Q:

my baby is 7 months.  can I give her fresh orange juice and also the fruit



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello
yeah u can give..
but while giving fruit just squeeze it once bcz sometimes choking happens

Saba Tabassum

fruits u can give .... but i will suggest u to avoid giving citrus fruits untill ur baby is 1 yr old

Roopashree Siddireddy

As all others are suggesting, I too suggest you to squeeze and sieve and give. If it's sour.. don't. If it's sweet you can give. As Saba Tabassum said...if you can avoid till 1 year it's better. Some kids face coughing after having oranges. And wipe mouth immediately after feeding, as skin will dry.

what Roopashree Siddireddy said dat some kids face coughing after having oranges is very true..but apart frm dis citrus fruits r acidic which cause reflex resulting vomiting and diaper rashes...my son s 2 yrs old ...still he vomits after having citrus friuts not always but sometimes..

Roopashree Siddireddy

Saba Tabassum yaa.. exactly. That reflux will be there.

Avoid giving juices as part of the weaning process. Also it's best to wait and offer citrus when the baby is a little older.
