So, how was your little munchkin’s third week of eating solid foods? He probably has more favourite foods by now. We are certain you have tried several combinations of foods, and are equally enjoying the process of preparing meals and feeding them to your baby. Now it is time for week 4, which, just like week 3, requires you to prepare meals in combination, and have alternating breastfeeding sessions. You can choose to swap recipes according to your, or your baby’s preference, and add some more healthy combinations to ensure his nutritional requirements are met. Week 4, in a way, continues to break the breastfeeding cycle even further when you introduce your little one to new foods in combination. Your recipes can now include ingredients like meat puree, cereals, and yoghurt. Some of you may also combine breast milk with cereals, thus providing a wholesome and digestible meal for your baby.
In week 4, you will be boosting the nutritional value of the foods you feed your baby. Ensure you have an appropriate mix of dietary fibre, minerals, carbohydrates and proteins. By the end of this week, your little one will have tasted most combinations and would be comfortable with the meals.
