Within one year old, there is one complementary food that cannot be fed
That is egg custard!
In the impression of many parents, this seems to be a very good food supplement. Not only is the method simple, but the finished product is also very tender. It should be very friendly and acceptable to the baby, but they ignore it. For these things…
My friend’s child is more than four months old. Because the child has grown fast recently, he is particularly hungry. The doctor suggested that you can start adding complementary foods, because the child is considered The stomach is more delicate and my friend is not good at cooking, so I chose the simplest egg custard.
It was really good, but I was still afraid that the baby might not be able to accept complementary foods, but what she didn’t expect was that the baby was eating very happily.
However, it was less than half For a few hours, the child suddenly kept crying and scratching his body. After a while, a bunch of small lumps grew, which made my friend panic, and hurriedly took the child to the hospital.
The test result shows that the child is allergic to protein, and the child is too young, and the protein in the egg white is difficult to digest in the stomach and intestines, which causes this situation.
The nutritional value of eggs
In terms of nutritional value, eggs are naturally second to none.
Contains high-quality protein, the content of which is about 12%, provides high-quality protein for the human body; Rich in fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, these elements can well regulate the metabolism in the body; The egg yolk contains iron and zinc When these minerals enter the human body, they become the raw materials for many enzymes and coenzymes, thereby promoting metabolism;
In addition, eggs also contain various nutrients such as amino acids and phospholipids needed by the human body. In addition to the poor effect of iron supplementation, eggs are other The nutritional value of the aspect is still very good.
The child’s first bite of complementary food is chosen as follows:
Since eggs are so rich in nutrients, why can’t the child be used as a complementary food in the first place?
In fact, because the child’s gastrointestinal digestion ability is still relatively weak, some nutrients are difficult to absorb, which will increase the child’s burden, and eggs are a common allergen, and the egg white contains 5 kinds of allergens. It is not suitable for premature giving If the baby eats it, it is easy to cause the baby’s allergy.
So, at the beginning of the child When eating complementary foods, you should try to choose iron-rich baby rice noodles, meat paste, liver paste, etc. These foods are not only rich in iron but also easy to absorb. When the baby accepts this type of food, you can gradually introduce other types of food to achieve nutrition. Comprehensive health needs.
How do babies eat eggs scientifically?
Of course, as a very nutritious food, eggs cannot be completely abandoned.
Because eggs are foods with allergens, children may be allergic to eggs, so parents should first make sure that if there are allergies, they should avoid egg foods.
If the child does not have eggs For allergies, you can add food one by one according to the following method:
Because eggs are slightly inferior in iron supplementation, and the child has a large demand for iron in the early stage, the child has received some rice cereal and After mashed meat and other complementary foods, you can start to add eggs, of course, only add egg yolk at the beginning.
After the egg is cooked, take out a small piece and feed it to the baby separately to observe whether there is any allergies. If not, you can eat it with other complementary foods. If you have allergies or uncomfortable reactions, then It should be stopped in time.
When the baby receives the egg yolk, try adding egg whites, but it is best not to be earlier than 8 months, because there are too many allergens, and parents must make sure that the child is not allergic before continuing to feed.
According to the feeding issued by the Nutrition Society Guidelines suggestion:
7~12 months to eat 15~50g eggs a day;
13~24 months to eat 25~50g eggs a day;
2~ 5 years old eat about 50g eggs a day;
Note: Generally, an egg weighs about 50g.
Knowledge extension: How to judge whether a child is allergic?
Allergy is a common problem in children. It is usually caused by allergies. It is an abnormality of innate immune function and is mostly inherited. Therefore, this condition may be accompanied for life.
Once allergies occur, you should go to the hospital for treatment in time to avoid more serious risks. In this way, it is particularly important to accurately determine whether you are allergic.
Allergies usually have these signals :
There will be a rash or raised red skin on the surface of the skin, usually accompanied by itching. After allergies, swelling of the lips or face usually occurs. Vomiting or diarrhea. Coughing or difficulty breathing. The skin gradually pales.
If these problems occur, parents should contact the doctor in time or take the child to the hospital for examination.

Autumn and Winter As the weather turns cooler, pregnant mothers should use the following methods to keep warm.
1. Wear tight clothes
We know that the easiest way to keep warm is to add clothes, especially some close-fitting thermal underwear. It is very popular. Because this kind of clothing not only doesn’t look bloated, but also has a close-fitting shape and is warmer.
In fact, it doesn’t really matter if we wear this kind of clothes, but it’s not so friendly to pregnant mothers.
Clothes that are too close to the body will tighten our body and cause the blood circulation of the abdomen and the lower limbs to be impeded. Wearing for a long time will cause insufficient oxygen supply to the fetus, which may lead to suffocation.
Pregnant mothers will also wear thick coats when wearing this type of clothing when playing outside. This way, the oxygen supply will be even more blocked, so it is not recommended for pregnant mothers to wear for a long time Tight clothing.
2, cover your head with a quilt Sleeping
The weather has turned cold, especially in the north, but the heating is not yet online.
So my mother pays great attention to keeping warm when she sleeps at night. Not only is she tightly pressed by the corners, she even sleeps with her head covered. This method can indeed avoid cold, but it is also detrimental to the fetus.
Because pregnant mothers need a lot more oxygen than ordinary people, if they cover their head or body too tightly, they may have difficulty breathing.
Some pregnant mothers may become accustomed to sleeping with their faces covered, and feel not uncomfortable, but in fact, for the fetus, if the pregnant mother takes in too little oxygen, the fetus will be hypoxic. .
3. Take a bath or take a bath Too much time
Pregnant mother’s belly gradually grows larger, which will cause discomfort. You can choose to take a bath as much as possible when taking a bath. The hot water surrounding the body during the bath can relieve the pregnant mother’s body and relieve the discomfort of the shoulders and even the waist.
Especially in autumn and winter, a hot bath can also increase the body temperature, but usually it will suddenly become cold after washing and wearing clothes, so many pregnant mothers habitually extend the bath time.
However, the space filled with hot water for a long time will easily cause too much heat. The air is full of water vapor, so the oxygen content is reduced.
Usually when we take a bath and have difficulty breathing, let alone pregnant mothers, so pregnant mothers stay in such an environment for a long time, the fetus will be severely inadequate oxygen supply in the abdomen, resulting in hypoxia .
4. Close closed for a long time Doors and windows
It is a very common phenomenon to close doors and windows in winter, especially in the north, where there is a lot of cold air. Even if you want to breathe, open the windows and cold air rushes into the house. Pregnant mothers will worry about being affected by the cold. To the fetus.
But pregnant mothers need to pay attention to the fact that if the window is not opened for a long time, the oxygen in the house will decrease and the carbon dioxide content will increase. Will affect the health of pregnant mothers.
You can open the windows for half an hour after a period of time. During this period, the pregnant mother will go to another room for a while and wait for the air to be fresh before coming back.
Hypoxia during pregnancy will affect both pregnant mother and baby
Pregnant women Consequences of hypoxia:
Generally speaking, hypoxia in pregnant women is often not conducive to the smooth progress of childbirth. It is easy to cause difficulties in childbirth, and will suffer both physically and mentally.
The consequences of fetal hypoxia:
Different fetal hypoxia time will cause different consequences.
Some may only be short-lived and mild hypoxia, which will not cause too much negative impact on the fetus, as long as the normal oxygen inhalation is restored soon.
However, if there is a long-term hypoxia, it is likely to have an adverse effect on the fetal brain development, and severe cases may cause suffocation.
Therefore, during the third trimester of pregnancy, pregnant mothers must pay special attention to fetal movements——
If the fetal movements are less than 3 times in one hour, less than 20 times in twelve hours , And the fetal movement showed no intermittent restlessness, the prominent increase and then weakened or even stopped, these are often the “distress signal” issued by the fetus hypoxia.
Pregnant mother How to keep warm in autumn and winter
1. Choose pure cotton for underwear
For pregnant mothers, underwear with cotton texture is the best choice, because this kind of clothes is not only non-irritating Compared with other tight-fitting clothing, the skin will not be constricted to the body, and the effect of keeping warm is also good.
2. Get ready for dressing.
Wearing thick clothes in winter is an important part of keeping warm. It is important to choose a suitable pair of cotton shoes from your feet. At the same time, clothes, Pants, hats, and scarves are all available. Keep warm from head to toe. Of course, keep warm while avoiding tight clothing.
3. Use diet warmly Warm the body and stomach
In addition to keeping the body warm, diet is also very important. There are more than some pregnant mothers who are easy to get cold hands and feet. In winter, you need to avoid eating cold foods, and eat more warm tonic foods, such as peanuts, jujubes, sweet potatoes, etc., so that you can also keep your body warm.
It is very important for pregnant mothers to keep warm in winter, but they should also avoid long-term expectation in an environment with too high temperature to avoid hypoxia.
