Maha's 9th Month Photoshoot

 This month was totally hectic for me..I didn't find time to arrange a photoshoot for maha. I was kind of worried. But couple weeks back, we went for a exhibition here, i found this cute headbands there. I got few of those in different colour for maha. When i looking at those, i suddendly remembered a black dress which i got for maha from chennai. So immediately put that dress on maha with the band and got into action. These are the pics which i took. It wont be perfect, because there was no proper lighting at that time. But as usual love my lil princess expressions...

Solid Food Schedule for 9 Month Baby / Baby Feeding Schedule for Solids Foods / Feeding Schedule for 9 Month Baby

This is my favorite picture of maha on her naming ceremony
YAY, YAY, YAY..Maha got her second teeth too...Now i can start giving her finger foods..She needs that only, she want to grab everything in her hands and feed her all by herself. Love to see that tiny hands grabbing foods and taking it into the tiny mouth and chewing.

This month i introduced a lots of new foods to maha. I was quite happy that she can chew her food properly before swallowing it. I gave different finger foods for her. She happily accepted it. But never over do it, there is time. Now lets see the food schedule..

9:00 to 9:30 AM : Due to her over play time the previous night, she wakes up late these days. As usual i start her day with formula milk or breast milk. But i reduce the amount of it, because soon i will feed her a little more amount of idly that previous month. As a note, idly or dosa are her main part in breakfast. As usual i mix idli with some hot water and feed her. 

Her sleeping time has reduced a lot these days..I never can assume the time she sleeps so i skipping that here..

I feed her some finger foods these days. I give a small stick of apple, or par cooked carrots sticks, a small stick or cucumber. I make everything into sticks because she can grab that in her hands and suck it. ( I will surely do a separate post on finger foods )

I feed her some juices too, this time the veggies and fruits are juiced raw, since her digestive system has developed a little more..

12:00 to 12:30 PM : Her lunch is during this time. I feed her rice as usual. I make sure i drizzle some ghee over it. Check out my khichdi recipe. I make sure i feed lots of water inbetween. After lunch i am sure she will sleep atleast a little..

3.00 to 3:30 PM : I make sure i hard boil a egg and feed her a eggyolk. I just mash it up and feed her in small mouthful along with water. This is her early snack. Eggs are quite a filling and nutrition rich meal.

5.00 to 5.30 PM : As a evening tea for us, i feed her a healthy portion of sago kanji or vegetable soup or ragi porridge or formula milk or sooji kheer. ( I will post the recipe for sago kanji and veg soup soon)

7.00 to 7.30 : I always go for Idly or steamed dosa which is mixed with some hot water.

If she keep on crying or feels hungry at night. I feed her with formula milk. Inbetween these schedule in keep on feeding her mother feeding. I dont give much of formula milk, mother feeding is what i prefer. And after 8.00 PM i dont feed any solid foods, i feed her mother feeding only. I feed her lots of water.

Kiss Attack For the Poor Thing from Her MAMA
Sorry for my absence these many days...No i wasn't busy, but kind of lazy..YES LAZY..Today i took up all my laziness and throwed it away in garbage and decided to write in this blog..

Most of you started asking me to post schedule for 8,9 and 10 month baby. Maha is on her 10th month now. This is what i fed her on her 8th, 9th and 10th month. I will post all the three post today and be sure to check it out...

Morning Breakfast : Maha's waking time started getting inregular, somedays she wakes up at 7.00 AM someday she get up to 9.00 AM. Whatever time she gets up, i start her day with formula milk. Then she plays a lot with her toys and jumps over her papa. if she wakes up at 7.00 AM or before than she falls asleep so quickly. But when she wakes up at 9.00 AM she doesn't go to bed as easily. So at 10.00 am i feed her idli or steamed dosa. I mix idli or dosa with hot water and feed her. This will keep her full for a little time. Now she can sleep with her tummy full for a hour or so.

Brunch : She wakes up at 12.00 PM or something like that, At this time i feed her some fruits puree or mashed banana or mashed potato. She takes it happily. I allow her to play a lot...

Lunch: Her lunch timing is usually 1.30 PM..I feed her a healthy hearty rice meal which has lots of veggies and spinach. You can check all my khichdi recipe here.. After having lunch, she gets back to sleep because i would have given her a warming shower before feeding..So she sleeps for few hours peacefully.

Evening snacks : She wakes up at 4 PM or something like that. I would have made a warming bowl of ragi porridge or banana porridge or oats. She haves it happily. Now time to play. 

Early Dinner : After her snacks she sleeps someday or stay awake. At 6.30 PM i feed her some biscuits or i give her a small piece of that. Since she got her teeth and she can chew very well now.

Dinner : Her Dinner time is somewhat between 7.30 PM to 8.00 PM. I always go for Idly or steamed dosa which is mixed with some hot water.

If she keep on crying or feels hungry at night. I feed her with formula milk. Inbetween these schedule in keep on feeding her mother feeding. I dont give much of formula milk, mother feeding is what i prefer. And after 8.00 PM i dont feed any solid foods, i feed her mother feeding only. I feed her lots of water.
