My baby doctor is 5 months old. My baby often feeds but his stomach likes a rumbling sound even though he already fed a lot … is that a sign that my baby can be packed?

Hi Devi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

It is recommended that complementary foods be given to start when the baby is 6 months old. In some conditions, babies can be given complementary foods since the age of 4 months, for example, if the baby is no longer well at weight or if the baby does not gain weight properly just by breastfeeding or formula milk alone.

A baby's stomach that sounds rumbling does not mean that your baby is constantly hungry. A rumbling sound in the stomach can occur due to bowel movements (peristalsis). A rumbling sound can be heard not only when a person is feeling hungry as well, but can also be heard in other conditions such as there is a lot of air in the stomach (bloating) or when there is an infection in the digestive tract (diarrhea).

Before you decide to provide complementary foods for your baby under 5 months of age, you should first consult with your pediatrician. Your pediatrician will look at a chart of the child's development, and watch for signs of readiness to eat the child to consider whether your child can be given complementary foods or not. This sign of readiness to eat is very important to note. Some signs that your child is ready to eat include:

The head is upright The child is able to sit with the help / support The child shows interest in the food that the parents eat The child has lost the reflex to expel food with the tongue

Here are articles that you can read about complementary foods

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
