The Initial Menu For Providing Complementary Foods?
Good afternoon, I want to ask my son just starting to make sure that every time he feeds him mashed food, it must be so intense and finally the spoon-hitting reflex must be. If I want to give biscuits, just chew them. Is it okay with the gums if they are given high levels of food? Or is it digestion? Thank you 😁😊
MPASI (complementary food for breastfeeding) is given when the child is more than 6 months old. If your child has just started consuming complementary foods, it is usually natural that the child will refuse or consume less because the child is not used to it.
when giving solid food for the first time, then you should give it a little in a small portion. It doesn't matter if your child only consumes a little food because it is in the process of adjusting. It is also important to continue to provide breast milk so that your child's nutrition is maintained.
Then, gradually give more portions. For the first time give very fine foods such as mashed fruit, milk porridge.
If your child consumes coarse tin biscuits, then you should avoid this. Because the content of canned biscuits for adults is not suitable for babies. In addition, providing hard food can interfere with the function of the baby's digestive tract.
Therefore, try to give complementary foods slowly. Also provide breast milk to accompany food.
