Do you want to give your child the best in nutrition? We offer every day a tip from the third issue of the collection "The Essentials of: 65 ideas to feed his family," sold with. Today, our advice for 5-12 months.

  • All babies do not do the same home with the spoon who is coming to them for the first time. It does not look like the pacifier, it's harder - even if it's silicone - and what to make this sauce or mash? Some children seem embarrassed while others find the right use right away.
  • As long as you do, offer as much at that time what your baby seems to like the most. It is likely that he begins to suck the spoon, without really taking it in the mouth. To get him used to it, let him take it with his little hands. At his age, he should try to chew it, as with a toy and if you leave a little compote on it, he will be able to cope.

His first meals without a bottle

  • From the age of 6-7 months, if he accepts the spoon, start replacing one of the usual bottle-feeding meals, like snacks, with half a yoghurt with mixed compote. But no milk after, it would do too much. At the approach of 8 months, also offer him, at noon, a puree of vegetables to which you mix pasta or rice with the equivalent of two to three spoonfuls of meat or fish, all well chopped.
