Yogurt for babies

I introduced yogurt to Dillon when he was around 8 months old. It may be introduced as early as 7 months old but the typical age recommendation is 8 months old, depending on your baby’s pediatrician and your baby’s propensity to allergies. Read the Yogurt Tips article if you have doubt.

Yogurt is a great way for baby to get calcium and the “bacteria” in yogurt that is so good for our digestive systems. Yogurt is also a great way for baby to get the fat that is so highly needed during baby’s first year.

Dillon has been fine since I fed him yogurt, just that after taking yogurt, he tends to have more bowel movement (not stomach discomfort) on that day, which is perfectly normal. Having said that, it might help baby who experience constipation problem too.

However, I think it should be fed moderately to baby, normally I would only feed yogurt twice a week at most to Dillon.
