Also, when should I start feeding my baby real food?
Ready for Real Food Feeding your baby anything but breast milk or formula too soon can increase her risk of food allergies and obesity. So wait until she's 4 to 6 months old before you introduce solids. At this age her digestive system is probably ready to handle complex foods.
Likewise, what should I feed my nine month old baby? Babies readily eat cereal, cooked noodles, soft breads, and rice. It's just as easy to give them enough dairy, since babies this age are still drinking 16 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula a day. But don't forget to serve extra protein in the form of chicken, fish, beans, or eggs.
