It has been 180 days since your baby was born. You have fed your baby, whom you avoid even from your eyes, only with your milk for 6 months. Now your baby needs complementary foods. So, which additional food products will you start the transition process by giving him/her first? How will you know if the complementary foods you will feed your baby are safe? Which method should your baby start with these complementary foods? What foods can your baby digest? These are the issues that mothers have the most difficulty with during the transition to solid food and the questions they ask the most.
It is appropriate to feed your babies fruit and vegetable purees, cereals such as yoghurt, rice and oats, linden and fennel teas, and cumin, dried mint and cinnamon at the 6th month, which is the beginning of the transition to complementary foods. Baby purees are one of the first preferred supplementary foods because they can be easily consumed by your baby both in terms of the vitamins they contain and because they are grain-free. 6-month-old baby purees are necessary for your baby who is inconvenient to eat raw vegetables and fruits. Especially fruit purees are foods that make your baby's digestion easier. In addition, since the taste of fruits is delicious, your baby quickly gets used to the taste of these purees and does not refuse the food. It would be appropriate to give apple puree, apricot puree, pear puree to babies who are over 6 months old. You can mash many different vegetables, especially carrots, and feed them to your baby.
Types of Baby Puree
The 6-month-old baby, who has been accustomed to being fed with breast milk since birth, should be introduced to fruit purees and vegetable purees little by little. Fruit puree should initially be tasted with the tip of a teaspoon. Since fruit puree is a new taste for the baby and consuming a food other than breast milk is a different experience, you should continue and follow the tasting process for three days and monitor whether your baby has any allergic reactions to this new food.
