Will feeding my baby solids be a problem?
I was told not to mix feed as it might increase chances of infecting my son with HIV. He’s 7 weeks. I wanna know is it possible to feed him soft porridge, he’s drinking formula.
Thanks for getting in touch.
Mix feeding refers to breastmilk and formula milk. Its OK for babies to have solid foods as well as milk. However, your baby is very young. Babies under the age of 6 months don’t need solid food. What they need is milk.
