Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After 6 months of age, to support their growth, babies need to get nutritious food in addition to breast milk (breast milk). The selection of this type of food can be adjusted according to various factors, including the age of the baby, a history of allergies and other diseases, the availability of foodstuffs, the baby's preferences, and so on.
Fish is one type of food that is good for babies. Both sea water fish and freshwater fish are equally good at helping meet the nutritional needs of babies.
Of course, babies who are 10 months old can eat fish. It's just that you need to be more observant about what fish your baby can eat. Because, many babies have allergies after consuming certain types of fish. Often times, what triggers allergies in babies is sea fish, such as salmon, dori, snapper, and so on. However, it is also possible for babies to experience allergies after consuming other types of fish. Allergy symptoms that need to be watched out for can vary, ranging from itchy skin, freckles, swelling, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, colic, and so on. In this condition, you should pay close attention to what types of fish trigger allergic symptoms in your child and delay giving the fish until your baby is older.
Besides the risk of allergies, what needs to be considered from feeding fish to babies is the possibility that these fish contain dangerous chemical particles, for example formalin. In order to avoid this, it is highly recommended that you give fish that is still fresh and not preserved for a long time.
To give fish-based solids to your children, you can process it in various ways, such as by processing it together with vegetables, frying it in good quality oil, and so on. Wash the fish thoroughly before processing it into baby food and cook it until it is completely cooked. Avoid using excess sugar, salt, and flavorings on babies before the age of 2 years. Do not forget, also balance the provision of fish with other food ingredients that have high nutritional value.
That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a pediatrician.
