What age do you start spoon feeding a baby l Melikey

Your child's process of self-feeding begins with the introduction of finger foods and gradually develops into the use of  baby spoons and forks. The first time you start spoon-feeding the baby is about 4 to 6 months, the baby can start to eat solid food. Your baby may need a little time to "learn" how to eat solid foods. During these months, you will still provide the usual breast milk or formula feeding. Therefore, please don't worry if your baby refuses certain foods or is not interested in it at first. It may take some time. 


You can pay attention to some common behaviors to let you know that your child is ready to try the spoon:

Babies usually turn their heads and hold them with their mouths to show that they are full. As they get older, babies and toddlers usually show the same behavior before meals. When a spoonful of food is delivered, they may lose their temper or appear disinterested. In some cases, toddlers may even grab the spoon when it is close to their mouth.


How do I introduce my baby to a spoon ?

Let your baby sit on your lap or in an upright baby seat. Seated babies (usually about 6 months) can be placed in a high chair with a safety belt.

Most babies’ first-class foods are infant single-grain cereals with a slightly higher iron content mixed with breast milk or formula. Place the spoon near your baby's lips and let the baby smell and taste. Don't be surprised if the first spoon is rejected. Please wait a moment and try again. Most of the food provided to the baby at this age will end up on the baby's chin, bib or high chair. Again, this is just an introduction.


Can I give my 3 month old baby cereal ?

Unless your doctor instructs you, do not add cereals to baby bottles, as this may cause the baby to be overweight and will not help the baby learn how to eat solid foods. It is recommended that before the 4 to 6 months, infants only need breast milk or formula milk.
