Introducing Food to Breast Fed Baby

The time to begin introducing food to your breast fed infant is at month 7.

A couple of great options to consider is organic avacado, add a bit of purified water until consistency is as desired, soft but not too runny.   Another nutritious option is egg yolk from the soft yolk center of an organic egg fried in coconut oil, obviously, make sure the temperature is cooled before feeding sweetie pie.

Stay with one of the two options for a week before introducing the other food item.

To support balance in the still developing digestive system of the infant, wait to introduce fruits.  Think of vegetables, so many colors.  Start with sweet potatoes and all varieties of squash.   Again choose organic to get the most nutrition per bite.  It is easy to steam or bake the vegetables, and mash or put them in a food processor with a bit water to achieve desired smooth texture.   For convenience, you can make extra and put in ice cube trays and freeze.  Take out one at a time to use.

Giving the best simple whole food nutrition at the start, sets up the foundation for a healthy relationship to food and best health into the future.
