Which Fruit Should I Introduced First To My Baby
Is it true that baby should be introduced first to meat, then to fruits and vegetables when start solid?
Mostly opinion: I give parents some structure to work with, but to my mind, there is no firm nutritional reason--mostly just opinions--to suggest any sequence is better than any other. It has nothing to do with taste, digestibility, allergy risk, etc. The main reason for solids is to teach your baby to handle them (orally), and demonstrate tolerance for a variety of foods. I suggest one new one every few days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When should yoghurt be introduced to a baby's diet? Mine has been eating fruit and veg 2 times a day now for around a month. She is just over 6 months
Yoghurt is a milk: Product that's okay to give now. Check labels for sugar content. She can drink water from an open-mouthed cup held by you at 9 mos & hold a two-handled cup at 12 mos., when you can wean if you choose. Just limit milk & milk products to 16-21 oz./day to avoid constipation & anemia. Sippy cups with spouts keep the tongue forward; " commuter " & open cups promote lip closure, good for speech. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am a nigerian, can you advice me on the kind of fruit to eat regularly that will not have side deffect on my baby boy, his now about 3weeks old?
Fruit: I think you can eat any fruit you wish, breast feed, and not affect your baby. Breast milk is very healthy for an infant. ...Read more
No: The answer is no.If breast-feeding is not possible, infant formulas contain all of the required nutrients needed by healthy infants. Juices have no nutritional value and should not be used.They provide unneccessary calories and will probably interfere with normal feeding.Occasionally pediatricians will use juice as a natural laxative for a constipated baby, but otherwise juice should not be used. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My baby is 2 months old and fed with formula. When should I start or add complementary foods? As for example fruit, vegetables?
Unnecessary : 50 years ago infants were fed solids early & frequently to make up for deficiencies in the evaporated milk formulas moms made at home. Today early feeds are an antiquated practice & do not add to the child's nutrition. Today solids are viewed as a tutorial to transition baby to the table. Starting at 6m as the tongue thrust fades & baby begins to sit is early enough. ...Read more
My baby is a little older than 6 months.She eats puréed fruit in the am and vegetables in the pm. My ped suggested pedialite for constipation. risks?
I gave my 7mnth daughter yogurt,but some ppl told me it's harmful for babies less than 1 year.
Is it true?
Can I give her yogurt-fruit puree?
Not harmful: They may have misunderstood the pediatricians recommendation to feed babies either breastmilk or formula for at least a year, and not start whole milk until after a year. An occasional yogurt does not hurt, just don't count on it as a main source of milk protein.
