For months, you can give the baby an egg yolk
With the birth of a child, young parents have many questions: how to feed, how to care, how to treat and when to start feeding them? One of the most exciting moments for newly mums and dads is the addition of new products to the baby’s menu.
Approximately half a year the breast begins to miss the nutrients contained in the mother’s milk, and then you need to start lure. Until then, breastfeeding is sufficient for the full development of the nervous, digestive, musculoskeletal and immune systems.
For babies who were on artificial feeding, add to the menu new products should be from 4.5-5 months. In children who ate a mixed formula, the digestive system is ready for a new meal one month earlier. And if you do not start lure at this age, then avitaminosis may begin, which will lead to many unpleasant consequences. It is rickets, visual impairment, slowing of growth, etc.
The main criterion in the choice of products for the first complementary food is its hypoallergenicity. It is necessary to minimize the risk of allergies in the newborn.
The World Health Organization recommends starting the first lure with vegetables and cereals. And after a successful assimilation of the baby, you can add a little more and other food. The yolk for the baby is considered an important product, without which the full development of the child is impossible.
