Refreshing Baby Formula Drinks For 6 Months Of Age?
p dir = "ltr"> Hi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The best food for babies is breast milk. In fact, breast milk is the only food until the baby is 6 months old. After 6 months of age, babies are introduced to complementary feeding (MPASI). MPASI is not a substitute for breast milk, but only complementary food to meet the nutritional needs of infants who can not be fulfilled anymore if only with breast milk only. MPASI is also the preparation stage for babies to be able to eat like adults. Because, as the baby's age increases the nutritional needs of the baby also increase as well, until through breast milk alone cannot be fulfilled anymore.
MPASI is given in stages. Starting with giving one type of food that is mashed, then mixed with breast milk, formula milk or water, with a ratio of 1 teaspoon of mashed food mixed with 4 teaspoons of liquid. For example 1 teaspoon of refined avocado mixed with 4 teaspoons of water. The baby is given a small amount of food and then each day the amount of gift can be increased. In addition, the level of food viscosity is also increased every 3 days. By always paying attention to the baby's response.
At the beginning, between and at the end of a bribe, babies can be given water or formula milk or breast milk. There is no special fluid that needs to be given to babies. Because the baby's fluid needs are met with breast milk and foods that are mixed with liquid.
You can read about how to give MPASI here.
Thus, hopefully useful.
