stage 3


Stage 3 is when the on-set of teething usually begins and this is the time to help your baby develop his chewing abilities.

NESTLÉ CERELAC Stage 3 is designed to help your baby learn chewing by the introduction of small chunks of fruits and corn pieces.

NESTLÉ CERELAC Stage 3 consists of the following yummy variants: 

  • NESTLÉ CERELAC Apple Pear Strawberry
  • NESTLÉ CERELAC Apple Orange

Psychomotor Milsestones

  • Your baby is just entering Stage 3. His increasing liveliness and curiosity is opening up a whole new world before his eyes. What a joy it is to see him progressing so fast. But it is also a time when you need to be more vigilant than ever.
  • Your baby is now stronger, and can hold himself upright on his legs, when supported. He can sit back up all by himself (but be careful, he might often topple over!). Your baby can now get hold of objects between thumb and forefinger, and move them from one hand to another. He starts looking for objects he has lost.

Time to take safety Measures

  • Keep an eye for situations that maybe dangerous for your baby.
  • Remember to protect him from the sharp corners of coffee tables.
  • Cover the electrical sockets using socket covers.
  • Keep all of your cleaning products and medicines out of the baby’s reach.
  • Do not leave dry fruit, small sweets or other chocking hazard objects within his reach.
  • He is becoming more and more aware of his own identity and is delighted to let you know, even if it means screaming until you take notice of him!
  • With time, the changing contrasting behaviors come into the scene as now he goes quickly from cuddly to impulsive, from smiling to grumpy and now shows more of an interest in other babies.

Food Related Abilities

  • Baby is beginning to be able to wait a little before satisfying his hunger – his meals can now be spaced out a little.
  • Your baby is beginning to coordinate his swallowing and breathing better. Since he is now curious about almost everything, all he wants to do is make new discoveries, and his new capacities enable him to do just that! Make the most of it to develop his diet and share these warm moments of complicity together.


The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breast-feeding for the first 6 months. Consult your doctor for advice on when to introduce complementary foods to your baby. Breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible after introduction of complementary foods.
