Can breastmilk alone provide enough nutrients for my 4-months-old baby? When should the solid food be introduced?

Can breastmilk alone provide enough nutrients for my 4-months-old baby? When should the solid food be introduced?

Breastmilk is still the ideal food for your 4-months-old baby because of its components, including nutrients, antibodies, and living cells. When your baby is about six months old, introduce solid food in addition to breastmilk. Your baby will need to obtain a variety of nutrients from solid food and learn to eat food with different textures. When your baby tries out new food while continuing breastfeeding, it will help your breastfed baby to reduce the chance of food allergies.

Therefore, World Health Organization recommends babies should be breastfed exclusively in the first 6 months and continue to be breastfed until 2 years or above while solid food is being introduced to their diet.
