What are tips I can follow when feeding my 6 month old baby?

ANSWER

  • When your baby is ready to move on from infant cereal, try vegetables, meat, and fruits.
  • Puree, mash, or cut food into tiny pieces. Do not give your baby raw fruits or vegetables just yet.
  • Give baby one new food at a time.
  • Wait 2 to 3 days to see if baby has a reaction before trying a new food.
  • Don't give your baby cow's milk, honey, seafood, peanuts, or tree nuts right now. If you offer an egg, start with the yellow part first.
  • Your baby's poop may change color or consistency, depending on what he eats.
  • Try using a sippy cup.
