In my opinion, one of the most important moments in a woman’s life is being a mother, giving birth to a child. It is unforgettable and difficult to overcome for other moments that a woman may experience; for me nothing like giving life to a human being.
A child changes your existence, inevitably becomes an indispensable pillar in your world, it is the most important thing and therefore, from the first moment you hold him in your arms, you are filled with concern that he is well and does not happen to him nothing to baby. This causes that during the first years you dedicate almost all your time to their attention and care.
Thanks to the existing books and magazines on this subject, you overwhelm your mind with information to discover what are the tips, recommendations and indications that must be followed and make sure that the newborn grows and develops without any type of problems.
Many are the issues to consider with a baby so that everything goes smoothly in their care. The bathroom, the hours that the little one should sleep, what is the most appropriate clothing, keep body areas clean and healthy such as the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, butt. And also food, which is the most important part of caring for the child during its first year of life.
We must pay close attention to feeding our baby. It must be essential and necessary to know which are the most suitable foods and meals and for this it is essential to understand the basis on which the feeding of a newborn depends.
We are going to try to help you with some tips on feeding a baby.
During the first six months of life, the basic and essential food of the baby will be breast milk. The newborn will depend on the mother’s breastfeeding, so it is very important to take into account several things when breastfeeding. The area must be very clean, scrupulously observe the times of the day and feeding times to give the baby the breastfeeding he really needs. The latter is very important and in the event that the mother cannot provide all the milk that her body demands, a good option is breast pumps. If this is your case, you can resort to specialized websites on this subject such as breast pump.info where you can find all the information to clarify any doubts you may have on this matter.
From the fourth month, the so-called “Complementary feeding” should be included, whose mission is to cover the energy needs for the baby to develop and grow properly.
By the sixth month of life, parents will have to substitute milk for the components of the complementary diet. It is best to do it little by little. We must be very attentive to the tolerance that the baby experiences with these changes within their eating habits.
What are the food supplements and when should we give them to the baby? Fruits (from the 4th month), chicken (from the 5th – 6th month), veal (from the 6th – 7th month), fish (8th month) and eggs (9th – 10th month).
Solid foods must be offered in very small pieces or very well crushed. Help you chew food properly and take breaks between bites.
Taking into account these tips we should not have any problems or complications with the feeding of our little one, but always keep in mind that the most important thing is to go to the pediatrician who will indicate the most appropriate advice and indications for the feeding of the little one. Following the appropriate recommendations, we will see how our son grows and grows, and we will always see him grow up with a smile on his face.
A big hug and see you in my next post.
