A breastfed fed baby gets all the nutrients needed in breast milk until weaning starts. The mum has to eat a balanced diet though because as one mum had such a bad diet of eating only chips can you imagine the whole balance of vitamins that particular baby would be getting from that particular food source alone? its important as weaning starts to give baby wholesome foods not junk food to wean him or her onto solids.Do not leave weaning too late.
6 months is recommended to start weaning or slightly earlier depending on how hungry baby is .see our other blog posts for weaning babies onto solid foods.
leave it too late as one family did resulted in the parents being took to court for malnutrition of their baby by breastfeeding alone.
