Miah is finally 6 months!! I introduced her to some Stage 1 foods to see if she was all interested outside of the breastmilk.
At around 6 months, your baby might be ready to be introduce to different combinations such as; meat puree, mashed beans, and fruit and vegetables puree.
Variety adds nutrients to your babies diet. Meat purees and mashes beans have protein, zinc, and iron. Fruit and vegetables puree have fiber and a mix of important vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A (from beta-carotene) or vitamin C.
And also when you introduce different flavors, it can help babies accept new foods for in the future. NO PICKY EATERS!!- right? This can establish good eating habits.
Make sure that when you introduce new foods you do it once at a time. I would wait for about 3 days to start a different variety just in case something gives them complications. It’s easier to spot a problem.
Your baby might also not accept new foods right away but stay patient. It may take up to 10 times to get those frown to turn upside down.
**Remember that every baby is different so make sure to consult your doctor before introducing food.
