Tips for the harmonious growth of your baby: from family education to proper nutrition

Being a mom is wonderful, unique and unparalleled experiences you will experience in the new profession. But mother status also comes with many responsibilities. A good start in being a mother determines a good future for your child. He needs increased attention from you still from your tummy. Taking care of your baby from its first years of life puts its mark on its further development.

In order for your baby to grow harmoniously, you need to make sure you provide a good education and healthy nutrition. The first step to achieving both goals is breastfeeding. By feeding on milk from you, the baby will receive all the nutrients necessary for a healthy and harmonious development, thus developing his immune system.

Pediatricians recommend exclusive breastfeeding within the first 6 months. Then, you can start diversifying your baby, which doesn't necessarily mean you can't breastfeed. The food should be easy to digest for the child, such as, for example, fruit purees (excluding citrus fruit in the first year).

New foods should be introduced one at a time, so your baby can get used to them. It is also good to pay attention to the baby's reactions to various foods and consult a doctor if you find that something is wrong.
