Adding solid foods: You can mash or puree most vegetables for you baby. Banana and avocado are easy foods for baby. Introduce a new food every few days.

Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more
