As a nursing mother, are you excited about transitioning your infant to solid foods, but equally worried about how to start and which foods to start with? You may be bombarded with suggestions from friends, family members and colleagues on how and when to stop breastfeeding and start giving solids to your little ones. With all those suggestions, do you find yourself confused? Well, our content partner, My Little Moppet, is here to guide you through the entire process of weaning or complementary feeding.
As per both Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), infants can be introduced to complementary foods once they are 6 months old. In fact, a recent study by the AAP has found that introduction of solid foods before the age of 4 months increases the risk of obesity. However, introducing all the food varieties between the 17th and 27th week of life decreases the risk of acquiring chronic diseases such as allergies and coeliac disease.
But it is also important for you to remember that babies may not be able to digest a variety of foods. So, don’t be overenthusiastic but ensure that you introduce food varieties slowly.
