Doctor insights on:
What Should I Do If My Baby Does Not Like The New Foods I Am Having Him Try
Persistence: It's important that you offer each new food at least 5- 10 times before you can say your baby doesn't like it. Remember that everything is new to a baby and most babies get used to the taste after a while.See 2 more doctor answers
No endorsement Here: I believe it is well stated on this site, but we do not provide any endorsement of any safe product that humans can purchase and use. Medicine would be fully neutral and have no opinion on your question.
Need for growth/dvp: Infants have few needs for function. They need to be awake for feeding and it helps you bond if they acknowledge you, but their main job is to grow bigger and dramatically improve control over their marvelous body.This takes sleep and nutrition.As they enter their teen years again they grow faster and need more sleep, while adults may get by on little.Its all part of the balance in human growth.
Depends...: Depends on age and other factors. In general, pureed vegetables and cereals come before meats and dairy (other than breast or formula); single ingredients before mixed; no-no's include: chunks (choking hazard), honey (botulism), eggs/fish/seafood (more allergenic), salt and sugar (addictive), and juices (juice is a fruit from which all good stuff has been removed.).See 1 more doctor answer
Breast milk/formula: are all that is needed until infants are at least 4-6 months old. Early introduction of solids has been associated with food allergies and over feeding and obesity. Breast feeding protects against diarrhea illness Also, some high fiber foods may cause diarrhea, gas, cramps. After 6 months, milk may not provide enough iron for blood and muscle growth, so foods that contain iron are recommended.
Different reasons: Some babies may be born with anatomical defects requiring emergency surgery like certain heart malformations or a hole in the diaphragm allowing abdominal organs to push up and take up lung space. Certain neurological problems may also require surgery, like spina bifida or hydrocephalus. These are just a few examples.
Poor development : Of thyroid gland. Thyroid hormone replacement will be needed lifelong. With proper treatment, most of them do well.
Soft: Soft foods such as fruits and vegetables , cheese and yogart, pasta breads etc.
Interesting question: If your only reason for asking is just because you want your kid to be tall, then skip past what i say because it won't help you. If you're asking about food making an infant taller because you're interested in making the infant healthier, follow this link to livestrong: http://www.Livestrong.Com/article/69870-kids-grow-taller/.
Unsafe foods: Do not give honey to an infant under 1 yr of age due to risk of botulism. Other unsafe foods include raisins, hot dogs cut in circles that are choking hazards. Hard foods the size of a infant's finger are also choking hazards. Avoid soy, cow or goat milk in babies under 1 yr of age. Use instead breastmilk or formula for infants under one year of age.See 1 more doctor answer

Y here in canada they recommend to introduce food to babies at 6 months? Any everywhere else they start at 4 months? When should I start?
Food for babies: I usually go by 3-6 months or 13-16 pounds as guidelines to introduce solid foods. The aap recommends 6 months but if a child is not satisfied with breast or fomula its time to feed him instead od torturing your child and/or yourself.See 1 more doctor answer
Pacifiers: Yes please! Pacifiers are wonderful in my opinion. They satisfy babies need to suck, they sooth baby, they help mom and dad. They don't hurt teeth. Best of all there are studies which show a decreased incidence of sudden infant death with their use. This doctor and grandpa endorses them!
Immediately: Studies show a preference for mothers voice by age 3 hours and dads by the end of the day. These are often a subtle like the flicker of an eyelid.See 1 more doctor answer
I have 3month premature twince babies can I give other food like serelac, fruits luiqued etc. I think not enougth milk?
No food, please!: The babies are too young for cereal or baby food. They are growing very quickly, and it can be hard for your milk supply to keep up. Try drinking more water and nursing more often; nurse both twins at once if you can, as that will increase your supply more quickly. You can have your doctor weigh the babies; if you must, supplement with infant formula, but that may not be necessary.
Allergy test: We allergists prefer a prick skin test and we do it in the office and it is relatively painless. There are also blood tests, but depending on the lab you go to and the technique they use, some are not that reliable.See 1 more doctor answer
My 4 months babies electrophoresis report is hb a2=2.4, hb a=4.2, hb f=68.4, hb e=25. Is iron based foods harmful for her?
Possibly: As i indicated in my previous post to you, your child has hemoglobin e / beta+ thalassemia. Some patients like your child will have problems with iron overload, even if they are not chronically transfused. For those patients, excess iron in the diet can be harmful. Please see a doctor with knowledge about hemoglobin e / beta+ thalassemia.
