Semolina / Soji porridge
Soji / semolina porridge Soji or semolina porridge is also a good feed for babies. We introduced soji porridge when Kiele was around three and a half to four months. I resumed work during that time and the doctor had suggested not to give tin stuff for baby. Try as much as possible to avoid tin food and give her only home made food. We do give her formula milk at least twice a day – during the day we give baby either soji / semolina porridge or nachni porridge as mentioned in my earlier posting. Soji porridge is simple and fast to cook and we carry it with us while traveling etc.. Method of preparing is very simple just add soji, milk, sugar and little water and keep it on fire – keep stirring till done to avoid formation of lumps. Baby as of now enjoys eating it – her taste / likes changes. She has this habit of leaving little in her bottle we do not force her coz I feel the child will eat as much as she needs to. We should not force babies to eat hence we don’t mind it going waste. My advice to you mums and would be mums – do give your baby at least one feed of soji / semolina porridge – its very good. Your baby will also enjoy this wonderful feed.
