The arrival of a new baby brings new hope to a family, but with it comes the problem that many new parents often seem frazzled when it comes to feeding their babies. With no experience in nurturing, they are cautious every step of the way and are even more careful in choosing their baby’s diet.
We all know that babies need to add complementary foods at a certain stage of growth, so what foods should babies eat when they are three months old?
What Can 3 month old baby eat?
Complementary food is a good transition for babies from breast milk to fresh food, but not all the time, at least until the baby is 4-6 months old, when there are some signs of wanting to eat parental food, you can give it to the baby. At the age of 3 months, babies should still be breastfed and infant formula.
Before the baby is born, the mother has stored a large amount of iron in the baby’s body, which is usually available for 4-5 months. Therefore, the three-month-old baby does not need to add supplementary food, and at this time, the baby’s gastrointestinal development is not sound. If the baby consumes supplementary food at this time, it is very easy to lead to indigestion, bringing more pain to the baby.
Three-month-old babies are still mainly breast milk and infant formula, which is sufficient for the baby’s nutritional needs. But when the baby grows to 4 months, the nutritional needs are greater, breast milk and formula can no longer provide sufficient nutrition for the baby, iron intake is not enough. It is very easy to cause iron deficiency anemia in babies.
Therefore, around four months of age, babies must add complementary foods to supplement the intake of iron. Foods with high iron content are animal liver, lean meat, egg yolks, green leafy vegetables, black fungus, kelp, etc. Egg yolks are most suitable for babies at this time.
When adding complementary foods to babies, we should follow the principles of balanced nutrition, meat, and vegetables, from less to more, from fine to coarse. At first, we must give babies some pureed food, cook and crush various ingredients into the puree. When babies slowly grow to about one-year-old, complementary foods slowly transition from pureed foods to solid foods.
For parents, they can choose to make some pureed food for their babies at home, or if they are busy and in a hurry, they can go directly to the store to buy some baby food. Such as baby rice flour is the most suitable for babies. These foods are made using professional formulas and advanced production techniques, rich in nutrition, clean and hygienic, and worthy of the parents to buy with confidence.
