But first…you have eating and sleeping changes to contend with. Buckle up!
Eating Milestones To Expect
Formula or breast milk continues to play an important nutritional role for the entire first year. Until children reach a year, many health professionals feel that new foods should still be introduced one at a time, with a few days in between so that it is easier to recognize any signs of food allergies and be able to identify which food(s) caused them. And remember – don’t give your baby cow’s milk, or foods that are more likely to cause reactions (such as peanut products or egg whites), until after they reach their one year milestone.
As your baby is getting around more on his own and eating more baby foods and table foods, breast feedings and bottle feedings will start to decline. Additionally, babies this age often would rather explore than be held and fed.
