TEN MOUNTH VISIT
Don’t be surprised if your baby is more interested in exploring than eating. Most babies this age are preoccupied with getting into things they shouldn’t be getting into and getting out of things they shouldn’t be getting out. Crawling, standing up, cruising and even walking may be on your baby’s agenda this month.
Baby should eat ¼ to ½ cup each of grains, fruit and veggies, ¼ to ½ cup of dairy foods, and ¼ to ½ cup of protein foods per day. You can still offer 24 to 30 ounces a day of breast milk or formula as well.
Some unusual behaviors may pop up around now, including head banging, rocking, rolling, teeth grinding and hair pulling. They’re often triggered by stress, such as over-stimulation or a change in their routine.
There are no vaccines due at this visit- a pain less visit !
