Over how many months you can begin to lure a child
Over how many months it is possible to lure a child, so as not to harm the child's body?Many parents underestimate the importance of the correct start time of weaning from "stuff" your child "vitamins" almost from birth.Why is the early introduction of complementary foods while breastfeeding and artificial is bad?
The fact that the body of a child under 6 months, still not fully grown and can not adequately respond to the new food.The ideal age to enter the first complementary foods while breastfeeding - 6 months.Sometimes pediatricians may recommend and the earlier introduction of cereals and vegetables, due to poor weight gain or due to artificial or mixed feeding when the baby really can not have enough of certain vitamins.Therefore, the question to how many months you can lure the child on artificial feeding, pediatricians are not so categorical and allowed to give kids cereals, vegetables and fruit juices with about 5 months of life.
In general, up to 6 months, breastfeeding breast milk completely meets all the needs of the growing organism.Earlier, in the USSR, there was a theory according to which the child is 1 month of life, in addition to breast milk, began to receive supplements in the form of juices and purees.Today this theory is refuted by the collapse, as pediatricians all over the world have long shown that the early introduction of complementary foods is not only an additional burden for the fragile digestive system of the baby, but also an increased risk of developing allergies.But some doctors and did argue for the introduction of juice only after the first year of baby's life.
So, there are some specific rules of complementary feeding:
- age of the child is at least 6 months (with full breastfeeding);
- absence of a child during the period of introduction of complementary foods colds, diathesis (rash and other allergic manifestations);
- If you have any allergy symptoms, the product should stop giving your child the following 2 weeks, preferably refuse entry of any new products;
- necessary to pay attention not only to the appearance of the baby rash or irritation on the body, but also his mood and behavior as a whole;
- lure, usually given in the first half of the day.
There are general guidelines.Thus, it is possible to lure the baby cereals and need before vegetables, if he has a lack of weight.And kids who are prone to constipation, and with good weight gain, better to give preference to the contrary vegetables and fruits.
So, remember that the main consultant on the issue with the number of months you can lure a child breastfed (or artificial) and the type of food to be a pediatrician, but not your mother, grandmother or girlfriend.Be carefull!A reasonable approach to the introduction of complementary foods first - is the key to the health of your baby.
