Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

Your baby in the 9th month

More to learn for your child

Eating is now more interesting because your baby will grow more interest for the food that the adults consume. From the end of the 9th month of life, you can gradually introduce your baby to the food from the family diet. It can also safely try potato pieces that are specially made for children (no spices or sauce added). 

What your baby needs

Eat together with your family: this will characterize the eating habits of your child in their later life. A healthy and well balanced diet should be given with less salt, less sugar but plenty of fruits, vegetables and grain products like cereal. 

Our AptaAdvantage Tip

During the period of introduction to the family diet, patience is required. Let your child participate in your family meals and offer suitable foods for its consumption without being pressurized and let him decide when it wants to try your food.
