Introducing solids: which comes first? Bottle or baby food?

Introducing solids: which comes first? Bottle or baby food?

Infant feeding: Solids should be given in by a spoon not bottle. Solid foods are started at 4-6 mos old. That first food should be full of nutrients esp iron and that food is pureed red meat. There are no studies to prove that rice cereal should be the first food introduced. The current trend is to start meats, vegetables, fruits & cereals in no sequence. Try a new food for a few days first before trying another. ...Read more

When can toddler eat solid food after tonsillectomy?

When can toddler eat solid food after tonsillectomy?

8-10 days.: The critical period for healing after a tonsillectomy in the toddler age group is about 8-10 days. I believe solid food in very small pieces can be eaten at any time. But popsicles, milkshakes, custard, jello, gator aid are my recommendations for the first 10 days. A high carbohydrate, high protein and low fat diet is my recommendation for the first 8-10 days. ...Read more

When should babies eat baby food if bottle fed?

When should babies eat baby food if bottle fed?

Not necessary early: During the 50's & 60's when moms made their own cow milk based formula, it was important to feed solids to make up for the deficiencies of cow milk.Today the breast or commercial formula fed babies need no solids the first year.

6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?

6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?

Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read more

Are BPA-free canned food safe to eat?

Are BPA-free canned food safe to eat?

Not necessarily: While BPA is hazardous because of its hormone-disrupting estrogenic effects, the problem is that cans without BPA use alternatives like BPF, BPS, vinyl and polyester that may be as or more toxic than BPA and it is hard to learn what alternatives are being used!

When to give a baby baby food and solids?

When to give a baby baby food and solids?

6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive. ...Read more
