My Baby Is 6 Months Old, How Should I Switch to Complementary Food?


When to Switch to Additional Food?

*When sitting with support

*When you want to eat while you eat

*Exclusively breastfed - if healthy

Whatever is in season should be given as vegetables and fruits!

YOU should decide what to eat and your BABY to decide how much to eat!

RULES

1) Must be hungry for at least 2-3 hours

2) Eat sitting down (with support)

3) Food must be fresh, daily and smooth.

4) Feed your baby while you are eating, that is, at the meal.

CAUTION!!!

If symptoms are seen, the mother should immediately stop whatever she started as supplementary food and consult a doctor.
