Farrel, 6 months!!

Happy 6th Months Old to our precious Ahmad Farrel Daniel. Really happy for your progress and development till today. You are an apple of our eyes. Time flies so rapidly and we couldn't believe he is already 6 months today. I still can remember feeling him in my belly and seeing his feet poke out my belly. That's 7 months ago. However, the memory still fresh in my memory. What an amazing experience it was, now he is a big baby. In 6 months ahead he will become a toddler. And we are really hoping, all the reminiscence to raise him since newborn will remain forever in our memory.

As he's grown up now, we are starting to feed him solid food. Actually we start gave him Bledina baby food when he turned 5 months. At first I wondered how do we know our baby is ready for solid food? I began to google the information through internet and here are some tips from my reading about signs of baby readiness of solid food:
  • As a mom, we can feel our baby may ‘need something’ more than formula or breastmilk. Yeah.. my biological clock is ticking. Farrel need something more!!
  • Maybe our baby is beginning to awaken more often at night or eat more often than 'usual' and we wonder if introducing solid foods may be what he/she needs. But pls keep in mind that a growth spurt will occur between 3-4 months of age (the earliest stage). But bear in mind, he/she may also be waking due to illness and teething. Yes.. Farrel woke up more frequent than usual (usually he didn't woke up till morning since he 3 months old)
  • Ability to know she/he is full from a 'meal' with signs such as turning away from bottle or breast. This is important so that baby able to self-regulate the amount of food being eaten. This helps stop baby from accidentally overeating as parfents may continue to feed baby thinking she/he is still hungry.
  • Doubling of birth weight. Huhu... Farrel is 8kg now compare his birthweight was 3.21.

I'm a big boy!!

He learns to crawl..

He learns to sit up..
