1 min to read Apr 1, 2021

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breast-feeding for the first 6 months. Consult your doctor for advice on when to introduce complementary foods to your baby. Breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible after introduction of complementary foods.

It’s important that you pay attention to the foods your baby eats on his own. They should be nutritious as well as easy to nibble on. Here’s everything you need to know.
