How Much Protein Should My 9 Month Old Need
Not enough to count: A 9 month-old baby still gets most of his nutrition from breastmilk or formula. The baby foods and mashed up adult foods supply some extra calories, some of which is protein, but it's not worth counting the grams.

I'd never suggest it: While i applaud you efforts to share things that help you relax, i would never recommend a hot tub for an infant.If a kid is old enough to converse with you they can tell u they are dizzy or having other early sighs of over heating.
