Baby Feeding Guide for the First Year

Making appropriate, healthy food choices for your child during his or her early months is crucial.

Raising a baby is more than just baby fashion and shopping. Buying baby carriers and baby milk bottles in Malaysia is fun, but on top of that, there are several other things to consider. 

It’s essential to feed your child with lots of healthy baby food products in a proper schedule.

Beginning good eating habits at an early age can help your kid have a good healthy future.

  • Young children and infants must not eat nuts, seeds, hot dogs, popcorn, round candies, raw, hard vegetables and fruits, peanut butter or grapes. These can cause your little one to choke. 
  • Start with dry baby rice cereal first. Followed by meat, fruits and vegetables.
  • Use a spoon to feed baby food. It’s important for babies to learn how to eat from a spoon early on. Also, don’t use an infant feeder. Only milk and water must go into bottles. 
  • Cholesterol and fats must not be restricted to baby diet, unless advised by the pediatrician. Baby growth and development require fat, calories and cholesterol for healthier nervous systems and brains, as well as for general growth. 

  • Healthy newborns and young children typically require little or no water, except when the weather is really hot. But, once you introduce solid water to your baby, additional water must be provided. 
  • Never limit your kid’s food choices to those ones you like. Offering a vast range of food items may soon result to good eating habits later on in life. 
  • Is your baby starting to eat solid food items? Give him or her one food at a time. Don’t introduce another food product for the next three to five days. By doing so, you can tell which ones your child may be allergic to. 
  • Start with little amounts of solid baby food. Introduce a teaspoon at first, and then eventually increase to a tablespoon. 
  • Don’t introduce cow’s milk until your child is at least one year of age. Cow’s milk will not give your baby the nutrients he or she needs. 
  • Don’t introduce honey in your baby’s first year. This can cause infant botulism.
