Feeding your baby: 3 tips to getting it right

Feeding your baby: 3 tips to getting it right

Feeding your baby should be a time of bonding and relaxation. Here are three things to remember to keep the process calm and enjoyable for both you and your baby.

  1. There is no deadline on breastfeeding. If your 15-month-old still loves to breastfeed and you do too, then stick with it. At around six months, your child is getting nutrients from solid foods, so his desire for breast milk may lessen.
  2. Breast milk or formula is enough to keep your new baby hydrated. The only time when you need to give your baby water is when she's sick and losing fluids through vomiting or diarrhea. In this case, consult with your pediatrician first.
  3. The first solid food can be a fruit or vegetable. In the past, parents were encouraged to start with rice cereal or another single grain cereal. We now know that a fruit or vegetable (think mashed banana or pureed avocado) is a great first food. Just make sure it's soft and has a single ingredient.

Feeding your baby is an ideal opportunity to bond with your baby, and also cultivate a tradition of happy eating with her mom!

My little one loves food. I find mixing fruit with cereal to be helpful.

Love the Joy

I love the joy he reflecs when it's eating time. Plus he likes more the Veggies than fruits.

Don't forget dads and partners! Starting our little one on solids has not only given me another level of bonding, but it has also given her father a new way to bond with her. As our daughter was exclusively breast fed until starting solids at six months, my husband now gets to spend more one-on-one time with her during feedings.

We've been eating our puree foods for almost a month now. Started out with just veggies and recently added fruits to food group.
