Eat a balanced diet!: Google 'food pyramid' to learn about a healthy diet.

My son is 1 now and still doesn't eat solids hardly at all and is still on a lot of bottles should I introduce cows milk or stay with formula?
Try to lomit btls: I would make sure the kid is brought to the table and sits while others eat.Make sure your meal plan includes something you can mash up and offer him.Over time he will want to sample some of what others eat. I'd continue formula in a sippy cup and only offer water in bottles to protect his teeth.When he is taking one or two solids a day a switch to milk is ok but limit to 24 oz/d. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Please help my 6mons baby refused to drink milk after introduce to solid food.. Please help me.. Thanks?
Weaning?: Hello AllenR727 6 months breast is usually adequate in USA. Baby is refusing the breast and wanting solids is a good sign baby is growing fast now and needs more calories than he is getting. I would stop breast if he is refusing and place him on solids only. You could continue to offer breast for comfort, but once on solids they usually satisfy with solids alone. Cont baby vitamins thx ...Read more
Since starting solids my 6month old grandson eats 3oz less from each of his bottles (breast milk). He loves his solids (fruit, veggies and yogurt), but my daughter is very concerned about his losing the breast milk nourishment. He is in the 7th percentile
Solids not important: Breast milk is the most important & balanced nutrition for any kid under 1y if not older. There is no need ( other than cultural pressure) to introduce solids to do anything more than teach the kid to explore texture & learn a new feeding method.Solids generally have lower calorie density & quantity should be kept small in any lean kid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My child is 1.5 years old and he is not eating anything solid and drinking only milk. Mother thinks it is due to worms in his stomach. Is it possible?
Unlikely: He seems to be getting most of his calories from milk so he is not hungry. He may also have some sensory issues that cause him to have difficulty learning to eat solids. Consultation with a speech pathologist experienced with children can be of great value. Intestinal parasites usually cause significant diarrhea along with weight loss. ...Read more
Variable: This is variable but a common question. Generally infants don't need more than 32 oz of milk per day and this will decrease depending on how much food the infant eats. At a year many infants are taking about 15-20 oz per day in my experience. Some infants will eat more food than others but all will naturally adjust milk intake dependent on food intake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My niece is on formula milk & solids. When should I stop feed her formula milk? She is 5 going 6 years old
At what age does solid food, not milk, become more vital for a baby? When can I stop worrying that my baby is getting enough ounces of milk?
Teeth: I believe our body tells us what we need. When teeth come in it is time to start bringing food in. Breast milk is fine but i tell my new moms that when a child has teeth to chew 9 to 10 months is a good time to start bringing in rice and other vegetables. But only bring in 1 every week or 2 so she can watch for adverse reactions. Breast feeding the first 9-12 months is the best option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
