What is the correct way to give a drink to an infant?

From how many months the pediatrician decides to introduce complementary foods, taking into account the individual characteristics of the child (age, what kind of feeding, concomitant disorders).
For children who have reached the age of three, it is permissible to introduce canned or freshly squeezed juice with pulp into the diet. Considering that beta-carotene is absorbed only in the presence of fat, fresh carrot should be consumed with a small portion of vegetable oil (sour cream or cream is also suitable). If, while taking the drink, the baby's skin turns yellow, the product should be removed from the daily menu (including the nursing mother).
For medicinal purposes, carrot juice is used as a tonic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic agent. The vegetable drink is especially useful for children who are lagging behind in mental and physical development.

Before instilling a nose for babies, a little water is added to the composition (in order to avoid burning the delicate mucous membrane).
For babies, the ideal dosage of nectar (which weakens) is 15 ml twice a day.
In order to preserve vitamins and reduce blood pressure, the drug is prepared immediately before use (it cannot be left overnight).
Dosing regimen: drink 15 ml of the composition three times a day (2 hours after a meal or 60 minutes before a meal).
The solution is indicated for the treatment of sore throat and relief of inflammatory processes in the oral cavity (especially for angina, gingivitis and tonsillitis). To eliminate childhood stomatitis, mom needs to wrap her finger with a sterile bandage, and then moisten it abundantly in carrot juice. After that, the finger is inserted into the baby's mouth, carefully processing the gums, throat and pharynx. It is better to do the procedure 3-4 times a day between feedings. A new bandage and a fresh serving of carrot juice should be used for each treatment. Storage of the composition for further use is prohibited, since the drink is quickly oxidized. This method of throat treatment is indicated for both a month-old baby (breastfed) and preschool children (3-5 years old) 
Along with oral administration, carrot juice is used for cosmetic purposes to care for dry, fading and problematic dermis.
Remember, to get the most out of the procedure, it is important to mix the ingredients after they have cooled completely. Duration of exposure of the mixture on the face - 15 minutes. The potato-carrot mask perfectly "heals" young youthful skin prone to the appearance of blackheads, comedones and acne.
Cleansing the face with this composition will help normalize the hydrolipidic balance of the dermis, remove old sebaceous "plugs", and improve the complexion.
Carrot mask with starch is an excellent anti age remedy for women of any age.
Interestingly, to get a beautiful even tan before tanning or sunbathing, you need to drink a glass of carrot juice (preferably in the morning 20 minutes before the procedure).

The tanning agent is applied to the moist dermis, evenly distributing the composition over the body. Such a lotion is stored in the refrigerator.
