Starting solid foods
The first and most important source of nutrients for the baby is milk. It provides everything your baby needs for proper growth and development. Your baby should still be allowed to nurse/be bottle-fed on demand, milk should still be the primary source of nutrition. Solids during the first year are only meant to complement breastmilk/formula. By introducing solids, you allow your baby to explore the world of new textures and tastes, in form of different kinds of veggies, meat or fruit. Solids during the first year are usually prepared in a form of purees.
- Start with one kind at a time
- Two ingredients at a time
