Baby feeding at 6 months and 1 week
Regardless of the fact that until now it has been breastfed or fed with milk formulas, at 6 months of age, the baby begins to diversify the diet. You may have started it even earlier, especially if you fed it with powdered milk.
In general, the first foods with which to start diversification are baby cereals. These are easier to enter in the menu, because they do not have a very pronounced and very different taste from milk. Cereals, unlike other solid foods, are less likely to be rejected by the mild-mannered babies at this age.
Only after the introduction of cereals, you can give them past fruits or vegetables, because they taste more pronounced and different from milk, and must be gradually assimilated by the taste buds of the child. At first, try to introduce a new food a week into the baby's menu, so as not to expose it to too many tastes at once.
Remember that milk remains the main source of food until the age of 1 year. Therefore, it is important to consult your pediatrician before beginning the diversification and to find out how much your baby will eat solid foods and how much milk you should give them in a day. Each child grows differently and has different nutritional needs.
There are no recommendations for portions and general-valid quantities, as they are established according to the parameters of the child's growth, health, nutritional needs, but also other factors.
