How much baby food should 7mth eat?when will food start to be main source of nutritional value?

How much baby food should 7mth eat?when will food start to be main source of  nutritional value?

Not much: The reason for baby foods at that age is to introduce a new method, not overtake the value of breast milk or formula. A tablespoonful or two is fine for starters. If the kid seems to want more, that is one of the goals, but they should not drop their other intake below 16-20 oz. By 1 yr, they should have a balance between the two. ...Read more

With a baby with eczema how do you know which foods the baby is allergic to, without trying out 30 different foods?

With a baby with eczema how do you know which foods the baby is allergic to, without trying out 30 different foods?

You don't.: First of all, food allergy is not the only cause of eczema, by a long shot, despite what you read on the web. Assuming your baby does have a food allergy, there's really no way around trial and error to find the culprit. But before you go to all that trouble, you might want to see a dermatologist, who may be able to pinpoint another cause of your child's eczema. ...Read more

Does using bug sprays right before pregnancy potentially harm sperm & egg and harm the fetus? Heard it may cause brain cancer to unborn baby. Thanks!

Does using bug sprays right before pregnancy potentially harm sperm & egg and harm the fetus? Heard it may cause brain cancer to unborn baby. Thanks!

No: It is unlikely to remain in your system very long after exposure. Some bug sprays are considered unsafe in pregnancy, but the risks are low. What is more, certain insect-born illnesses are potentially more harmful, so you'll have to weigh your risks and benefits based on your location. I usually recommend deet-free bug sprays. ...Read more

How do I introduce baby to solid food without my fear of choking? I plan on all homemade food. Terrified of giving anything too chewy or hard. Advice?

Choking: You don't say how old baby is. But if he is ready, start wit soft food blended to smooth consitancy. Small spoonfuls. Have him sitting up straight in high chair and watch him closely as he swallows and spits out. Don't force him. Once you relax and he gets used to it, you can try thicker food...And so on. Good luck. ...Read more

I was taking out nuts from their packet and the toast heated the packet. Cn this temperature n exposure cause harm. Can heating plastic cause cancer?

Absolutely not: The story about heating plastic producing cancer-causing chemicals was made up out of nothing in the early days of the internet. It takes only a moment to make up a lie and present oneself as a humanitarian defending the reader from danger and wicked science. It's all a money-maker. If it were true, some research piranha would have made a name for himself by now. ...Read more
