But as baby's feeding frequency changes, so do their nutritional needs. How much should they be eating? When should solids be introduced? What types of foods are right for a baby's particular developmental stage? How can you determine if a child is allergic to certain foods? These are just a few of the common questions new parents often have when they add a new baby to their family.
It is crucial that new parents do their homework and know the answers to these questions. Not only will your child get the right nutrition, they will also grow healthier and stronger. There are a lot of great resources to help you make the best nutritional decisions for your baby. Talking to your pediatrician or a nutritionist is a great idea. Have an ongoing dialogue and never be afraid to express your concerns to them. They're there to help, and can be a wonderful support system!
