1 Answer:

Hi Ipan,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Eating solid food in infants is indeed a special concern for parents. The World Health Organization (WHO) does recommend the provision of solid or complementary foods at the age of 6 months. Infants who consume breast milk or formula milk are still given solid food of the same age. Some pediatricians or experts can indeed provide solid food younger than 6 months with certain conditions of the child where the child is ready to be fed. These conditions are as follows:

Little has shown interest in food or like wanting to eat
The neck is erect and can lift the head without help
The tongue out reflex starts to diminish

The factors above need to be considered and also no less important is the readiness of the mother to prepare food, give food to your child. Besides that, it is not just providing solid food, but it is no less important for the adequacy of the nutrients contained in the food. In general, the following factors need to be considered:

On time
Adequate or sufficient nutritional content
Safe and hygienic from the preparation of cutlery and so on
Provided in an appropriate manner based on time 3 times a day with 2 snacks
Not too long duration.

The following article is related to information on giving MPASI

So that I can convey, hopefully useful.

Greetings, Dr. Tiwie
