By about 4 months of age, our little one started showing
an interest in our food. While we were eating, her eyes were always at our
meals. By about 6 months of age, she was able to hold her head up by
herself, so we decided to start solid foods after her 6 months old
pediatrician appointment. I was excited because she is going to learn different
Until 5 months of age I was giving apple, grape and mango
juices just only a few teaspoons everyday, so I knew that she is not allergic
to these fruits. But these juices has just only sweet tastes, thats why I
prefer to introduce her yogurt as a new taste. After introducing her yogurt and
saw that she has not a yogurt allergy, I started giving her some mixtures.
There were some important points that I was following. One of
them to start one new food at a time. This makes it easier to keep track of
any food allergy or intolerance. So I choose to use one ingredient
over the other and I use that ingredient at least 4 days before adding a new
taste. And I have tried to introduce a new food in the late morning. By
this way I had more time to watch out for any allergic reactions.
