Nutrition mode and examples of menus for a child of 9 months
At 9 months, eating crumbs is more like an adult’s diet. It is better if most of the diet of a 9-month-old baby will be based on breastfeeding, which supports the psycho-emotional relationship between mother and baby. However, cases of artificial feeding at this age are not uncommon. During this period, the baby has a need to develop mental and physical abilities.
According to the WHO (World Health Organization), the weight of a child is considered to be between 6.5 and 11 kg. Practice of domestic pediatricians shows that these frames are already narrow: from 7.5 to 10.5 kg. In this case, it is also necessary to take into account the sex of the child, since the norms for them are somewhat different.

How does feeding take place and what is it worth to be able to have a child at this age
You need to milk a crumb from a cup, let it hold it alone, you must only support it. Let him try to keep the spoon and eat. Of course, those children who were constantly on natural feeding, do not show a special desire to try to eat or drink on their own, they are more expensive and tastier than mother’s milk. Some women will feel that 9 months is early for independence, but it is already necessary to try.
