The average baby will double their birth weight in the first 5 to 6 months. Over the next six month a baby's growth begins to slow so you may start to notice their appetite diminish a little. Continuing to breast feed is a wonderful way to make sure that baby gets the proper balance of nutrition. If you are bottle feeding use iron-fortified formula. At this age you will start to introduce new slid foods. Start with fruits, move to yellow vegetables, then green vegetables and then meats. Be sure that baby tries at least a taste of new foods so that you can discover preferences your baby may have. One important note, those funny faces babies make when their trying new food are not a telltale sign that indicates they don't like something, instead it is a natural reflex to a completely new taste and texture in their mouth. As baby grows accustom to a variety of solid foods those sour faces turn into smiling ones.
