Am I too eager to feed him???:)

When should I introduce solid food to my baby?

You can introduce solids any time between 4 and 6 months if your baby is ready my bb dh 4bln lebih tu hehe. Until then, breast milk or formula provides all the calories and nourishment your baby needs and can handle. His digestive system simply isn't ready for solids until he nears his half-birthday. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies be breastfed exclusively for at least six months — though parents will attest that some babies are eager and ready to eat solids earlier.

How will I know when my baby's ready?

Your baby will give you clear signs when he's ready to move beyond liquid-only nourishment. Cues to look for include:

Head control. Your baby needs to be able to keep his head in a steady, upright position fariz mmg dh tegap dh kepalanya.

Losing the "extrusion reflex." To keep solid food in his mouth and then swallow it, your baby needs to stop using his tongue to push food out of his mouth mmg selalupun mengecek kitorg mkn.

Sitting well when supported. Even if he's not quite ready for a highchair, your baby needs to be able to sit upright to swallow well fariz dh mula duduk dlm walker.

Chewing motions. Your baby's mouth and tongue develop in sync with his digestive system. To start solids, he should be able to move food to the back of his mouth and swallow. As he learns to swallow efficiently, you may notice less drooling — though if your baby's teething, you might still see a lot of drool.

Significant weight gain. Most babies are ready to eat solids when they've doubled their birth weight (or weigh about 15 pounds) and are at least 4 months old 4month dh cukup,tp double weight gain x lg,bln dpn insyaAllah.

Growing appetite. He seems hungry — even with eight to ten feedings of breast milk or formula a day tang ni yg buat mama eager to feed u bebeh...bygknlh 5x4oz sehr wajib ditinggalkn hasil perahan mama..agknya klu start mkn bolelh kurang susu ckt.

Curiosity about what you're eating. Your baby may begin eyeing your bowl of rice or reaching for a forkful of fettuccine as it travels from your plate to your mouth mmglh suka menjeling ke pingganku..apatah lg bl tgk mama mengunyah,diapun kunyah... a conclusionnya...
Tunggulh bulan depan yer sayang...
