Please get help from the nurse on how to initiate breastfeeding and the suitable position for you and the baby.
Q : When I can start introducing solid food for my baby?
Most experts agree that weaning should begin sometime between 4 and 6 months of age. Nearly all babies are developmentally ready to sample their first solid foods by then. At this age, baby can sit up, hold up his or her head, and coordinate chewing with swallowing. He or she is also developing the ability to accept smooth foods from a spoon. By 4 to 6 months of age, baby's ability to digest and absorb nutrients is virtually mature. His or her kidneys are also able to handle the extra sodium and extra protein present in some solid foods.
The right time to wean should be determined with the help of your health care professional, who can best evaluate your baby's progress and needs.
