What do you feed your 6 month old baby?? Proud Wife and Mommy! 17 kids; Puerto Rico 76 posts

I need some ideas on what to feed a 6 month old baby. This is not for me, I'm asking for my neice. She's not getting well taken care of by her mother. She doesn't want to feed her anything except milk and baby food deserts. So for now on, I'm stepping in and I'll start feeding her real food. That and the poor baby almost died last week from dehydration, she doesn't know how to take care of her right.

Anna only got breast milk at 6 months. If the baby almost died, why didn't the hospital intervene and call social services?

Formula.



Honestly, if she's that malnourished, that's all I'd give her. Her body probably won't feel up to the task of digesting anything else.

Formula. She doesn't need food yet. But if you want to give her some, give her veggies

My bad she is feeding her formula, she never even tried to breastfeed her baby. I have no idea somebody should do something about it. because this is not the first time that she ended up in the hospital, she's a very sick baby and she's also underweight for her age.

Call the authorities. Someone needs to step in and take care of this child.

Because her dad is taking care of her now and the family. We all live together in the same house, but the mother doesn't live here with the baby. I really want him to take the baby away from her, but he's always working and he also goes to school. They have joint custody of the baby.

I'd keep her on formula for now, then slowly introduce rice cereal/oatmeal cereal. Then go from there.
