I weaned my baby from breastfeeding. What will i give my weaned baby to make him eat food and be strong and healthy. Thanks?

After that you can give homogenized milk, but limit the amount to no more than 24 oz a day. If you give more milk, chance of developing iron deficiency is very high. The baby also should eat jarred baby foods, increasing the volume gradually. Start with vegetables such squash, green beans, and liver, beef. ...Read more

There are no nutritional superiorities at that age, when they have a collection of table foods diluting the effects. If the kid needs comforting/nurturing i would look to a different way to accomplish that goal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been feeling under the weather ( physically, getting sick more often) since I weaned breastfeeding. What should I do?
Besides weaning off breastfeeding slowly so I'm not in pain. What else can help dry up my milk quicker??
Can't have both: if you want to have less pain simply follow the course you're on. Taking medication to dry up the supply is unnecessary and probably NOT less painful ...Read more
