 8-9 Month Baby Food Routine

This Diet Chart is according to my personal experience with my baby. Before introducing every new food I talked to my doctor and learned all the new ways to introduce food to my baby. It is not necessary to strictly follow the diet chart as it is because every baby is different and their food preferences are also a duty. It’s our responsibility to check what our baby likes and is comfortable with.

Best Food Essentials For Your Baby




Important Tips:-

  1. 5-6 times breastmilk/Formula milk is compulsory for the baby.
  2. Do not cut breastmilk or formula milk when the baby demands.
  3. You can give the food either in puree form or soft mashed form.
  4. Do not offer milk 1-2 hours before giving food, as the milk will fill the baby’s stomach and he may not be interested in eating.
  5. You can add pure ghee to baby food to enhance its taste and for healthy weight gain.
  6. Offer milk to the baby before or after a nap.
  7. Avoid adding salt, honey, egg white, and sugar. Use fruits instead for sweetness.
