Abstract

A significant worry for a new mother is ensuring the baby is happy and healthy. Taking care of aninfant can be quite challenging and knowing when and how to feed them is another obstacle. To make sure a baby is healthily growing, the baby needs to be fed. The main objective of our internship project was to create resources for women to educate them on the right foods to feed their infants. Finding the right foods to feed a child is quite challenging since there are over 160 allergenic foods and some are more allergenic than others, including cow’s milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and fish. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends introducing these allergy-inducing foods when the baby is ready to eat solids. New research has shown that for babies at high risk of developing a peanut allergy, giving them peanuts between four to six months of age can greatly reduce the risk of developing the allergy. With the guidance of Family First Physicians, a private practice that provides many services such as women’s health, healthy lifestyle, aesthetics, and pediatrics, we were able to provide the resources by creating an online introduction course to infant feeding.
