At What Age Can A Baby Consume Solid Food?
Asalamualaikum, my doctor asked my child to be 1 year 2 months old. After eating solid food, but he did not want to eat mixed with fish or eggs.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In fact, there is no standard in the way of giving MPASI. You can adjust the giving of MPASI to your baby, namely in terms of texture, quantity, ingredients, taste, and various other components by taking into account the condition of your baby. However, in general, babies are allowed to consume the same food as adults (including solid food, fish, or eggs) at the age of 1 year.
Your baby who does not want to consume fish or eggs may be caused by he really does not like the taste. Babies who are older have indeed shown a lot of nature like adults, including wanting to choose their own foods they like and dislike. It could also, your baby does not want to consume fish and eggs because they feel uncomfortable after consuming the food, for example due to food allergies. As long as your baby is hungrily eating with other side dishes, it really doesn't matter. You can replace the nutritional needs of fish and eggs, for example by giving your baby meat, nuts, whole grains, interspersed with fruits. Do not forget, also give your baby enough water coupled with breast milk until the age of 2 years, or more.
As the ability to eat, motor development of each baby can be different, some are fast, some are slow. In general, the ability to walk is usually possessed by babies at around the age of 9 to 24 months. Therefore, the condition of your baby who has not been able to walk at the age of just 14 months can actually be tolerated. You need to be vigilant if after reaching the age of 24 months, the child is still unable to walk. It may be that this condition reflects health problems, such as cerebral palsy, brain tumors, spinal cord disorders, cognitive disorders, and so on. Further evaluation and treatment needs to be done by a doctor or pediatrician sub-specialist growth and development in this regard.
To help optimize its development, you should encourage your baby to play and be active. Don't make it a habit to give baby gadgets. Give your baby enough milk as well as balanced nutritional value. Do not forget, always control the growth and development of infants to the doctor or pediatrician regularly.
Hope this helps ...
