This example of Nestle's Lactogen, a pediatric food product claiming to be "highly suitable for nursing mothers, convalescents and others in delicate health," was collected from the shelves of Tupper's Pharmacy, a neighborhood drugstore that existed in Summerville, S. C., from 1902 to 1977.
Lactogen is manufactured by the Nestle Company, the Swiss firm founded by pharmacist Henri Nestle, inventor of the first fully artificial infant milk formula, "Farine Lactee." Farine Lactee, a malt- and cow milk-based product, was first introduced in the 1860s. It and other commercial pediatric formulas of the time attempted to reproduce the nutritional formula found in breast milk.
Companies continued to try to create synthetics that more closely replicated human milk. Gerstenberger and Ruh introduced SMA (Synthetic Milk Adapted) in 1919; Nestle introduced Lactogen, and Franklin Foods, Similac, soon after. These new products gained the trust of the medical establishment, and the 1950s saw a sharp increase in infant formula use within the United States. Use of infant formula peaked within the 1970s, when approximately 75 percent of American newborns received formula instead of being breastfed. The reasons for this increase include successful marketing campaigns, including the provision of free products; mid-century consumer confidence in "scientific products"; the acceptance of infant formula's nutritional value by nurses and pediatricians; and the increase of women in the workforce.
The use of infant formulas has decreased greatly in recent years; today only three out of ten newborns in the United States are given formula. This change is primarily due to more recent medical studies determining that while babies can thrive on formula, breast milk is superior, especially in that it strengthens the immune system. Nestle and other commercial infant food manufacturers have come under worldwide censure for the aggressive marketing of formulas within third-world countries.

Read "Proper baby nutrition. From birth to 3 years" - Dobrova Elena Vladimirovna - Page 8 . For this reason, juice should be given to a child after meals or in between feedings so as not to reduce appetite.

At 4.5 months the first complementary foods are introduced, the main component of which are canned and natural vegetable or fruit purees. They are an intermediate product that facilitates the transition of the baby to adult food, which is thicker. nine0006

If the child is not recovering well or is very weak, porridge can be prescribed as the first complementary food. Although children go from mashed potatoes to cereals more easily than vice versa.

At first, the child is recommended to give puree of apples, carrots, squash or bananas, and then you can move on to purees containing several types of vegetables or fruits. The consistency should be very liquid, but gradually it should be made thicker.

It is necessary to start with 0.5 tsp, in order to increase the volume to 30-50 g by the end of the week. Thus, after 14 days, complementary foods should completely replace 1 feeding. nine0006

For 4-5 days, the baby should be fed puree from the same vegetable or fruit to make sure there is no allergic reaction. If, after taking a new food, the child has at least 1 painful symptom (difficulty breathing, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, skin rash, runny nose or watery eyes), you should immediately consult a doctor, and exclude the puree that caused such a reaction from the baby’s diet .

The best time to start feeding your baby is in the morning between feedings, when he is not too hungry. In this state, he will show more patience and remain calm longer. nine0006

It goes without saying that not only the baby, but also the mother should be in a good mood.

It is very important that the child is positioned correctly when eating foods that are thicker than formula milk. He must sit on his mother's lap or in a child seat.

Under no circumstances should the baby be allowed to lean backward, otherwise he may choke or choke.

The best choice for feeding is a special baby spoon with a long handle and a rubber or plastic coating. It is not recommended to use a metal spoon, as it can injure the child's gums. nine0006

To accustom the baby to new sensations gradually, a spoon with a very small amount of food should be carefully inserted into his mouth and placed in the middle of the tongue. At 4 months of age, the baby cannot yet close his lips on a spoon, so at first he will push food out of his mouth with sucking movements of his lips and tongue. But this does not mean at all that he does not like the food offered, he just does not know how to eat it. That's why mothers need to be patient.

If the baby turns away from the spoon, thus showing that he no longer wants to eat, do not force him. Otherwise, the child will associate only unpleasant sensations with the new food. No matter how much he eats, he deserves praise and encouragement. nine0006

Active participation in the feeding process also contributes to the positive mood of the baby. Do not try to hold the child's hands so that he does not go into his mouth with them or grab the spoon. Let them stay free. In this case, he will help himself to cope with food, acquiring useful skills.

Gradually, the baby will get used to the spoon, and he will associate it with eating. His desire to eat will become more obvious and understandable to the mother. If you bring a spoon to your mouth, the child will open his mouth in advance, follow her with his eyes or express his displeasure if the mother feeds him too slowly. nine0006

The second complementary food is introduced after the baby has fully assimilated the first one and eats about 150 g of vegetable or fruit puree per 1 feeding. This happens, as a rule, by 5.5 months of age. At this time, 5% cereals should be introduced into the child's diet.

The first porridge for a child should be rice. It has a pleasant delicate taste, is easily absorbed by the child's body and practically does not cause allergic reactions. Then every week you can add a new flavor by offering your child oatmeal, buckwheat and corn porridge. As for wheat cereals, it is better to postpone them until the time when the baby is 1-1.5 months old. nine0006

Porridge, like puree, should be introduced gradually, starting with small portions so that by the end of the 2nd week it completely replaces 1 feeding.

At this age, the child can already eat porridge and puree with the addition of butter and vegetable oil. It is recommended to start with a very small amount - 1-3 g.

Despite the fact that cottage cheese contains a large amount of protein, calcium and various salts, it is not recommended to introduce it into the child's diet earlier. The fact is that the intake of cottage cheese increases the load on the kidneys, whose activity is not yet carried out in full. And this can lead to metabolic disorders in the future. nine0006

The same applies to the yolk, the earlier intake of which causes an allergic reaction in the body.

However, even at this age, the yolk must be introduced carefully, starting with a quarter of a hard-boiled egg, mashed with vegetable puree. If there is no negative reaction to the yolk, its amount should be gradually increased and stopped at 0.5 pcs. in a day.

When formula-fed a child at 6 months of age, kefir can be prescribed, although with natural feeding it is introduced into the baby's diet not earlier than 8 months. At the same time, it should be taken into account that in the total volume of dairy products, fermented milk products with high acidity should be no more than 50%.

Whole cow's milk is not recommended for feeding a 6-month-old baby. It may well be replaced by the so-called follow-on formulas, or partially adapted milk formulas.

From 6-7 months the baby can start to be fed with meat. Moreover, at first it is necessary to give boiled meat, liver and tongue in the form of mashed potatoes, and after 9 months - in a not so crushed form.

Meat broth, which stimulates the secretion of gastric juice and often causes an allergic reaction, is not recommended for the baby. Instead, starting from 8-9months, it is recommended to introduce vegetable pureed soups into the child's diet in small portions - 20-30 g with a cracker or a slice of wheat bread (5 g).

At the age of 8-9 months the baby should be accustomed to fish dishes, which are also introduced gradually. As a result, he should receive fish 1-2 times a week instead of meat.

Most children in 10 months have 4 teeth. This means that the food should be coarser so that the baby learns to chew. In this regard, instead of meat puree, he can be offered meat soufflé or meatballs in vegetable soup or with vegetable puree. nine0006

From 11 months babies can be fed various casseroles, puddings, boiled noodles, steam cutlets and minced meat or fish dishes (boiled or steamed), as well as grated raw vegetables and jelly from berries and fruits.

In 12 months, the set of dishes remains the same, however, since the child already has 8 teeth, the consistency of the food should gradually approach that of an adult.

How much liquid to give the child

Both with natural and artificial feeding, the child must be given water to drink. In the first days of life, when his body is adapting to a new environment, and all the processes occurring in it proceed with high energy costs, he needs to be given a fairly large volume of a 5% glucose solution.

As your child grows, the amount of fluid can be reduced according to their needs. However, if the mother's milk is too fatty, the baby must be given water. Moreover, its daily volume should correspond to the double volume of breast milk consumed by him for 1 feeding. nine0006
