introduction of complementary foods while breastfeeding
introduction of complementary foods while breastfeeding - before that for a long time - think recently given birth mom.It is said that foreign kids are growing rapidly.But believe me, its growing even faster.Here, more recently, the lump was brought home from the hospital, and he has won a large and already knows how to sit, and the first tooth came out, and my father pulled the spoon, and my mother's cup of seeds.As it suggests that, say, an adult I have, I feed adult food.But what is it, this "adult" food for the baby?
Every mother before you start typing in the lure of porridge, vegetables and other foods, probably thought: when to start?and how much is needed for the first time?And most importantly - what products are safe?Everything in order.
Until six months of age the baby does not need any other food other than breast milk or adapted formula (if the child is bottle-fed).Some people believe that bottle-feeding time comes earlier, but still recommended to wait for at least 5 months.At this age a small stomach is already emerged, got all the useful and necessary bacteria and is ready to receive more solid food.Mom should observe the child, his well-being and mood.Be sure to consult a pediatrician and sensible to take into account its recommendations.But remember, the introduction of complementary foods while breastfeeding to 6 months - optimally.
When selecting products, you first need to focus on their child, his tendency to allergies and as chair.Also take into account the country of residence and the season when the lure is introduced.Because in our country the child is accustomed to eat zucchini or apple than a banana or avocado.To choose the first meal or vegetables, or fruit, or porridge.
If you introduce complementary foods while breastfeeding in the form of vegetables, it is advisable to choose a green or white fruit.Most often this zucchini or cauliflower.These vegetables are least likely to cause allergic reactions, easily perceived by the body itself and the crumbs.If you decided to start with fruit, here too, we adhere to green and white scheme.The best option would be an apple or a pear.We must remember that in the first vegetable and fruit puree should not have salt, sugar and other additives and ingredients.
If the choice leans towards cereals, it is necessary to know that the first should be dairy-free and gluten-free (low-allergenic) porridge, such as rice, buckwheat and corn.These cereals can be done at home by grinding dry cereal in a coffee grinder and diluted with water, breast milk or formula.
If food choice decided, it's time to think about how much you need this food to give the child.Lure is desirable to give up in the morning before the main feeding to the child was hungry, then it is with great pleasure try unfamiliar foods.Begin to introduce a new product with half a teaspoon.After the meal we continue feeding the usual way, that is, give the breast or a mixture.Be sure to look at the baby's reaction, skin health.If there is no change, continue to enter the same product, with each following day by increasing the amount twice.For example, today gave half a spoon of mashed potatoes, one tomorrow, the next day two, two days later four, and so on, leading to a portion of the required number.If the apparent allergic reaction, stop feeding up to the full recovery of the child, and only then begin to enter a different vegetable, fruit or cereal.
little later turn comes to meat, milk products, egg yolk.Remember that the correct introduction of complementary foods - the key to a child's health, his good immunity, mood and well-being.
