After the baby turns one year old, the parent's feeding method needs to be adjusted. Learn about "3 less and 2 persistence"

When babies are just born, they rely entirely on breast milk or milk powder to provide the "energy" they need for a day. As babies grow up, they are no longer satisfied with simple breast milk or milk powder feeding, so wait until about 6 months of age. It's time to start introducing complementary foods to your baby. In fact, the baby's diet is constantly enriched according to the needs of the body's growth, and the diet structure has been adjusted until the difference between the diet and the adult's diet disappears. In this process, it is particularly important for parents to control the stage of the baby's diet adjustment. baby's health.

Parents can easily make feeding mistakes after a baby turns one year old

When a baby starts to introduce solid foods at 6 months old, Parents should constantly adjust the different types and softness of complementary foods according to the baby's own development. After one year of age, the baby's diet will be very different from before. However, due to the lack of their own parenting knowledge, many parents still follow the previous feeding mode after the baby is one year old, such as still feeding the baby at night, etc., so that the baby's diet structure does not match the current growth and development needs. Slow weight gain and frequent crying. In this case, parents' feeding methods need to be adjusted. For example, when it comes to eating, the principle of "3 less and 2 persistence" should be kept in mind.

"3 less, 2 perseverance" principle to understand

When the baby is one year old, there are many feeding habits that are no longer suitable. In order to make the baby's growth and development more healthy, parents can adopt the principle of "3 less and 2 adherence".
  • What is "3 less"?
▼Less salt According to research, one-year-old babies should not add more than 1.8g of salt to each meal, and should be light, because at this stage, the baby's physical development needs not too much salt. Consuming too much salt can easily affect your baby's taste development, resulting in a partial or picky eater. And some of the foods we eat every day, such as sea fish, shrimp, cheese, etc., contain a certain amount of salt, so parents must strictly control the salt when making baby food. ▼Low sugar The human body itself does not need a lot of sugar daily, and most of the foods we usually come into contact with contain natural sugars. These natural sugars for our intake can fully meet our body needs. Therefore, parents should try not to add a lot of sugar to the baby's food, especially to control the baby's eating sugar, sweets, etc. If the intake of sugar is too much, the body cannot consume it, which may cause the baby to become obese. ▼Small snacks Many snacks now contain some additives, and most of them have a heavy taste for children with sensitive taste buds. These foods are not good for young children, and even become a burden on the baby's body. Therefore, for snacks , parents should learn to say "no".
  • "2 Perseverance" can lay the foundation for children's future diet
[Insist on letting children eat by themselves]: Many babies have the phenomenon of "difficulty eating", and the baby is "difficult to eat" It is entirely because there is a parent who "likes to feed". In fact, at this stage, the child can already try to eat independently, and the parent must learn to let go and exercise the baby's ability to eat by himself. Insist on letting the baby eat by himself can cultivate the baby's good eating habits in the future, and positively promote the baby's psychological satisfaction, independence, self-care ability, etc., so parents can be less "diligent" in this regard. [Insist on letting the child drink milk] It is usually recommended that mothers stop breastfeeding when the baby is about 2 years old, because breast milk itself contains rich and comprehensive "energy", and breastfeeding can also increase the baby's resistance. However, if for some reason, you cannot continue breastfeeding your baby, don’t worry, because the development of various systems of the baby’s body tends to be perfect around the age of 1, and you can start to try milk.

In addition, "the use of feeding bottle adjustment" and "farewell to night milk" also need to be put on the agenda

●The adjustment of feeding bottle includes: Pediatric experts have pointed out that the baby can gradually stop using the feeding bottle when he is 1 year old. If the baby is still using the feeding bottle, it will affect the normal development of the baby's mouth and deciduous teeth. Drink water from a glass. ●About saying goodbye to night milk When the baby is 1 year old, he can sleep through the night, and the food he eats is more "hunger". As long as he eats the amount of food he needs for dinner, he will not wake up in the middle of the night again. Supplemented with food. If the night milk continues for a long time, it will affect the baby's supplementary feeding process, so that the baby cannot receive balanced nutrition in time, and can not sleep peacefully at night, which will also have a negative impact on the baby's physical development.

At the end, I have something to say:

When children grow up, many aspects affect them inadvertently. Maybe some parents Things that you think are "too late" should actually be put on the agenda a long time ago. Parenting can't always be "waiting", it must be timely to be effective.
