Diet of a child of 10 months on artificial and breast-feeding
According to the recommendations of the World Health Organization, it is necessary to introduce complementary feeding into the diet of the child with half a year. The age of introduction of complementary foods may vary depending on individual characteristics, but the child's diet for 10 months must already include sour-milk products, cereals, vegetables and fruits.
When it's time to introduce lure
The average age of complementary feeding is six months. But there are other, more objective signs that it is time to introduce complementary foods:
- the child is no less than four months old;
- the weight of the baby was twice as large as it was at birth;
- the tongue reflex reflex disappeared;
- the child can already sit, turn away from food or tilt his head back;
- he can already take something in his hand and bring it to his mouth;
- the main criterion for readiness for lure is interest in new food.
In cases where there are doubts about the advisability of introducing complementary foods, it is better to postpone than hurry. In addition, care must be taken to ensure that the products that the child receives are of high quality and only the freshest. The appearance in the diet of a variety of foods does not mean that it is necessary to abolish breast milk or an adapted mixture.
Rules of introduction of complementary foods
To feed the baby should be a spoon, and gradually the food should become more denser. You can not introduce complementary foods if the child is not feeling well. A portion of new food - no more than 1-2 teaspoons. If everything is in order: a normal chair, clean skin, a baby in a good mood, sleeps well - then the dose gradually increases. The next kind of complementary foods can be introduced not earlier than two weeks after the previous one. At the same time, a 10-month-old baby's diet on artificial feeding is no different from the infant's diet, except that the artificial person still receives the mixture in a bottle, and the mother feeds the baby through breastfeeding.
Diet of a child in 10 months
Before introducing new kinds of complementary foods, it is necessary to consult a pediatrician who leads this child and knows all its features. The baby's diet at 10 months in grams is approximately the following:
- in the first morning feeding, 6-7 o'clock in the morning, the child receives a mixture or breast milk;
- in 10-11 am - sour-milk products: 150 ml of low-fat kefir and 30 g of low-fat cottage cheese;
- at lunch, 14-15 hours - 200 g of vegetable puree or soup;
- for supper, at 19 o'clock - again a mixture or breast milk;
- at bedtime, at 23 hours - 200 g of milk porridge.
In his books, the diet of a child at 10 months Komarovsky describes this way. Nevertheless, each mom can independently adjust this menu to suit the needs of her baby. For example, for dinner, feed the child porridge, and before going to bed, breastfeed or give a mixture, especially since the breast or bottle is soothing. The main thing is that the child's diet at 10 months old should be varied and already included the main groups of products: sour-milk products, cereals, vegetables and fruits.
Rules for the introduction of vegetables
Always prefer seasonal vegetables, which grow in the area where the family lives. There is no additional benefit from overseas vegetables and fruits. Absolutely all the vitamins a child can get from the usual carrots, beets, potatoes, cabbage, turnips, pumpkin, onions, garlic. There is no need to buy baby purees in jars, but if this option is more convenient, you should always read the composition of mashed potatoes. There should not be starch, salt or sugar, but only vegetables or fruits and water.
Rules for the introduction of fruit
The first in the diet of a child in 10 months, enter those fruits that are least likely to cause allergic reactions, namely: green apples, white cherries and currants, gooseberries, plums. Then, when the child gets used to these fruits, you can add peaches, apricots, bananas, red currants. And last but not least, in the diet of a child at 10 months on breastfeeding or on artificial high-allergen oranges, lemons, mandarins, raspberries, strawberries, strawberries, grapes, pomegranates, melons.
Fruits are introduced very carefully, gradually. Firstly, the portion does not exceed a quarter teaspoon. Gradually increasing the portion, it should be brought to 100 ml. When there are various skin reactions or negative reactions from the gastrointestinal tract, it is necessary to immediately cancel the fruit that caused them. That's why you do not need to give the child a mixture of fruits, which he has not yet tried. If you enter fruits one at a time, your mother will know exactly what caused the allergy or upset stomach.
Rules for the introduction of cereals
According to pediatricians, recently many patients with gluten intolerance appeared among the patients. Therefore, even if there were no cases of allergy to gluten in the family, the first porridges in the life of the child should be gluten-free. This is rice, buckwheat or corn porridge. If the child has constipation, then rice is undesirable. Such popular porridges, as oatmeal, semolina or millet, it is better to introduce into the diet later. For those children who are breastfed, porridge can be cooked in breast milk. Children on artificial feeding porridge are cooked on those adapted milk mixtures to which they are accustomed. The main thing is not to use cow or goat milk. If neither breast milk nor the mixture is available, it is better to cook porridge on the water. So familiar and familiar to us from childhood semolina does not do any good for the child, so she either does not need it at all, or perhaps its introduction into the baby's diet after a year.
You can feed your baby's porridge only with a spoon. Let him not yet very much, but gradually he will learn. This moment is fundamentally important, since the food should be saliva treated, which will not happen if the child is eating from the bottle.
Traditionally, porridges are introduced into lure even after sour-milk products and vegetables, but if the child is not gaining weight, it is better to introduce porridges as the most energetically valuable product first. If the child receives a warm and satisfying porridge for dinner, he will fall asleep more quickly and with a high probability will sleep until the morning. But first porridge is better to feed the child in the morning, so that during the day to track possible negative reactions.
Rules for the introduction of fermented milk products
The first portion of cottage cheese - no more than a quarter of a teaspoon a day. Gradually increasing the dose, you need to bring it to 10 months to 50 g. As for kefir, then its portion for a month should be increased from 1 teaspoon to 150 ml. Both cottage cheese and yogurt are very easy to cook on their own at home. Do not feed the child with cottage cheese or yogurt, which is more than two days. The ideal time for fermented milk products is breakfast or snack.
When planning a baby's diet in 10 months for a week, mom should take care that the baby receives as diverse a variety of food as possible: various cereals, fruit juices and purees, vegetable purees and soups, sour-milk products and, of course, mother's milk or an adapted mixture.
