What are your ideas for starting solids, and what to feed my baby until he is 1 year old, and after that?

Answer by Dherbs

First, I recommend our upcoming manual “The Baby, Toddler, and Small Child Health Manual” But, generally you want to start a baby out on solids after all the baby’s teeth come in. Feed a baby
puree’d fruit and vegetables, but don’t mix them together.

    Q: Thank you for the great advice! :) Our baby has had baby eczema since infancy; however it looks as though it is now getting worse. She has always been and continues to be breastfed; we have supplemented with formula and Gerber baby products once she was ready for solids. She is now eating foods such as oatmeal, whole milk (sometimes we tradeoff between that and baby formula), various fruits and vegetables, meats such as chicken, turkey and beef, pasta, bread, beans, rice, etc. She seems to be more interested in eating carbohydrates than anything else. Also, another question we have is pertaining to my wife's acne and melasma problem which she has had for several years since adolescence (acne) and since she started using contraceptives (melasma). She also has a few crow's feet around her eyes which she would like to get rid of. Do you have any advice and or recommendations for treating these problems? Once again, thank you for the advice and we greatly appreciate your help/suggestions.

    A:

    The baby's diet is unfortunately conducive to eczema. It is greatly acid-forming and needs to be changed immediately. For your wife, have her begin her healing journey by performing the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: My concern is that my baby isn't chewing and he's 2 years old. He does not like solids in his mouth so he spits them out or throws them up. Do you have any suggestions? He's also dealing with eczema. Will the oxygen olive oil clear up his skin? Also, I do work the tuning forks and I'm interested in learning chakra balancing with sound.

    A:

    Baby knows best! If baby doesn't want solids, give baby liquids. Now for eczema, I know we have an article or two up covering â€ECZEMAâ€. Please kindly visit our article section for these articles, as they are loaded with helpful information and remedies. In re: chakras, I am so busy these days that I don't do much teaching anymore.

    Q: I am African American and I have a two-week-old baby girl. I breast feed her, she still spits up all the time and sometimes it comes out through her nose. Saliva builds up in her mouth where it is difficult for her to breathe. She has thick white film on her tongue, and she has small tiny red bumps all over her face. I desperately need some advice to cure these ailments.

    A:

    Your baby's colon is taxed and it sounds like from YOUR diet. Watch what you eat for your baby's sake. Start taking MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Her face is breaking out because her colon is not working. The skin is the largest organ of elimination so the skin is being used to help the baby eliminate!

    Q: I have a 7 month old baby girl name Neffera. I breast fed her for about 4 1/2 months. I have been giving her soy infant formula and really do not feel right about it. I also have been giving her the Gerber organic green beans, peas, applesauce, ect. She has a lot of congestion and mucus like I have never seen before ever in a baby. I am not sure what has caused all of this mucus, but I want to strengthen her immune system and feed her better. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Wow, Beloved! I'll tell you what caused all that mucus: the soy-based infant formula which is crap!!!! Plus, those baby foods. Gerber's is CRAP!!!!! You must undo the damage you unintentionally done via ignorance. Please read our article on "ALTERNATIVE INFANT FORMULA MILK" and learn to make alternative formulas for your baby. You must also start making your own baby food. You must do these things to reverse the serious harm you've done to your baby. All wrong can be righted by doing the right thing. I would highly, highly, highly recommend you schedule a 1-hour health consultation (only $100) a.s.a.p. There's just so much that needs to be explained to you so that child can make a speedy recovery. Time here won't allow it, so a consultation is best!

    Q: I am having a hard time getting pregnant. I am 38, did FSH blood- GREAT, HSG- tubes open, uterus clear, Semen Analysis- great.... but no baby. I have a 4 1/2 year old child and I had no problems. What can you suggest? Not good with fasting really- but can you give me some ideas on what to take?

    A:

    It may be your mate, Beloved. Both of you should work on yourselves. Not necessarily "fasting", but cleansing (TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, TOTAL MALE CLEANSE) and then you should perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE.

    Q: After I had my baby over a year ago I've had a constant discharge. There is no foul order just thin white. I've been to the Doc four times she says I had Bacteria Vaginosis and treated it with gel. Its back! Can I do a cleanse to get rid of this or change my diet. I'm vegetarian but I occasionally have pizza with cheese. Help!

    A:

    There is help for you. I would highly recommend that you perform our Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse. Using a gel is only masking the problem. You need to address the root of the problem, and herbs can successfully attack the root of the problem.

    Q: Do you have any herbs for baby reflux? My daughter gives her baby boy soymilk. I told her soy milk makes mucus among other reasons. What other alternative for soymilk other than breast milk?

    A:

    Make a tea using anise seed and/or caraway seed, sweeten it with maple syrup, and add a little lemon and put in a baby bottle and give to the baby. However, remove the acid foods. Tell her to use hemp, almond, or rice milk. They are far better than soy milk.

    Q: My baby and I have developed a bug! We've been in hospital since last night. My temperature is 41 degrees my baby's 37. We're both on a drip; getting antibiotics both are very dehydrated. All my family are blaming dherbs but I know better. Please send me something I can READ TO MY FAMILY AND REASSURE THEM THAT DHERBS IS NOT THE REASON. KIND REGARDS. GOD BLESS YOU

    A:

    I can assure you herbs do not cause what you are experiencing. A bug may be doctor's lingo for any healing crisis. However, a bug is not a form of healing crisis. If you would have suffered from anything herbally, those doctors would have told you. A bug is a so-called virus (in doctor's lore) but viruses do not exist. Virus means "poison" as in "poisonous blood" and herbs do not poison the blood but simply remove poisons from the blood. If your family wants to legitimately blame Dherbs, get a blood analysis done. But again, the doctors have told you that you developed a bug. They didn't say you had an allergic reaction to anything. From time to time we experience these problems with people but it's always limited to the person's specific case. Breast-feeding does not weaken the body. Toxins do not go into the breasts but exit via the eliminative channels. My wife performed the FULL BODY DETOX while breast-feeding our 2-month old son and absolutely NADA! I always tell people to deal with a situation and when they get back on their feet show people wrong by performing your desired cleanse successfully. You're not the first situation of this sort. Not at all! Hang in there, Love!

    Q: Hello, I enjoyed reading the information on your website. I have many questions, but my concern is that I am 43 year old African- American female, who would be classified as obese. Last year I had a miscarriage, which was devastating to me though we were not trying to get pregnant. I have a 16 year old healthy son. The doctor wanted me to have a hysterectomy because of my age and reported that I had non-cancerous fibroids. I chose not to as if I have the opportunity to get pregnant again, I would like to carry my baby to full term and deliver another healthy baby. My question is: which would you suggest I do first (as we know, time is a factor)? Should I do the full body detox and then the weight cleanse? I don't want to do the fertility program, but I'm not sure exactly why I lost my baby. I know stress played a major factor (I quit that high-stress job I was on) and after reading your website, realized that weight played a much larger role than I wanted to realize. I'm not trying to actively get pregnant, but because it remains a possibility, I would like to be as healthy as possible. My partner and I broke up shortly after the miscarriage, but have recently recommitted to a relationship again after almost a year apart. I am sorry for this long email, but your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely

    A:

    First perform the FULL BODY DETOXfirst followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.

    Q: My daughter of 21 months has developed what's called baby eczema on her both her arms near the elbows, her wrist, and face. We would really like to heal her from this condition. She itches, and it's hard to have her avoid this. Do you have any advisory for us in healing baby eczema? Btw, we're in Los Angeles as well. Do you have a storefront that we can visit?

    A:

    What is the baby eating (consuming) daily? Was she on formula milk? I would recommend giving the baby our BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC TEA to drink (add maple syrup and a lemon juice) in a bottle and apply HEALING SKIN OIL to her skin daily. Read our article entitled "ECZEMA" located in our "Articles" department. Good information!

    Q: Hi I have a soon to be 5 month old. What are your thoughts about how long a mother should breast-feed? What foods should be introduced? I currently breast feed, and what to keep my sons immunity up. Thanks!

    A:

    The proper time for solid foods is at the time the teeth come in (for chewing purposes). However, you can feed a baby puree'd foods beginning at age 6 months. A woman should breastfeed if she can for 2 years, or until the teeth come in and/or the baby doesn't want breastmilk anymore. The first foods should be puree'd fruits followed by vegetables. But never grains (at least for the first 2 years of life).

    Q: In less than a year, I had two miscarriages with there being a fetal pole, but no heartbeat. Both babies died between 7-8 weeks. My last baby, I had an emergency c-section. During that time (either before or afterwards), I had a major infection in which I was given antibiotics for 4 days. Then once the infection was gone (so they say), my blood pressure went up. Because I am not a medicine taker (especially since I had hypertension with the two pregnancies before the last one and the medicine never worked), I refused to take the ONE pill that they say would make my blood pressure go down. Today, my pressure is pretty stable. Anyway, I was wondering if you think that the miscarriages have been caused by the infection or is there something still wrong with my body due to the c-section. What do you recommend that I do in order to get my body back so that so I can safely and fully carry another baby to term if it happens again that I will get pregnant? I can't lose another baby. I will be totally devastated. By the way, neither I nor my husband wants to do birth control. I don't want to have my tubes tied because I believe there are some underlying negative causes that can effect the body and I particularly do not want to put anything foreign in my body, i.e. IUD. I have been told that I cannot take Birth Control Pills due to my history with hypertension. What can I do?

    A:

    The miscarriages are more spiritual than anything. Babies have no soul until after birth, so until birth, you only have biological entities forming in your body, so you are dealing with physical health problems. You need to work on strengthening your reproductive system. Evidently you system is weak. The C-section was unnecessary and doctors did it to make money. That's all. You don't do a C-section for a fetus of 7-8 weeks. That's ludicrous! Antibiotics? Those things are dangerous and are still in your body until you detox. The poisonous drugs they put in your body caused the Hypertension. Beloved, here's what I would recommend in your case: first perform the FULL BODY DETOX that will target all of the above. After this, perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. After this cleanse, perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE (which is optional in your case). You don't need birth control pills or any foreign device in your body. Just change your thoughts (see yourself pregnant, holding/nursing your baby), develop a healthy attitude (that you are worthy of holding a baby to term). Change your diet (vegan is best, eat more raw foods; fruits and vegetables). Drink Dherbs FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily. Remove all fears that you cannot hold a baby. Remove all thoughts about a 3rd miscarriage and how you will be devastated as you are setting yourself up for this by the very thought. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com

    Q: I don't know if you remember or know, but there was a Vegan Couple that had a newborn baby, and the baby had died from what seemed to be a lack a of nutrients because the couple fed the baby a vegan diet. If you remember this, what do you think went wrong.

    A:

    The couple was from Atlanta! What went wrong is that while they were well-intentioned, they were ignorant, ignorant to true nutrition. They fed the baby soy milk, and soy milk does not contain nutrition. They didn't supplement the soy milk with nutrition which they could have done with herbs such as alfalfa, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, etc.

    Q: I am a 38-year-old Black woman, and my husband and I want to have a baby. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which has caused me to be infertile. My egg count is very high, and my husband has a good sperm count. My Fallopian tubes are open. My body just doesn't produce enough progesterone. I have taken two rounds of clomid, and I did ovulate both times; however, I didn't time it correctly, so my husband and I didn't have intercourse at the right time. I would really prefer to pursue a natural route to getting pregnant. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help! Rasheda

    A:

    We recommend doing with the Full Body cleanse to detox your body of waste and toxins that often contribute to health ailments like such. In doing the cleanse, you're detoxing all of your major organs giving your body the reset it needs to function properly. Your body is more receptive to healing itself when your overall health is in a better place. Move on to The Female Cleanse to specifically help aid with the conditions of PCOS. After addressing the PCOS you can move on to the Fertility Cleanse to help with conceiving if you're still experiencing difficulties.

    Q: I will be starting a fast for Ramadan in August. What suggestions do you have for cleansing during fasting? I do not eat meat except, fish 1-2 times a week. I've been having problems with gas after eating, even fruits or veggies. I usually have 2-3 bowel movements per day. I am a 56 year old male with good health, except for my problems with gas, varicose veins and leg cramps especially during fasting.

    A:

    Cleanses for Ramadan should be LIQUID-based i.e. Liquid Full Body Detox, or perhaps drinking herbal teas i.e. Detox Tea. To combat or counter your gas (flatulence), start consuming Activated Charcoal (Carbon) 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily (anytime of the day you feel like it). Work on your colon too. We suggest you try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse to help this problem of gas.

    Q: I am the mother of a 2 yr old that suffers from eczema terribly. Not only does she have eczema she suffers from a host of food allergies. My baby also is very emotional and hyper sensitive. I have worked with herbalists in the past that seemed to help. Doing my research I learned that they were not really helping me but keeping my baby hooked on their remedies instead of teaching me how to keep my baby strong. I don't have a problem purchasing remedies, but this person was upwards of 200-300 per month. I am a single mother and cannot afford that. I have looked into your products and would like to begin my daughter on a regiment that would help her. Right now my daughter is suffering from severe itching of her legs, arms, everywhere and it happens mostly at night or when she feels she has not had her way. Help!!!!!

    A:

    All understanding of healing begins with knowledge and healing itself begins in the mind. See your child well and the child will get well. Check out our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL. Good reading! Please read our article on "ECZEMA" and "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" in our articles section. It's not so much about taking products but modifying the diet. Most children with eczema are fed a horrible and poor diet rich in meat, dairy products, refined grains, etc. that only exacerbates the problem. Rub the child's skin down with Shea Butter. Alternate with our HEALING SKIN OIL. The child's bed should be draped in the color blue, the antidote to the color red, the color of burning inflammation. bed sheets, spread, pillows, etc should be blue or light blue. I'd even paint the walls of the child's bedroom sky blue due to its soothing effect. It's a shame that some herbalists are only about the money. At Dherbs, we are all about education which is why our site is laced with so much information. Stay positive and optimistic!
