Feeding Your Baby with the Right Food

When you are feeding your baby, it is very vital that you know which foods are healthy. You cannot just pick any random food that is advertised on commercials. What you need to know is that one of the best foods to start feeding babies with is breast milk. Breast milk is nutritious and can be fed to the baby for a couple of good years. Once your kid starts to take interest in solid foods that he or she sees that you are munching then you take note of the following. Keep in mind that you still need to follow the standard six month rule when it comes to feeding babies solid foods. 
Furthermore, even though the child is eager to eat solid foods, his or her body may not be able to adapt to it until his or her second years. When it comes to feeding solids, you will never go wrong with fruits and vegetables. You can simply mash bananas so that the baby can eat it without giving his or her stomach a difficult time digesting it. Combining melons and avocados can also do the trick. Mashed avocados offer extra fat and this can be great when at a babies earlier years. Pears, mangoes and peaches are also good options to feed your child. For vegetables, you can boil sweet potatoes then mash them up as well. You can also do the same with carrots.

These are good foods to start feeding your child in his earlier years. You do not have to keep on changing the foods that you feed your child every day. You can simply keep feeding the same food for a week and then see how the child reacts to it. Then after a week, you can change to another food. This will give the baby the opportunity to appreciate the food it is offered.
