When the baby is 6 months old, the mother can start introducing MP ASI (complementary food to breast milk) to the baby. In order to introduce MP ASI, mothers don't really need to be in a hurry. Babies can differ from one another, some immediately want to eat MP ASI, some are more difficult to start MP ASI.
Here are some tips for starting MP ASI that you can do:
Start with a simple menu first to introduce babies to MP ASI, for example, fruit or vegetable puree that is steamed / baked mixed with more breast milk An easy example You can mix 1 teaspoon of puree with 4-5 teaspoons of puree and later you can start increasing it by 1 tablespoon pure with 1 tablespoon of breast milk. During the first week, MP ASI can be given 1x a day, the second week 2x a day, the third week and so on starting 3x a day, but this is not standard and can be adjusted to the child's condition Some recommendations are also recommended to provide MP ASI 2x a day first as much as 2 tablespoons to 2 cups per day, then increase it up to 3 times a day according to your ability. You can also see if there are any food allergic reactions in babies, for example by giving the same menu for 2 or 3 days before changing to another menu If the baby doesn't want to eat MP ASI, don't force it, you can wait a few hours later to give MP ASI, you don't You don't need to worry because at this time, MP ASI is still a complement and not the main source of food for babies. If the baby is used to it, you can start giving more complex MP ASI by ensuring you meet the baby's iron needs, for example with meat, carrots, green beans, Sweet potatoes, pumpkins, bananas, pears, apples, and peaches Lack of iron and other nutrients in infants can cause iron deficiency anemia and increase the risk of stunting in babies Honey should only be given after 1 year MP ASI can be given a little water to help the baby swallow. Give MP ASI when the baby is calm, not fussy, not anxious, and not too hungry. Pay attention to the increase in body weight, if the weight is decreasing or not increasing, it should be checked by a pediatrician so that his condition can be seen and if necessary further treatment is given. If the child still has difficulty consuming MP ASI after 1 month of introduction, consult your pediatrician too.
