    I'm not sure why a child would have low sodium levels, but it seems pretty obvious how you could fix the problem. Use salt....Has your child started eating table food yet? I use salt in almost all my cooking- I modify the amount when I know my daughter is eating what I am eating (I love salt, so I add more to my plate.) I cook her whole grain pasta and brown rice. To flavor things up I use small amounts of salted butter and cheese. I have a cookbook for her babyfood called- "The best Homemade Babyfood on the Planet'. by Karin Knight, RN and Tina Ruggiero, MS, RD, LD. Tons of great food ideas for you and your baby! Hope this helps

    Hi and welcome,

    Make sure you talk to your baby's doctor about this. Don't introduce salt as a fix just yet. Make sure you know how much she may need and if that's what the doctor would recommend for this. Ask questions, call the docs office and share your concerns.
    Let us know how things go please!
