Kelan mo unang pinakain ng solid si baby?

Babies are mostly ready to start eating solids between 4-6 months. Although the World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics highly recommend exclusive breastfeeding or formula feeding for the first 6 months after birth, there have been some studies conducted proving some benefits of introducing solids at 4 months like lower risk of food allergy. So whether you start to introduce solids to your baby at 4 months or 6 months is purely up to you, but it is important to first observe your baby's readiness to solids. Here are the identifiers that you need to look for: 1. They can hold their head steady in an upright position. 2. They can sit up well with support. 3. They are interested in food. You may see them watch others eat, reach for food, and open their mouth when you offer them food. 4. They already weigh twice their birth weight or close to it. Note that if you are exclusively breastfeeding or even mix feeding, it is still advisable to introduce solids not until 6 months to make sure that your baby will get the complete nutrients that breastmilk has to offer. Delay introduction to solids, on the other hand, can increase the risk of food allergies.
