Breast milk is a most good and desirable product for a child! But how would we request to or not, there comes a time when the baby needs a new food. When must we enter solid foods? And so is it necessary?

For a lot of decades, Soviet pediatricians recommend introducing children to lure, starting with TWO-3 weeks. But numerous studies keep shown unreasonableness of such practices. Now propose newborn new food need be no earlier than four months of age. Although many doctors recommend starting only after six months, and in recent hours a trend shifted even further.

Starting solids is aimed at increasing the supply of the body with indispensable nutrients. To 4-month matching of movements of the tongue and swallowing skills to promote solid fresh food still largely undeveloped. Intestines are not ready to produce a lot of digestive enzymes. Child reflexively pushes his mouth all a "strange and unnecessary." And a teeth normally appear much later. The system of a baby is not along configured for chewing food. A lure prepares it for an early weaning with a warm and a consumption of "adult food." In addition, we show that a child's body does not get any benefit with the early introduction of nectar, how previously thought. But a damage caused may be considerable: from indigestion to severe averse reactions.

Timing of a introduction of complementary foods in every case could differ greatly. But no child need not start before 4 weeks - be it warm or bottle-fed. Mom's natural milk (or adapted formula) to fully ensure proper and full development of a child upon a 1st 6 weeks of life. For up to this time a child may digest alone breast natural milk or, at worst, a mix, not juices, purees and cereal.

In the case, you want know that to know the baby with new products to start with micro-doses. If the child refuses to strive unfamiliar foods or do you see it he did not similar it, do not insist. Set up aside an attempt at a later time.

It is highly convenient to keep a diary of complementary feeding, where you will conduct all monitoring and record the changes. Remember that each child is unique, and the optimal timing of a introduction of complementary foods for all various. Alone careful and loving mom can and want decide when and where to start. Of course, you keep to listen to the council of the pediatrician, to weigh all the arguments, examine a accessible knowledge to you. And be sure to follow a rules of complementary feeding.
