How many cubes should I be feeding my baby each day?
This will increase over time. In your first week, you will only be adding one soft boiled egg yolk per day. In the second week, you can now alternate days, giving your baby a soft boiled egg yolk on one day and beef in beef bone broth on the next. During week three, we would like to see you combining a cube of beef and a cube of squash but let your baby guide you. Do not force feed them and expect a lot to end up on their face and on the feeding tray. Just because they stick their tongue out doesn’t mean they don’t like it. This is brand new and they will be testing texture as much as taste.
During the first few weeks, you will be adding the egg yolk in about an hour before a normal feed. As the weeks progress, you might want to test a new food directly after a feed. This is fine but always do the milk / formula feed first as that is still the main source of nutrients for your baby. By month 8, the meals you introduce will be more complex and involve a variety and combination of cubes that have already been introduced.
As the weeks progress, you will naturally reduce the number of times you breastfeed or bottle feed, opting for solid foods. It is highly likely that by month 12, you are only having a morning and evening milk feed. Speak with your GP or paediatrician to develop a plan that works for you.
