Did it happen to you that when you try to give your baby something to drink in a baby trainer glass, it takes it as a game and ends all wet? It is entirely normal that children who are in the feeding stage and use a transition vessel, do not take the matter so seriously. It is that in reality, they do not understand the process so much, remember that if they wanted to be hydrated, they only asked Mommy for a little breast, and that’s it.
Now with six months, the thing changes. This process can be challenging, because without understanding it, you are slowly preparing your baby for independence. Although many moms stop breastfeeding after the first year, others lengthen it a little more and try to follow an agreement with the baby. Until he or she needs it. They must know that at the time of complementary feeding, babies can continue to hydrate with breastfeeding.
It is emphasized that it is a “complimentary” food since breast milk remains an essential part of their balanced diet, and the porridge will only continue to accompany it. The same happens with those who resort to prolonged breastfeeding. At the time of the first meals, it should be combined with breast milk or with formula, if this is the case. It will be the water in sips that is added in small quantities as it grows and the child wants it.
The issue of water intake is named because usually, the use of toma todos and training glasses begins with water intake. So children who have not been near a bottle since birth, receive their first tomato at six months, with their meals. On the other hand, those who have had an experience with the bottle can move from the trainer’s vessel to the toma todos. But moving on to the issue of grip, it is also important to mention that as part of the baby’s development, you will see him taking the bottle for himself in a short time.
COACH GLASS AND THE FIRST MEALS
The trainer cup can reach six months, have many types of mouthpiece and grip. But they will also be a good distraction in the baby’s meals. Typically, it is customary to place the babies, right in their chair to eat, next to their plate and their trainer or tomato do glass. But if your baby is starting with the first baby porridge the fewer distractions, the better. So you can leave the water for the end of the meal or your breast milk intake.
The trainer glass with water will then be the company of the new foods. As an additional fact, according to paediatrician recommendations, fresh foods do not have to be only porridge. Sometimes children are interested in solid foods. Some paediatricians even state that when the child begins to be involved in the parents’ diets, they are ready to try them (6 months).
Of course, it should be added that solid foods that you try to give your baby must meet certain characteristics: Be soft, so that they can easily be undone in your mouth; have reasonable sizes so that they can easily enter a child’s smallmouth. And the proof that these foods must pass, according to the Spanish paediatrician, Jesús Garrido: They can be undone on your fingers. “If they manage to crush them with your fingers, your baby’s gum will do the same.”
TIPS FOR USING THE TRAINER CUP FOR THE FIRST TIME
1. Basic steps
1. Don’t let him grab the trainer cup like a toy.
2. But don’t become authoritarian and let him take his glass by himself.
3. It is not advisable to drink water between meals. Better wait to finish so you can take what is necessary.
4. Although at the beginning it only takes little, please do not remove it, it is important that you take even sips.
5. Do not add sugar or infusions to your water. It is not advisable, according to specialists.
6. You can also keep it hydrated with your breast milk. That is, after solid foods, you can breastfeed without problems.
7. Try to maintain proper hygiene in their mouthpieces, because if you leave food or leftover milk in them, they will be filled with bacteria.
8. If your baby already has all of his teeth, toma todos with stiffer nozzles are the most recommended.
Another part of the story is divided into children who never accepted a bottle and those who took it without problems. In most hospitals in Latin America and by order of UNICEF, bottles and pacifiers are not recommended for newborns (only some cases), because they prevent the child from properly breastfeeding.
It is almost impossible for a baby to be given a bottle at birth. In the case of premature children or with some condition, sometimes you have to resort to bottle feeding.
2. Children who never used a bottle
The best option is the most natural, but not the one that is always achieved. If you are one of that mommy who strictly breastfed, maybe your baby never got to know the bottle. And when you wanted me to take it, I never grab the nipple. But it is very normal, what happened according to experts in the field: Is that your baby already had well-established breastfeeding.
It is very typical that you acquire it when you start with its complementary feeding. And this classification of toma todos can be beneficial in those cases. The baby trainer cup can be the open mouthpiece and even with sorbet. According to other experiences, taking small sips of water with glass is also a technique that works.
3. Children who have already used a bottle
On the other hand, if your baby is already accustomed to teats and pacifiers. Transition bottles will not be a problem for him. Even if the taste of the water may dislike you a little (in some cases), you will take small sips without issues. With them, you can use teats with transition vessels and then training glasses with firmer nozzles.
Some parents have indicated that they pass suddenly with the glasses for babies with a soft mouthpiece and that without problems they adapt to them. But still, remember that all children develop their skills in different ways and on time. You have to try and have a lot of patience in your transition.
