Your baby in the 6th month

What your baby can learn

After 6 months, it is time for the introduction of complementary feeding because your baby needs more iron now. In the first half year of life, your baby was still well supplied by the iron stores that it already had before birth but now, your baby will grow quickly and move around more often now. A vegetable and meat porridge (with potato inside) will be best suited at noon. Detailed information on the baby’s diet will be put together in the website for its first year of age

What your baby needs

Parents who have already implemented the iron-rich vegetables and meat porridge (with potato inside) can now replace another milk meal with the milk grain porridge. Cereal gives your baby a lot of energy. It also contains a lot of essential vitamins, minerals and fibre that your baby need for a healthy development. Next up, you can introduce a nutrient rich but dairy free grain-fruit porridge. Fruit or fruit juice containing Vitamin C can aid the absorption of iron from the grains and vegetables.

Our AptaAdvantage Tip

One thing to note: feeding of complementary foods should not be equated with weaning or the complete abandonment of dairy meals. In addition to the three porridge meals that your baby consumes on a daily basis, the morning milk meal and often another milk meal in the evening will be essential for the whole of its first year of life.
