What Can I Feed My 10 Month Old Baby
Food introduction: The general recommendation for food introduction in infants is rice cereal at 4 months, vegetables at 5 months, fruits and fruit juices at 6 months, finger foods & meats at 9 months. A three meal two snack schedule is the usual goal, but adapting this schedule to your family's normal routine should be fine as long as your baby is comfortable and gaining weight appropriately. ...Read more
8-9 months: Yogurt can be a healthy part of a baby's diet. Make sure you buy plain whole milk yogurt- babies need these fats, so no nonfat yogurt for them! also try to avoid buying the flavored varieties- plain is best and if you want to mix in some bananas or other fruit thats fine but the pre-flavored ones have too much added sugar for babies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Homeopathy and drops: Most doctors advise antibiotics for ear infections but research shows while they may relieve pain a bit sooner there is greater chance of recurrence. An old home remedy is crushing some garlic, warming it in olive oil and putting a few drops of the warm oil in her ear. My favorite treatment is homeopathy. Many mainstream pharmacies carry hyland's infant earache drops. See comment for more info:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Variety: Offering a full rainbow of colors and much variety helps continue to shape your child's palate. If your toddler doesn't like a food the first time try again a few days later. Research shows it may take as many as 16-20 tries before a child will consistently take a food. Offer a green, and orange veggie as well as fruit with every meal. Start to involve your child in grocery shopping/cooking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Finger foods: Your nine month old may be interested in finger foods at this point. Foods that you eat are often more interesting than jar foods. Avoid chocolate and egg white until a year. Appetite will vary day to day as growth slows a little. Continue massaging the gums with a soft cloth or brush as teeth erupt. Don't let baby fall asleep with a bottle or tooth decay will soon follow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Little interest: Your one year old may show little interest in foods at this age. Foods that you eat are often more interesting than jar foods. Appetite will vary day to day as growth slows a little. Offer milk, juices, cereal, veggies and meats. Continue massaging the gums. The only thing in a bottle at this stage should be water, until baby loses interest and discards it. This will help avoid cavities. ...Read more

Whatever YOU eat!: Babies at this age eat like adults... They eat a lot and drink a little. Under one, they drink a lot and eat a little. Now, your baby should eat what you eat (peanuts are delayed until 2 yo, others if you have food allergies in family). Babies can eat any other foods, as long as they are mashable or cut smaller than the size of a pea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 4 yr old autistic son constantly pushes his 10 month old sister. How can I get him to stop this?
Autism: If he is truly autistic, he will need lots of "occupational therapy" to teach him normal social skills. He should not be left alone with his baby sister but punishing him verbally will probably not help. You should seek skilled therapists in autistic children for guidance on behavioral training. ...Read more
Prune or pear juice: I usually recommend for babies of that age 1 ounce of undiluated prune or pear juice (available at the grocery store) for the baby one to two times a day as necessary. For recurrent constipation, some parents may need to give the baby a smaller amount daily to prevent constipation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sweating: Sweating in the infant can be normal during breastfeeding. Feeding is the exercise that the infant gets at this stage of development. If the baby has other problems in conjunction with sweating such as breathing fast, not eating well, not gaining weight, not urinating well, or not growing and developing; then have the physician see the baby. ...Read more
Also, is he truly : constipated? Babies don't need to have a bowel movement every day, so unless the stools are very hard, and infrequent and he is uncomfortable, you don't need to do anything. You can give him extra water in between his bottles of formula. If that doesn't help, please consult with his doctor. ...Read more
Probiotics: Early nutrition is vital for life-long gut health and immune system function. A vaginal birth and breast feeding start the gut with normal flora which balance and educate the immune system. Use of antibiotics and formula destroy normal flora and lead to long-term health problems. Start a 5 billion cfu dose probiotic with mutiple strains and use daily! food allergens are an issue - milk is common. ...Read more
