WEANING

————

 

Introducing your baby to solid food is called weaning, should be started when your baby is around 6 month of the age. Weaning time should be fun time.

It’s third most important step in your baby development after Breast feeding & vaccination and it can be fun to explore new flavour & texture. To begin with how much baby taking is less important than getting them used to eating.

 

When to start?

 

For first 6 month, baby should be breakfast exclusive as baby digestive system is not develop fully to accept solid food. Still weaning is personal decision & should be based on what is best for your children. Most mothers choose to wean their baby at age of 4 to 7 month.

 

Sign when your baby is ready for weaning :

 

1 ) baby stay in sitting position.

2 ) can coordinate hand – eye & hand – mouth movement so that baby can look at food, pick up & put them in the mouth.

3 ) can swallow food.

4 ) if baby is not enjoying breast feeding.

 

How to start weaning :

 

1 ) start by offering just few drops of dal water once in a day.

2 ) once your baby starts enjoying, now you can start two times that suits both baby & parents.

3 ) gradually you can increase upto 3 times / day by 7 month and 4 times / day between 8 to 10 month.

4 ) Don’t loose patience if your baby is not enjoying weaning, Still avoid breast feeding at time of weaning.

5 ) As some mother are working than baby accepts weaning food as mother is not available for breast feeding.

6 ) if mother is house wife and having joint family, hand over baby to grandparents for weaning if baby is not enjoying weaning.

7 ) start one food at a time, once your baby is enjoying food for few days……. introduce new food.

8 ) if your baby don’t like new food, don’t force instead try new food after some days.

9) let baby enjoy touching and holding food.

10 ) allow your baby to feed themselves by using their fingers or spoon so baby enjoys more.

11 ) feed baby as much as he wants & stop when he refuses.
