Right Food For Healthy Infants

Shyamala Sathiyaseelan

Input is directly related to output. This is especially true in the case of your baby!

Feeding the right food to infants is important. Thankfully there are measures and milestones to help you along the way. Weaning your baby is advised after the baby is six month old. However, if for relevant reasons, you decide to wean your infant earlier, there are guides on how you can accomplish the same.

The seventh month is the best time to wean an infant. It is important to start your bundle of joy on liquids other than mother’s milk. By the eighth month, your little one is familiar with the tastes of various purees. She is now ready for variety in flavors. In the ninth month, your little princess is ready for a whole new diet. In the tenth, eleventh and twelfth months, she is ready for new additions to her already wide diet.

Diets are not for food alone. “The more you talk and read to your baby, the more you feed the language. Not only to master the world of lexis, but also to inculcate the habit of expressing oneself out and so to kick off timidity,” says myhealthykiddo.com.
