My baby is 11 months old, fully breastfed, healthy development is no problem. It’s just that lately eating is getting more difficult, maybe because I’m so bored with the mixed porridge that’s all. Btw only 4 teeth. My question :
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At 11 months of age, babies are normally introduced to family foods, which are denser in consistency and have a more varied taste than normal baby food. You can also start combining several types of food ingredients in your baby's solid foods so that their appetite increases.
Babies who have difficulty eating can indeed be caused by one of them due to being bored with the food menu served. You can get around this with the following steps:
Make a weekly menu schedule, make sure you make a varied diet for children, every day (if necessary, at every meal) Make it too, a variety of food offerings, not only porridge, but can also be made into finger food so that babies learn to eat on their own. Variations in different colors and shapes of food, adjusted to children's preferences. Limit the provision of excessive sugar, salt and flavorings before the baby is 1 year old, just give it appropriately. Minimize instant food and drink, Do not force babies to move It's okay to give fried food, but You should use a safe oil (for example olive oil) and use one time use Bread you can also give to the baby, but for leavened bread, you should delay it before the baby is 2 years old (consult your doctor first about this) Be disciplined in applying time and how to eat baby Accompany your baby to eat together Teach him to eat alone If the above steps do not work To overcome your baby's complaints, it is necessary to do further evaluation, are there certain health problems that make his appetite decrease, for example due to digestive tract disorders, viral or bacterial infections, or other inflammation in his body. Check your child directly to a doctor or pediatrician in order to get the best treatment. Avoid giving children appetite-enhancing supplements carelessly, especially in the long term, without first consulting a doctor.
Hope it helps ..
