Feeding 6 month old baby
If you haven’t started your baby on solid foods already, your pediatrician will likely recommend that you do so at six months. Begin with an iron-fortified cereal mixed with breast milk or formula. As your baby adjusts to solids, introduce strained fruits and vegetables one at a time. Wait a few days each time you try something new to make sure your baby isn’t allergic to it.
Try mixing together the grains that your baby has had without any reaction(s) - Brown Rice and Oatmeal with Pear Sauce for example. You don't have to start with cereal - try avocado instead or banana.
Squash: acorn, butternut, pumpkin
You might be surprised to know that some groups also advocate some meats as a great starting point. La Leche League International suggests that iron-rich chicken is especially appropriate for breastfed babies, who need an increase of iron. Meats can be puréed to the needed consistency.
