5 Month Cereal?
Ass. I want to ask, can a 5 month old baby be given cereal or baby cake? And what cereals are safe in kash with babies. Thank you, please answer😊
Babies do need adequate nutrition to meet their needs and growth. At the beginning of birth until the age of 6 months, exclusive breastfeeding should be given where only breast milk is given to meet their needs without giving other things be it food or other milk. This is also recommended by WHO. This is done for various reasons such as good nutritional levels of breast milk to the baby's digestive tract that is not ready to receive other foods because their growth is not good enough which can cause unwanted things. This exclusive breastfeeding can also prevent the baby from unwanted things such as the occurrence of infectious diseases such as diarrhea, respiratory tract and others.
So, it is recommended that other foods for babies are given after 6 months of age. You can read more about it on the following page:
