- The first product to be introduced into the baby's diet in 5-6 months is vegetables.
- At 6-7 months of age, depending on the method of feeding, porridge is introduced, preferably milk-cereals, cooked alone or bought at a children's store.
- In 7-8 months are introduced dairy products - kefir, cottage cheese.
- In 8-9 - meat, fruit.
- 9-10 - fish of low-fat varieties.
The remaining feedings should be replaced with breast milk or an adapted mixture.
All products in the menu are 8-monthan artificial child or a baby is introduced gradually, beginning with a quarter teaspoonful. Further, if there were no unexpected reactions, you can give twice as much, and so to the necessary rate.
Start better with chicken, rabbit, veal,beef - they are less fatty and more susceptible. Meat is necessary for a growing child's body, because it contains amino acids, fats, animal proteins, mineral salts and many necessary vitamins.
After a week, try giving the baby a yolk of a chicken egg. Start with quarters, then increase the dose. It should be remembered that up to a year the whole yolk to give the child is undesirable.

2 feeding (9-10 hours): cottage cheese with banana and cookies - 100 g, kefir - 110 g.
3 feeding (13-14 hours): vegetable soup with meat broth or with grated meat - 180 g, bread - 5 g, half-yolk, fruit juice - 50 g.
4 feeding (17-18 hours): puree from vegetables - 160 g, fruit puree - 40 g, compote of dried fruit or fruit - 50 g.
5 feeding (21-22 hours): porridge with the addition of milk and fruits - 180 g.
Than to drink?
It should be remembered that tap water or boiled watergive the baby is not worth it. The first one is due to pathogenic bacteria, the latter is due to precipitated salts that will not benefit the baby. Therefore, it is more reasonable to buy mineral water specially designed for children. It must be non-carbonated. If there is no opportunity to purchase such water, then prepare a raisin broth, which quickly cleans it. To do this, 1 tablespoon of raisins pour a glass of freshly boiled water. Allow to stand for several minutes, bring to the desired temperature and give the child.
The main thing that you should pay attention to -gradualness and patience. Enter products in the menu of 8-9 month old child should be very careful, it is necessary to observe the reaction of the baby. If you notice any problems in the form of rashes on the skin or unusual stools, stop entering the product unfamiliar to the child and postpone it to a later date. Do not give candy, chocolate, sausage, juice, sparkling water at this age to the kid, explain to grandmothers that the liver at this age is not yet fully developed and any violation of nutrition can lead to irreversible consequences. Know the measure and rely on your maternal intuition.</ p>>
