Helping her body learn to defend itself

Your baby has a distinct personality now and she has started expressing it quite well. While she has started sitting with support, you need to focus on supporting her defence or immunity system with the right kind of nutrition.

Time to introduce food in her life.

At around 6 months of age, your baby is growing at a rapid pace. And because of this, her growth and protection needs also increase rapidly. Your breast milk cannot fulfill all these nutritional needs on its own. Added to this, the stores of nutrients you transferred to her during pregnancy also start decreasing. It’s high time you introduced her first, solid foods in her life!

Let your baby take her time to get accustomed.

This process of introducing solid food in a baby’s diet is called weaning and these first foods are called complimentary foods. Naturally, this transition will take a few months. During this time, you should ensure that her food is easy to swallow and digest, and contains ample amounts of growth and immunity building nutrients.

You are the one who is going to take care of her health and happiness. One of the best ways to do that is definitely to take care of her nutrition intake. Maintain it and let it help her lead the perfect life.
