Weaning & Nutrition

 
YOUR WEANING GUIDE
STAGE I (Breast-milk is still the main source of nutrition for your baby, whilst he learns to take pureed foods)
AGE: 6 to 8 MONTHS
SIGNS OF READINESS:
1 SUPPORTS HEAD AND NECK
2 SITS WITH SUPPORT
3 SHOWS INTEREST IN FOOD THAT YOU ARE EATING
4 SEEMS TO BE HUNGRY AFTER REGULAR FEEDS
FEEDING GUIDELINES
1 SELECT A CALM AND QUIET TIME TO START SOLIDS FOR YOUR BABY
2 GIVE SOLIDS WHEN BABY IS HUNGRY AND NOT AFTER BREAST FEEDING
3 EARLY MORNINGS AND NIGHTS ARE NOT A GOOD TIME TO START SOLIDS
4 USE A RUBBER TIPPED, FLAT SPOON TO START FEEDING (IT REDUCES THE CHANCES OF HURTING THOSE DELICATE GUMS)
5 GIVE ONE TYPE OF FOOD RATHER THAN MIXED MEALS SO THAT BABY GETS USED TO A SINGLE FLAVOUR MORE EASILY
6 START WITH ONLY ABOUT A TABLESPOON OF SOLID FOOD A DAY
7 IF BABY IS NOT ACCEPTING THE SPOON, USE YOUR FINGERS. THEY LOVE THE NON-FOREIGN FEEL OF THE MUM'S FINGERS
8 DILUTE SOLIDS TO A POURING CONSISTENCY WITH BREAST MILK
FOR YOU
TAKE IT EASY. ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY. YOUR BABY WILL TAKE TIME TO GET USED TO SOLID FOODS. STAY CALM.
ENJOY THE LEFT OVER BABY FOOD, THEY ARE SCRUMPTIOUS AND HEALTHY
