  Feeding: Nestum or Cerelac?
Name: Josephine Ramya
Date: 2009-07-07
My baby is 5 months old and is allergic to lactose. She is on a soy milk diet now and the doctor has asked me to start on rice cereal. I want to know the difference between Nestum and cerelac? Please help. what other diet can be started at 5 months?

Hi Josephine,

My daughter was also allergic to lactose so my paed asked me to start with nestum preparing it by adding boiled and cooled water.

She is now 14 month old and still likes to have nestum and does not like cerelac. The allergic from lactose will be over when she is around 10-11 month old.

at this mment you should start nestum for her

Nestum is rice cereal without milk, and Cerelac is rice cereal pre-mixed with milk. If she is lactose intolerant, then maybe Nestum is better. You can prepare it by adding Soy Milk and offering her.

Hi Josephine,

At 5 months of age i dont think you should start either of them. Nestum and cerelac can be started at 6 months of age. At this time you can give your child RAGI. It is good in calcium and provides lots of energy to kids. I am telling you all this with my personal experience because i also have a daughter of 1.5 yrs.
Nestum is made up of rice and cerelac is wheat. Or if you want to give rice to your kid, you can prepare idli at home and give that.
Best of luck.

Bottle feeding 7 month old
Dear Ramesh Jee, you should not worry if baby rejects bottle. In fact it is good practice to feed with spoon as inspite of maximum care it is not possible to clean bottles properly and this leads to infection. You should be happy that your baby drinks through spoon. You should carry on with infant formula till one year and may consult your doctros on providing weaning food... - Geeta [View Message]
Bottle Feeding
Did you ended up solving this issue? My 7 month old daughter is still not feeding from bottle. We give her with spoon and she has 60ml everyday. She also breastfeeds at regular intervals. We are happy with her eating routine, however just a bit concerned about this issue of rejecting bottle. We tried changing to a different bottle, that did not work either.... - Ramesh [View Message]

Dear Arishma

It is good that you contact pediatrician.
But i want to know are you not feeding yourself?. I think that you should feed yourself & than give her bottle milk.

because when your baby will get your personal feed than only be satisfied.

if i am wrong than forget me. But it is true on my part.

Don' t take this seriously. today' s kids are smart & fast. They do what they like it. If still you want him to have Breasts Milk than give it in a bottle. Temperature should be normal to Hot & cold, so i advise to take out your breasts milk and keep bottle in No Direct Sunlight Place.
