Adding supplementary food is very important to the baby's physical development and health, and it is also very important to the baby's future diet and habits.
The latest regulations of the World Health Organization require exclusive breast milk or formula milk to be fed until the baby is 6 months old before adding complementary foods (the old rule was 4 months), because breast milk or formula milk can provide sufficient nutrition for babies from 0 to 6 months , Adding supplementary food too early will cause baby allergies and physical discomfort. Because the baby's digestive and absorption system and immune system are not yet mature, they cannot cope with too many complex foods.
If the mother really wants to add it earlier, it will have to wait until the baby is 17 weeks old at the earliest. Babies must add complementary foods when they are six months old. Because the iron content in breast milk and formula milk is obviously insufficient, babies need to take them from complementary foods. At this time, babies have matured in all aspects and can gradually cope with various changes of complementary foods. .
Complementary food, that is to say, is the baby's supplementary food. Between 6 months and one year old, a lot of the baby's nutrition needs to be taken from breast milk or formula milk, and the baby must ensure that the amount of milk is 500ml to 800ml per day.
