Babies are the most vulnerable to infection and disease because of their under-developed immune systems. There is nothing more frightening than when your baby is unwell. Babies can inherit diseases from their parents and they can also develop diseases particularly if they are introduced to the wrong foods from a young age.
All babies should have the mother’s breast milk. If you are unable to breastfeed, then there are formula options. However, breast is best. Breast milk is full of important antibodies and nutrients that your baby needs to grow big and strong. Breast milk also plays a huge part in the development of the babies immune system. 
As your baby grows older and is ready to be weaned, you should look at foods to introduce to your baby’s diet. Finger foods are good but ensuring they are soft and digestible enough for your baby to manage. Gluten is considered a no go for babies before 6 months. After 6 months it’s recommended to introduce gluten, but gluten can be troublesome, so watch how much bread and sandwiches you are giving. Too much gluten in any diet can lead to digestive discomfort.
Making sure your baby has a diet rich in dietary fibre, complex carbohydrates , protein and fat, will help to ensure your baby has a balanced diet. You should also consider bone broth. Broth is full of important nutrients and minerals, which could help with growth and development of your baby’s body. Natural probiotics are important for anyone’s diet, so introducing them slowly from a young age in the form of fermented drinks or food, could really help to replenish depleted gut bacteria, particularly if your baby has had antibiotics under the age of 1 years old.
