It’s so interesting when your baby gets curious about food. She tries to grab your plate making it almost impossible to eat your own meal! This behavior typically starts around the six-month mark. At this point, it’s time for you to start mixing it up with solid foods.
What is it that your 6 Months old baby should eat?
………………We have the answers!
We have all the information about what you need to feed your 6-month-old child.
When am I allowed to start feeding my child solid food?
Make sure that your child can hold his head and sit properly in a highchair before you start solid foods. Always monitor the mealtime of your baby.
In addition to breast milk, as you start sharing the meal together, you can start offering your baby many different foods.
What’s my 6-month-old child going to eat?
Some of the first goods given to children are oatmeal and brown rice cereal. So, bland choices encourage your baby to use the spoon to practice or learn how it functions in her language.
Let your baby feed himself with the adding of dry cereal or grain bubbles.
When your baby has cereal comfort, offer:
- Simple and processed fruit (banana, mango, apple sauce, blueberry, avocado)
- Cooked Pure vegetables (carrots, squash, sweet potatoes)
- Pure protein (chicken, beef, fish)
- Small amounts of canned coconut milk (Keep in mind that your child should not have cow’s milk until he’s at least 12 months old).
- Scrambled eggs
How much is my child allowed to eat?
Children around the age of six months will eat about 6-12 ounces of pure baby food a day. But it depends on your child for the exact amount.
