Si sen is 4 types of chinese herbs, I only know one of them is known as "lian zi", other 3 dunno.

Elias's first food is home made brown rice with si sen mixed. I went to a Chinese herbal store and said I need to do 1 kg of brown rice, they will decide for you how much of si sen to give you, maybe about $1.50 worth, I think.

Wash it, dry it in the sun and then grind in with the brown rice.

eu yang sang sells si sen brown rice, already mixed together, it's about S$8 per can, cant remember wt though, could be about 500 to 700 gm. not sure when can start giving si sen, so far i have not added much to the porridge about quarter teaspoon into a chinese bowl of porridge, instructions on the bottle says it can be made into a drink. havent tried that either

i havent tried si sen powder but brown rice, yes. it is good for baby because it releases energy slowly. brown rice is also very filling. cereal is ok to feed everyday - do u mean cereal as in baby rice cereal?

im 'skeptical' if im not sure what the ingredients are inside for bb. my bb has a lot of allergies. it is worth finding out what all the ingredients are in 'si sen' powder. does it sound like 'si sen' as in sacrifice in mandarin?

i fed him a few times of the si sen brown rice and he din finish it. so i gathered he does not like the taste. i tried feeding him the nestle brown rice and he took it well so i guessed the nestle is sweeter?

my son 4.5mth have already started on si sen brown brown which can be bought from ntuc. i add 3oz of it with 4oz milk (total 7oz) every 4hr. so far so gd. i tried giving it to him in between feed and find that its very filling for bb, cos once i gave him the rice itself, he could only finish 3oz of milk 2hr later.

andric: i heard nestle is sweeter comparede to other brands. my son dun take it.

Ya, Stazz, the nestle is sweeter cos when my in laws add milk into the sisen brown rice, bb took all.but with the nestle, no milk is required. but taking too much brown rice is causing bb constipation.
