Breastfeeding and Solid Foods

Bookmark and Share

Gearing up to feed your baby her first solid foods can sometimes feel daunting. When do you start? What do you give? Well my latest blog post for the giggle gab blog looks at these questions. Here’s the link, and an excerpt:

Put a bib on. It’s time to take the plunge and give your baby solid foods. By the way… that bib should be for you! You’ve never quite seen a mess like a baby and solid foods.

Around six months, most pediatricians will recommend that you start giving your baby solid foods in addition to breast milk. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, and then continuing to breastfeed until your baby is at least one year old, and longer if you wish.

So how do you do it? Go slow. Introduce new foods one at a time. Try that new food for a few days or more before adding another one. This can help you watch out for any allergic reactions. Click here for the rest of the story.
