Consumption Of Unrefined Dragon Fruit In 6-month-old Babies?
Want to ask, do babies eat dragon fruit directly (not in juice) can the same seeds?
Hello, thanks for the question,
Feeding the baby must be gradual according to age and development because the digestive system of infants is different from adults, feeding begins with food that is textured liquid, then soft, then solid food. Infants aged 0-6 months are usually still given exclusive breastfeeding, when the age of 6 months begins to start giving food other than breast milk, but you should first identify the baby's readiness to eat food beside breast milk (ASI), which starts to begin to lose the reflexes pushing on the baby's tongue, starting there the ability to control the head and neck to sit up straight, as well as his interest in food, which can be seen by his efforts to take other people's food, if necessary consult a pediatrician about the development and readiness of the baby. If the baby is ready to receive food, it should start from soft food that is smoothed first, such as cereal porridge, rice porridge, vegetables and fruits that are mashed, and other soft foods. Giving dragon fruit directly without being smoothed to babies aged 6 months should be avoided because in addition to the digestive system is not ready, the texture is also not in accordance with the ability to chew and swallow the baby.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
