Baby feeding one stage at a time

4 months: add 1/4 egg yolk

The 4-month-old baby is the same as the previous 3 months and advocates to continue breastfeeding. By the fourth month, the calcium, iron and multivitamins stored in the baby will be relatively deficient, especially iron will be gradually depleted, and breast milk is iron-poor food, so it is necessary to consider adding supplementary food to the baby. You can add 1/4 egg yolk first, and closely observe the baby's stool. If there is no abnormality, start adding vegetable puree or fruit puree appropriately after one week.

The daily calorie requirement for a 4-month-old baby is about 110 kilocalories per kilogram of body weight. The total amount of breast milk or breast milk plus formula is 700 to 900 milliliters per day. Eat egg yolk, vegetable puree, fruit puree and other complementary foods twice a day, 20-30 grams each time.

6 months: entering the semi-weaning period

The main source of nutrition for a 6-month-old baby is breast milk or cow milk. However, by the sixth month, the baby's digestive ability of foods other than milk has improved to a certain extent, and he gradually began to have the desire to eat foods other than milk. This is the better semi-weaning period. Eating dairy foods is the main way to prepare for meals.

Every day should guarantee a total of 600 ~ 800 ml of breast milk (cow milk) plus formula. Eat complementary food twice a day, such as rice paste, egg yolk, fish puree, meat puree, vegetable puree and fruit puree, etc., 50 to 80 grams each time.

12 months: transition to a normal diet

A 12-month-old baby gradually transitions from a dairy-based staple food to a normal diet and enters the weaning period we often say. However, weaning does not mean weaning products. Even if your baby does not eat breast milk, she should drink milk or formula every day.

The 12-month-old baby's diet has undergone major changes. Rice noodles and other staple foods, lean meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, and fruits should account for 2/3 of the total energy in a day. You can eat 100 grams of food per day, 100 grams of meat or eggs, 400 to 500 grams of milk or formula milk, 100 to 150 grams of vegetables, and 200 grams of fruits.

18 months: eat normal adult diet

Most of the baby's deciduous teeth have grown up at 18 months, and their digestive ability has been further improved. You can refer to the adult's diet for meal arrangements. Dairy foods are no longer the main food for babies at this stage, but it should still be guaranteed to drink milk or formula milk in an appropriate amount every day to obtain rich calcium and high-quality protein.

An 18-month-old baby eats 150 grams of food, 150 grams of meat and eggs, 300 to 400 grams of milk or formula, 100 to 150 grams of vegetables, and 200 grams of fruit.
