Feeding time can be a task for most parents of babies between 6-9 months! At this age, children are active and curious and they can create a big fuss! Feeding time is the most important time for the proper growth and development of a child. At 6- 9 months 2 to 3 meals along with 1 or 2 snacks and essentially mother’s milk make up the complete day’s diet. The amount varies from child to child. If your baby is eating, small quantities through the day, and is active and alert, relax! Don’t overfeed the child and let the child tell you in actions when he or she is full or hungry.
Certain Feeding Time Tips-
Feeding time will slowly become easier as the child understands the certain rules you set. It is important to set the basics of food habits and food time etiquettes from an age as young as 6-9 months. If a child is playing with food while eating it’s okay but if the child plays and makes a mess and throws the food around, put an end to that play time! The mother and a child can communicate through signs and expressions during feeding time. It’s important to make it fun for both of you!
