babyfeeding matters: Weaning
As your baby grows and develops, a diet only of breast milk or formula milk is not enough because breast milk or formula milk does not contain enough iron and other nutrients that your baby needs. Weaning allows your baby's diet to expand to meet their increasing nutritional requirements. Weaning also helps in the development of chewing and speech development and aids developmental and social skills. View/Download the PDF: Fun First Foods. I Breastfed My Son Until He Was 6.
