. The age in months shown is the earliest possible time to introduce solid foods. According to your baby’s development, suggested ages may vary by 1–2 months. These variations are entirely natural and normal!
