Before sharing 9 Month old feeding Recipes, let us know important tips on how to feed which are discussed below.

Important tips on how to feed solid food to 9 month old baby:

  • Always give properly fresh cooked, soft textured and easy to digest foods as the baby’s digestive system is still developing. Don’t store the fruit and vegetable puree.
  • Now you can offer your baby, 3 main meals a day (i.e. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) and in between 2 snacks time (morning and evening).
  • Always remember that breast feed/ formula feed is very important and should be continued as and when required by the baby.
  • Try to show your little munchkin how to put the food in the mouth as it can help her to learn new skill of self- feeding.
  • If a baby develops any food allergy then stop feeding that food. Also, consult your pediatrician in such case. (Diarrheavomiting, constipation, rashes and too-much crying due to stomach pain are the symptoms in baby of any food allergy.)
  • Try the foods she once rejected after few days. She may start liking it. Sometimes the mothers feed a food repeatedly, thinking that their baby really liked it. Instead the baby gets bored of that food and hence starts rejecting it. So, feed variety of foods and try not to repeat but do remember 3-days wait rule too while introducing new foods to her.
  • Feed your baby when she is sitting in a proper sitting position. Make your baby sit on the high chair while feeding.

  • Be patient Mommies..! Don’t feed anything forcefully to baby. Also, never over-stuff her mouth with food.
  • Avoid feeding Cow’s milk, raw vegetables, nuts, too much salt and sugar before the age of one year.
  • Sterilize the baby utensils that are used for cooking and feeding.
  • Be careful while feeding your baby as introduction of some solid foods can cause constipation or Diarrhea too.
  • Water intake is must for a baby.
  • Now your baby may have developed teeth (or in process of developing), so stop pureeing everything. Make only those foods in puree form which is hard for her to chew. So, you can go ahead and introduce finely chopped and diced table foods. 
  • This is a phase when you should remember “EAT A RAINBOW”. Include lots of fruits and vegetables of different colors and textures.
