When can I feed my baby corn?

When can I feed my baby corn?

6 months: Most experts agree nowadays that the previously-held theories about limiting food exposure to babies to prevent food allergies were poppycock and actually caused more food allergies.

What amount of and what should I feed my baby?

What amount of and what should I feed my baby?

Depends on age: Infants triple their birth weight by one year of age. They go through several growth spurts in the first 4 months - so respond to their wants. For the first 5-6 months, babies should only get breast milk or formula - if your baby seems hungry after a feeding, give them a bit more until they are satisfied. At 5-6 months, start solids with one small meal a day. ...Read more

Should I feed my baby more if he is under weight?

Should I feed my baby more if he is under weight?

Yes: If your doctor deems that your baby is underweight for his height, the best solution is to try to feed more. If your baby is still in the infant stage, adding some additional breastfeeding sessions during the day (or formula) is a great option. If your baby is already consuming tablefoods, more healthy higher calorie foods will do the trick (baby food is not very high in calories, unfortunately). ...Read more

8 months: I recommend that parents avoid yogurt as a baby food until after 8 months and limit volume to 3-4 ounces. Yogurt contains intact cow's milk protein which should be avoided in large quantities. But as a chid approaches her first birthday milk protein naturally becomes a component of their diet. ...Read more
