Month teaches you how to give a child to add complementary
how to give baby weaning and add complementary, for every first-time parents will encounter real problems. With the popularization of scientific knowledge, believes young moms and dads on this knowledge has a lot of understanding. Pediatric 8-12 months after weaning the best time for a living, not too early and not too late to add complementary should begin when the baby is 4 months; and weaning food supplement should be gradual, not sudden, and so on. However, in the clinical work, we can still see some young parents are giving children weaned and add complementary process, fall into that error. The situations most often encountered are summarized as follows:
, weaning is broken off milk and dairy products.
just weaned off breast milk, rather than any dairy products. Mother heard this kid, and would not even milk for the baby to drink, this is very wrong. Before the age of 3 children, fish and other animals to eat much of the protein, milk is also an important food.
off breast milk before getting kids used to drink milk, at least two or three cups a day (500 ml). When not used in children receiving solid foods can also first make habit of drinking milk, soy milk, in order to ensure adequate nutrition, then trained him to eat meat, fish and vegetables. In addition, 10-12 months child digestive system is underdeveloped, tooth didn't make, cannot Chew and digest food. After weaning, other than eating porridge, rice, still need to drink some milk. Meals other than Staples, plus two times snack of milk would be more appropriate.
II, "" baby don't love to eat! "
Add a new baby food, baby found some resistance, just think baby will not eat, so as to not to add baby after this kind of complementary. This idea is seriously flawed.
in fact, every baby accepts a new food reaction is different, some babies are very receptive to new foods, eaten with relish, some babies may experience an instinctive resistance, but that does not mean he does not love to eat. Young woman should learn how to teach your baby to accept new foods. If the baby starts are reluctant to eat, don't kill yourself, you can wait until the next day to try again. No, just wait until the third day, if it still doesn't work will stop for a week and try again.
Note that the dining environment, concentrate on eating in a harmonious and pleasant atmosphere. If the child is often expressed resistance to new food, and patiently trained from scratch, let the children get a chance to try different types of food, they eat, and interest.
of course, there are baby 1 year old for a long time, or with milk, and refused to eat properly, then mothers should pay attention to whether there are other reasons the baby contributed to this situation. Common causes include the following:
1. baby failed to add complementary. During the crucial period of infant complementary food (4-5 months), no suitable exercise for the baby, baby chewing ability behind the babies of the same age. At weaning time and eager to add complementary so that baby can't adapt.
2. bad eating habits. Too much baby food, diet or snack before a meal. May be often forced to baby do not want to eat hard, babies have a reverse psychology.
3. vitamin b, zinc deficiency. B vitamins and zinc deficiency can cause your baby taste function and gastric mucosa of digestive function.
4. diseases. Nutritional anemia, rickets, chronic digestive diseases, hepatitis, can cause loss of appetite.
5. psychological factors. When the baby too much tension, anxiety, shock, lack of touch can cause to refuse to eat. Mother to baby in the process of weaning must be carefully, to ensure that the nutrition after weaning, consulting specialist when necessary.
three, whatever food is crushed into a paste with bottle feeding.
some parents are too cautious, children eat solid food are very fine, no matter what the food is crushed into a paste with bottle feeding, thought that better nutrition absorption, children are more likely to accept. This is not science. Long bottle-eating mushy food, will make a child chewing functions are not properly trained, against his teeth erupt mesially and the arrangement of teeth and throat muscles after exercise.
food without chewing will not produce the sense of taste, which can't afford a child's appetite, is not conducive to the development of taste, also affected the development of the cheek. In this way, children will develop eating only porridge and noodles, won't eat the food habits, thoroughgoing, nausea and vomiting, so I don't eat slag to gag or throw up. Over time, the child's growth and certainly not a satisfactory situation, and also affects the brain development of intelligence.
right to be, starting from baby 5 months, mother is timely and bold to add baby porridge, noodles, rice and other food. Because the baby had a strong solid foods that "taste" requirement, they need to grind. While at the same time, babies are ready for solid food preparation of gastrointestinal tract. At this point, the food the more rough, the baby, gastro-intestinal wall, the greater the mechanical stimulation of the mouth, intestine the muscles greater impetus, a good stomach also can develop children.
certainly, to several months of baby added solid food sometimes will encountered some situation, like eat what on pulled what, stool in the with whole block of leaves, and whole flap of Orange, into block into grain of, times is suddenly more suddenly less of, make have family uneasy: this children is eat more has? is eat bad has? is indigestion has? so immediately change approach. In fact, parents don't have to worry. As long as the kids don't cry, according to eat according to play, food digestion and pull out the normal, but food does not add the role of nutrition, it only acts as a training exercise the stomach equipment – exercise is the need equipment, gastro is no exception. Slowly, the baby in "training" were adapted to eat the food to digest, absorb, and stool characteristics will also improve. If parents flinch, baby is also the best time to lose stomach exercises, intestinal drive and ability to adapt will stagnate, as long as the food hot, hardness, a slight change in the number of baby's gastrointestinal tract will be difficult to meet immediate trouble. That is why we often see some children not easy feeding, eating some more no, not eat cool food slightly hard, children are nausea, vomiting, reasons for not swallowing.
General 3-4 months babies should be eating ground very fine food; 5-6 month children can eat ground to a medium-fine food; 6-7 month children can eat soft foods, because at this point, your baby has started to chew food with their teeth; 9-10 months, babies can eat coarse food.
four, baby crying, "Hello".
young mother for fear that the baby was hungry, I saw the baby crying baby is hungry, to feed the baby, for a long time formed the baby's erratic eating habits. Baby crying is not necessarily because of hunger, and food in the stomach emptying and secretion of digestive juices in the digestive tract is a regular, if not time for your baby to eat, will definitely become heavier burden of digestive tract, cause digestive disorders.
v, to stimulate the baby's appetite, deliberately adding seasonings.
children's taste, is about a man's one-third, so, not according to adult tastes, some with heavier foods such as black beans, spicy bean paste, Curry, etc for the children to eat as little as possible. Produced for baby foods, or when choosing a snack, add sausage, bacon, ham, as well as snacks free of artificial colors, it is best not to the baby to eat.
too much seasoning with high salt, will increase the burden of the baby's kidneys, also can make your baby a bad taste, adults may be due to long-term consumption of high salt, to the threat of high blood pressure, kidney disease. Moreover, heavy foods are stimulating foods, too much greed, eating and want to eat other foods, can easily lead to eating too much. Many foods have a sweet flavor, picked the right raw material, even if not with sauce are very tasty, baby enjoyed it.
