How many days should a baby try a new food?

Veggies, Fruit, Fish, and Meat. There's no specific order to introducing foods. Just wait two to three days in between new foods. This way, if your baby develops a rash or a little upset stomach, you'll be able to pinpoint the cause.

Beside this, which foods to introduce first to baby?

If your baby is breastfed, the AAP suggests meat as a first food because the iron in beef, chicken, and turkey helps to replace her iron stores, which start to diminish at about 6 months of age. Other good first foods include pureed sweet potatoes, squash, applesauce, bananas, peaches, and pears.

What foods to start your baby on?

Age: 6 to 8 months
  • Breast milk or formula, PLUS.
  • Pureed or strained fruits (banana, pears, applesauce, peaches, avocado)
  • Pureed or strained vegetables (well-cooked carrots, squash, sweet potato)
  • Pureed meat (chicken, pork, beef)
  • Pureed tofu.
  • Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1)
