6 months: we introduce complementary foods

The first lure is either mashed vegetables or porridge. It is one-component, homogeneous and should be introduced gradually. The fact that we started giving baby food does not cancel breastfeeding. If you introduced vegetables to the first lure, then it is worth the porridge to enter the second lure (or vice versa).

6 months is the most frequent time when active teething begins. However, they can erupt both earlier and later. In some children, teeth begin to erupt only closer to the year and this is also normal.

The first incisors erupt first. They can appear together, or they can one after another. After the appearance of the first tooth, they must be started to brush – 2 times a day with a soft children’s Continue reading

8 months: the beginning of socialization

If you have not secured the house earlier, now is the time to do it. Crawl at the level of the child, try to detect possible dangers. Remove fragile and sharp objects from the child’s field of activity so high that the baby does not reach them. Attach all not very stable furniture to the wall.

Physiology
The first week of a baby’s life is rich in skin surprises. On 2-4 days after birth, physiological jaundice of newborns may appear. This is an increase in the blood of indirect bilirubin. Physiological jaundice is a transient, self-passing (not requiring treatment) condition, which affects about 50% of full-term newborns and 80% of premature infants.

In addition, toxic erythema of newborns and infant acne may appear and disappear in the first week. Often this is a cause of concern for mothers and, as a result, a strict diet that does not cure any of these conditions. The first month, and especially the first week, is the time for the infant to adapt to new food. If in utero the baby was fed through the umbilical cord of the mother, then after birth it abruptly switches Continue reading
