In the first year after the baby is born, Mummy will encounter many concerns, about breast milk replacement, about adding complementary foods, about alternative habits . Here we have selected some of the most common replacement problems for Mummy, please see expertsHow to answer.
Q1: When can I start regular baby feeding?
A: After 3 months, it needs to be formed gradually.
Babies have great ability to control their appetite.
In general, if the baby is full, he knows to spit out the nipple.
Or turn your head elsewhere.
If hungry, some babies will cry.
Some babies will make a sucking action, which requires parents to observe carefully and understand the special “language” of the baby.
Generally speaking, babies within 3 months should breastfeed on demand and feed when they are hungry.
This will ensure that the baby gets adequate transition and nutrition.
Body grows again.
After 3 months, the expected pattern needs to be gradually formed.
Q2: How to know whether the milk produced by mommy can meet the growth needs of babies?
A: It can be based on the following three points: First, the most important thing is to see if the baby’s growth rate is normal.
If 0-6 months small infants gain 0 monthly weight.
Is an average.
Some babies can grow 1-1 each month.
Five pounds, which means that the growth of the baby is very satisfactory.
If the baby’s weight gain is less than 0.5 months in 1 month and he is not sick, he should pay attention to whether there is insufficient milk secretion.
Second, if the baby urinates 6-8 times a day or more, it indicates that the mother’s milk secretion is sufficient.
Third, the baby will have a satisfied expression after eating, or can fall asleep for a long time without being noisy.
If only after breast milk is eaten, she will start crying for no reason, and look for nipples.
At this time, you should pay attention to whether your mother’s milk secretion is insufficient.
Q3: What is the appropriate amount of breastfeeding for a day (24 hours)?
A: The most important thing is to see if the baby’s mental state and growth rate are good.
Breastfeeding is difficult to count.
If the baby is in good spirits.
The growth rate is normal.
As long as the baby is hungry.
Mommy can feed him at ease.
For artificially fed babies, the amount of formula should not exceed 1,000 ml for 24 hours.
Because too much protein and salt are harmful to the infant’s immature kidney, and a large amount of protein enters the intestinal cavity, which can cause hyperemia in the body due to allergic reactions.
Even a small amount of bleeding.
The amount of formula should be controlled within 1000 ml within 24 hours.Generally speaking, little babies do not add muddy foods.
A daily formula of between 700 and 100 milliliters is sufficient.
But if the baby eats less than this amount, but the weight increases normally, the mother-in-law does not have to worry about it.
You know, active babies are more active than inactive babies.
It may consume 2-3 times more energy in activities.
So the most important thing is to see if the baby’s mental state and growth rate are good.
Q4: It’s been four months since the baby was born, should he be fed with lactation (mud-like food)?
Answer: This depends on the current expected way to decide whether to add complementary foods.
If it is breastfeeding, in principle, there is no need to add complementary foods now, and it will be added to the baby 6 months later; if it is artificial feeding, you can consider adding mud-like foods at four or five months.
Q5: What should be paid attention to when adding mud-like food?
A: Adding muddy foods should follow the following principles: from small to large: For example, adding egg yolk generally starts from a quarter of an egg yolk. At the same time, observe the baby’s stool characteristics and frequency, and appetite.
If the dry and thin traits and frequency of the baby’s stool do not change significantly from the index before adding, and the appetite is as usual, increase the amount of egg yolk to 1/2 in the second week, and then observe the characteristics and frequency of the stool, and the appetiteDay, without any changes, you can increase the amount of egg yolk, so gradually add to a whole egg yolk.
There are one or more kinds of food: first add a complementary food, and wait until the baby’s digestive function is fully adapted to the added food, then add another food.
When the baby’s digestive tract function is fully adapted to the yolk, another new food can be added at the same time.
Adding new food should also follow the principle of less to more.
From thin to thick: If adding rice food, you should start with rice soup first.
After adapting to rice soup, eat dilute rice paste.
Gradually add the consistency of the thick rice paste.
Then gradually transition to porridge, soft rice, dry rice.
From fine to coarse: If adding vegetables, add vegetable juice first.
When the baby adapts.
Change to vegetable puree.
Then gradually transition to chopped vegetables and leaves.
Respect for individual differences: the development of digestive function of each baby is not exactly the same.
The extent of various digestive enzyme activities is not completely consistent.
Therefore, the supplementary food must be added in accordance with the above principles.
At the same time, how fast is complementary food?
Mummy should not compare her baby with other babies, but make decisions based on her baby’s digestive ability.
Otherwise it will cause baby’s digestive dysfunction.
Q6: In addition to fruit juice and vegetable water, what is the order of adding mud-like food?
A: Shun Liao is roughly rice noodles, egg yolks-fish puree, quinoa puree-various other mud-like foods.
Generally speaking, babies can raise their heads and chests when they are prone when they are 4 months old.
At this time the baby’s oral function also gradually developed.
Chewing, swallowing, coordination of the tongue and oral muscles have begun to form, and the ability to eat semi-liquid, semi-solid food.
And because the baby develops faster.
There are many activities and more traces and minerals are needed, so the supplementary food can meet the needs of rapid growth.
Rice noodles are the first choice of complementary food for your baby.
Because rice noodles are easy to digest, it is not easy to cause allergies.
And micron is the carrier of many minerals.Initially, the rice noodles are washed into a semi-liquid. After the baby adapts, the rice noodles are washed into a semi-solid so that the baby can naturally accept it.
After fully adapting to rice noodles, egg yolk can be added, naturally it is gradually added from little to more.
Don’t be rushed.
Q7: When the muddy food is first added, the baby often licks the food out of his tongue. What is going on?
A: Baby’s chewing and swallowing functions need time to exercise.
Babies must learn to use the tongue to control food, and bring food from the tongue to the back of the mouth to swallow.
The accurate completion of this set of actions takes time to learn.
Baby often licks food out of his mouth, mostly because he can’t control the movement of his tongue and oral muscles.
It doesn’t mean he doesn’t like this food.
Therefore, mommy should treat this phenomenon correctly, and patiently help the baby to add complementary food.
Q8: When can baby’s diet be imitated?
A: Baby can eat a lot of food in about 8 months.
If you master the time to add mud-like food to your baby.

At this time it is still not equal to the diet of an adult.

A: Usually two cymbals are at 8 — 12 weeks.
