Can I feed my 6 month old baby yogurt?

Can I feed my 6 month old baby yogurt?

8-9 months: Yogurt can be a healthy part of a baby's diet. Make sure you buy plain whole milk yogurt- babies need these fats, so no nonfat yogurt for them! also try to avoid buying the flavored varieties- plain is best and if you want to mix in some bananas or other fruit thats fine but the pre-flavored ones have too much added sugar for babies. ...Read more

Can I give my 5 month old baby pureed raw foods?

Can I give my 5 month old baby pureed raw foods?

Yes: I would question why so soon.In previous years when homemade formula from cow milk was routine, early feeding was necessary to improve nutrition. Now we understand breast or formula alone is fine & allows baby to develop motor skills that improve their transition to solids.I like to start @ 6m & making your own is a great way to avoid some of the additives & preservatives in commercial products. ...Read more

Can u Give A 5 Month Old Infant solid foods?

Can u Give A 5 Month Old Infant solid foods?

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

How long should baby feed from breast per feed? Baby 1 week old. I feel like i just feed her for 5, 10 minutes every 2 hrs. Want to excl. Breastfeed

How long should baby feed from breast per feed? Baby 1 week old. I feel like i just feed her for 5, 10 minutes every 2 hrs. Want to excl. Breastfeed

That's fine: In nature, babies eat whenever they are hungry. If a young baby nurses for 5-10 minutes on each breast, and then happily sleeps a couple of hours, that is fine... As long as the baby is growing. After the first week of life, a baby will grow about 1 ounce per day for a few weeks. If worried about not having enough milk, mom and baby can just see the pediatrician to check on the weight and feeding. ...Read more

Can u give a 5 week old baby cereal mixed in with formula night?

Can u give a 5 week old baby cereal mixed in with formula night?

Why ?: Thickened formula is occasionally used as a treatment of reflux. It does not help a baby sleep longer.In fact, any feeding just prior to sleep trains a kid to need feeding to settle to sleep any time they awaken at night and increases the risk of a long term sleep disturbance by 400%. ...Read more

Infant feeding: You can introduce solids at age 4 months to 6 months. It is not to replace his breast milk or formula but to introduce him to new tastes and textures.

My 10 week old daughter is exclusively formula fed. She still spits up a lot, and for a while after each feeding. How can I help her out?

My 10 week old daughter is exclusively formula fed. She still spits up a lot, and for a while after each feeding. How can I help her out?

Burp, upright: New babies, like 10 week old, spit alot. The valves that close their stomachs are not well developed, and they are also on liquid diets and eat frequently. Feed slowly, burp frequently and keep upright after feeds. There are special anti-reflux formulas that "thicken" the feeding, or alternatively, some docs like the parents to use cereal to thicken the feed. Talk to your ped! congrats on baby! ...Read more

How much cereal does a 5 months old baby have to eat a day ?

How much cereal does a 5 months old baby have to eat a day ?

None: A baby may start solid foods at age 6 months. There is usually no need to start sooner, but if parents want to try baby cereal sooner, it would be just for fun... meaning 0.5 ounce to 1 ounce, 1-3 times a day. Breastmilk (or formula) provides all the nutrition a baby needs, as he starts on solids, because he eats just a little bit of solids at first. ...Read more

How much cow milk per day is OK or safe to give to a one year and 4 month old baby. She like milk a lot?

I limit to ~500cc: Cow milk is designed to feed calves, and used without special processing can irritate the human gut.Excessive intake can trigger small amounts of blood loss from the gut and result in anemia.An older kid who stays around 500cc/day (8oz)will get all the calcium they need for bone growth without triggering anemia. ...Read more

My son is 4 months old. Can i skip cereal but still formula feed him and give him stage 1 gerber baby food?

Sure, but....: A well rounded diet would include the cereal, which in baby food is fortified with iron, something infants need in their diets. Also, encourage you talk to pediatrician about timing of solids at 4 months. Some evidence waiting until 6 months may have advantages the most important thing you are already doing -continuing breast milk or formula, which is the cornerstone of your infants diet right now. ...Read more
