Gbasic guide for the correct feeding of a baby
Before 6 months
The babies newborns and during the first 6 months should be fed breast milk exclusively.
Breastfeeding offers countless benefits for the child, mother and family, and should be extended for two years or more. Breast milk is the best food and the most complete that the child under 6 months can receive. It provides you with all the elements you need for your healthy growth and development. Mother's milk is adapted to the needs and possibilities of her child and therefore is digested more easily than any other milk.
Breast milk contains all the fluid your baby needs for the first 6 months.. No need to supply or water, no juices, no other liquids.
Between 6 and 8 months
From 6 months it is necessary supplement breast milk, adding other foods little by little. The ideal is 2 or 3 meals a day, adding breast milk on demand.
The introduction of other foods should not be delayed beyond 6 months and you can start by giving once a day a few tablespoons of porridges combining such as potato, sweet potato and pumpkin.
A few weeks later they can be added small pieces of meat fat free and well crumbled.
From the seventh month you can add some others shredded vegetables, pulses, rolled oats, etc.. In addition to adding some dessert with milk in the style of rice pudding and semolina. It can also be added lightly toasted bread and dry biscuits type toast.
It is important to add a fruit and a vegetable per day
Between 9 and 12 months
From the ninth month, the regularity in meals is present and the 4 daily meals are known as breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. Always with the addition of breast milk on demand of the baby.
At this height I could already eat the fresh fruits, well washed and cut into small pieces. Tomato pulp, beetroot, spinach, grated corn and all fish, taking good care of removing the thorns.
The diet should be as varied as possible to prevent them from getting tired or bored of the same flavors; also, so that the boys learn to eat a little of everything.
Remember that it is not necessary add salt. The food already has enough natural salt and it is not advisable for children to get used to very salty flavors from a young age. The same goes for the sugar. Although children like this taste a lot, they should not get used to adding sugar in an exaggerated way.
The ideal drink throughout this period, apart from breast milk, is the drinking water
Food to avoid at this stage they are: cold cuts, hamburgers, sausages, highly seasoned foods, dairy products, and honey. The latter may contain substances that are toxic to the baby..
From the first year
By the first birthday, the baby is ready to eat a full medium plate. Later, at two years, you will need more or less a complete common plate.
Share food with the rest of the family it is a human activity with many important meanings. One of them is join the family, give and receive affection, feel valuable to others, and communicate. At the table they are not only learning to eat, but develop the habit of eating, develop new behaviors with the group, such as sharing, waiting, using the glass; etc.
It is important to take into account that the varied and pleasant presentation of the meals, as well as a calm atmosphere, stimulate in the child the desire to eat. Like the baby who tastes ice cream for the first time. But maybe it was the wrong food.
