Answer: Hi dear first of all please do not introduce cow milk to your 7 month 16 days old child cow milk has a lot of complex protein which the babies digestive system cannot handle hence it can cause severe stomach issues, if your baby has constipation here are few things which might help in releasing it Give steam bath. Massage the stomach. Make his legs exercise in bycycle motion. Give tummy time. Keep feeding him your milk to keep him hydrated. You can try pitted prunes, feed her in paste form. Steamed carrot puree Also in very good. Please avoid offering Banana, Apple Rice and Toast this time. Orange juice can be offered. Warm water sip by sip also works well. Include papaya, plum, peas, pears in diet. Hope this helps!
Answer: U would have started solids. So u can soak raisins in water overnight n give that water to the baby to drink.if the baby started chewing then mash n give the raisins to eat. Ragi wheat banana to certain extent causes constipation
Answer: No, don't give cow milk before one year. For constipation you can give mashed banana, mashed vegetables and your breastmilk. Formula milk also you can give. But don't give cow milk before one year.

Answer: Hi, please avoid giving the baby anything apart from formula milk atleast till the age of 6months. Babies cannot digest anything else apart from breastmilk or formula milk ,hence giving any food now will lead to colic, loose motions and various other problems.

Question: Hlo doctor my baby is 4 month 7 days can i give cow milk her
Answer: Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys.Babies should receive breastmilk and/or formula as their main source of “drink” until they are 12 months of age.
