      Baby Diet Chart: What to Feed Your Baby From Birth to 1 Year?

      Updated on 31 October 2022

      Being a new parent can be challenging, especially regarding food. Breast milk or formula should be given in the early few months. As the baby starts growing, start giving different types of a healthy diet for the growth and development of the baby. A new parent may have many queries, like how many ounces the baby should take, why they always seem hungry, and when they should start eating solids. Here, we share a comprehensive baby diet chart from birth until it turns 1-year-old.

      Baby diet chart: From birth to 6 months

      The digestive system is still under development at this age, and it cannot take solid foods. Only feed breast milk or formula to the newborn until four months. Here is a breakdown of the baby diet chart from 0-6 months:

      • 0-1 month

      Breast milk every 2-3 hours and formula (2-3 ounces) every 3-4 hours; whether it is breast milk or formula, continue to feed your baby on demand 8-12 feedings/day.

      • 1-2 months

      Breast milk (8 to 12 feeds/day) every 2-3 hours or formula (7-8 feeds in a day) approximately 4 ounces.

      • 2-4 months

      Breast milk (6-7 feeding in a day) every 3-4 hours or formula, around (6 feeding a day) about 4-6 ounces.

      • 4-6 months

      Breast milk (around 7 feedings per day) every 3-4 hours or formula (6 to 7 feedings per day) around 4-8 ounces; start giving cereal too.

      Usually, solid foods can be included anytime when the baby is 4-6 months old. In the early months, solids should be pureed. Include solid food one at a time and in small quantities, like 1 or 2 tablespoons, and increase the amount. Parents may start with infant cereals and introduce pureed fruit, vegetables, and meat later.

      6-month Baby Diet Chart

      Design a diet chart for babies, which will have all the healthy nutrients. Here is the complete 6-month baby diet chart:


      • Start one spoon of apple puree once a day

      • Increase the number of purees to twice a day as time passes. Gradually, introduce a new solid, probably a vegetable.

      • Give carrot puree a tablespoon once a day. Later increase it to 3 tablespoons twice a day.

      • Stick to apple puree in the morning and carrot puree in the evening during this week

      Closing words

      What to feed a baby is the primary concern for every parent. Give them the right food at the right time and pay attention to their reaction to the food. Most babies will respond with their actions whether they are hungry or not. If you have any questions or concerns, take help from the paediatrician.
