Nutrition While Nursing for Mommy and Baby
Breastfeeding nutrition comes with considerations for mom's diet, including medications, what to eat while breastfeeding, and foods to avoid. Baby should start solid foods around 6 months while continuing to breastfeed.
When should baby start solid foods?
Your baby should start solid foods when they show signs of readiness. Signs include sitting up with support, baby watching you eat, starting to mimic you while you eat, and acting unsatisfied with breast milk. Be sure to give your baby a well rounded diet and give breast milk or formula until at least 1 year.
