Every time your baby hits a milestone, you are overjoyed at how fast your little one is growing! But one of the most unforgettable milestones is when your baby has his first taste of solid food. This occasion is so special that in many families, there are special rituals and customs for it!
When should you start solids?
The WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding till the age of 6 months, after which you can start your baby on simple purees or mashed food. In case of baby led weaning, you can let your baby decide what to eat – just ensure it’s safe for her! For more information on weaning, check out our comprehensive guide to starting solids.
But the first question that pops into your mind is probably about what to feed your weaning baby. His digestive system is still not completely developed, so you need to be careful with your choice of baby food. Besides, his immunity is still not fully mature, so every morsel of food you feed him needs to be 100% safe and hygienic.
This is why homemade baby food is recommended by all experts the world over. Commercially branded baby food products also contain several additives, which you want to keep your baby away from, at all costs. However, for the modern Mom, preparing baby’s every meal from scratch may not be that feasible, especially if she’s managing a job, the home and older kids. That’s where Little Moppet Foods comes in – you get homemade, hygienically packed food from a Doctor Mom’s kitchen, certified and tested in a NABL accredited laboratory. What’s more, we have a huge variety of products, so there’s no chance of baby getting bored!
