Early introduction of cereals may introduce sensitivity to cereal proteins. You should wait till the baby is six months old before introducing cereals. ...Read more

I feed my 4 month old baby near 10 to 12 times a day. He always hungry. May i give any solid food to him?

Define hungry: You don't need permission to feed your baby.We don't recommend solids before 6m but this varies with the doc. If your kid consumes > 32 oz formula/day, solids may be needed. Some misread a kids finger or pacifier use as indication of hunger, it is not. The pleasure of chewing, sucking, nail biting, etc. Is a self soothing skill. If your kid is fluffy you may want to slow the feeds. ...Read more

My 10 month old doesn't like to eat baby food or solid food. What should I do?

My 10 month old doesn't like to eat baby food or solid food.  What should I do?

Serve it: Ask him- do you want this food? If he says no ignore it and serve the next person. If he takes the food and plays with it, say "don't you want it"? Take it away, put it in the fridge and warm it for the next meal. If he complains of hunger later say "well, you didn't eat lunch, you will have to await dinner" no substitutes. Hunger pays off.
