So, do not wait any more for someone to tell you what to feed you 1 year old baby, here is it in front of you. Just focus with me, and you shall have all you need to know.
In the article, I will not talk about the direct 1 year old baby food, but I will separate the phases according to the age of the baby by months. You might be asking why so? And the best 1 year old baby food can be only breastfeeding, but do you know that it is not sufficient and not enough. So you need more. And here are the food to have.
The age of 0 to 6 months old;
In this part of the 1 year old baby food, the baby do not need any other food, but his/her mother’s breastfeeding. There is also the number 1 produced milk, not the number 2 (you can ask anybody about this, pharmacy or doctor or any expert). Ignore the number 2 since the baby did not yet get 6 months old. A for the solid food, everyone is recommending the mothers to start feeding their babies that food until they get 4 to 6 months. And it is highly advised that you consult a doctor before starting the feeding. You need to know some physical signs that prove whether the baby is ready for that kind of food or not yet. Those signs are such as; sitting and getting up with just little help, good controlling of his neck and head, and also his ability to swallow the food.
- Never compare your baby to other his age babies. Remember that it is not necessary for babies to start having the solid food in the same age.
- Do not oblige your baby to eat if he turns his face away. He might be not yet ready to eat food from the spoon. And once you start, ignore the foods that cause irritation or some healthy disorders during the breastfeeding, such as; grain, nuts, pistachios, liver, fish, eggs, cow milk, and some kinds of cheese.
