Can Milk Be Added To The Diet After 6 Months Of Age?
Good night doctor. My baby for 6 months was exclusively breastfeeding, now I have started eating food. Is it possible to mix the milk into the juice as a substitute for water? Thank you, doctor.
Exclusive breastfeeding is given until babies are 6 months old. By providing exclusive breastfeeding, it can help the growth of children and increase children's endurance.
After the child is more than 6 months old, additional food is indeed needed or commonly referred to as MPASI. What is meant by MPASI is the child starts to be given another food source while still being given ASI. So you can just give your child formula milk in addition, give formula milk that is appropriate for your child's age. But it is not recommended to replace formula milk for water entirely, because babies also still need water to consume.
Give other foods gradually, such as soft foods, soft fruits. give in small portions first, then gradually give other types of food.
