5 harmful advice to mothers babies about feeding
Many people consider it important to give advice to a young mother how to take care of a child: relatives, girlfriends, neighbors and even strangers. In this article, we’ll tell you what kind of tips, and sometimes bad advice, that outsiders can give. Remember that if you doubt the correctness of this or that advice, it is better to consult a specialist.
Probably no one gets as many tips as young moms. All around consider it their duty to tell how to care for a child: relatives, friends, neighbors and even strangers. But, you need to be prepared for the fact that not all of these recommendations are useful for you and the baby. Now I treat this with humor, and even made a rating of the most harmful advice that I received.
Harmful advice 1: from three months of the child can be doped with fruit juices
When Vary was 3 months old, I bought fruit in a street stall. The saleswoman immediately gave me lectures about the need to milk the child with diluted fruit juices, even before the introduction of complementary foods, the baby needs vitamins. In fact, usually the lure is introduced when the baby is five; six months. Before this age, the child receives all the necessary vitamins and nutrients from the mother’s milk or from the mixture, so the juice is not needed for him, but for the mother.
Harmful tip 2: you can choose any mixture, because they are all the same
Why do not you read in the Mum forums. For example, it often happens that all mixtures are the same in composition, only manufacturers and price differ. In fact, this is completely wrong, the mixture is dry or liquid, and they are different in composition. For example, can be made on the basis of cow or goat milk. My daughter often regurgitated and I decided to try to give her a mixture on goat’s milk, I read that it is closer in composition to the mother’s and easier to digest. Each mixture is designed for different ages of the child and takes into account possible manifestations of allergies. To find a suitable mixture for your baby will help the pediatrician.
Harmful advice 3: cereals for the introduction of complementary foods need to be cooked on cow’s milk
Recently, I was with Varya in the village visiting my grandmother. Well, I decided to help and cook buckwheat cereal in cow’s milk, I added butter, everything in it, natural. Bear in mind that cow’s milk is a heavy product even for an adult organism. To the kid, especially during the introduction of complementary foods, it will not benefit. But almost certainly cause indigestion and possibly allergic reactions. It is better to use either ready-made porridges for complementary foods from trusted producers, or to add to them the milk formula of which you are feeding the baby.
Completely agree with the author! Those who want to give babies cow's milk, vegetable and fruit juices from a very early age, please, but do not provoke others to do such deeds.
