Question:My baby is 1 yr n 8 months old. She has not started eating some sort of solid food yet!!! Kindly suggest
Answer: Hi! Its because the of the texture, since no texture was not introduced at an early age he is used to have pureed food. Try giving finger food instead. Big enough for him to hold and chomp. Something soft like a piece of ripe guava, or cooked carrot or pumpkin, or steamed apple. Let him hold and eat it. Even better is something crunchy that breaks up easily in the mouth like a paper dosa or rawa uttapam. It is normal to gag when they first start solids (puree does not really count in terms of texture) is very normal. It will gradually get better as he gets used to manipulate the food in the mouth. But if you leave it too long, the gag reflex is actually going to stay further so it is more difficult for baby to make the transition. Hope this helps!
Question:My baby 9 months old she is not at all eating solid nd semi solid foods...
Answer: Hi.. Dear milk remains the prior part of your baby's diet other than that you need to experiment with your baby's favourite choices.. Make new dishes and see which your toddler likes.. You can make different porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentils and rice, only veggies), make different soups, give mashed potatoes, you can also give suji dishes (DO NOT ADD SUGAR OR SALT IF YOUR BABY IS YOUNGER THAN AN YEAR).. Also, try to include wheat bran, cashew nuts, and pumpkin seeds in your child 's meal.. It helps in building appetite.. You can divide these dishes as per as your convenience in the form of three regular meals.. Start with small bowls, then gradually you can increase the quantity..
Question:Hello ma'am My baby has entered in 8th month.. But she was not interested in eating solid food
Answer: Try feeding at short intervals and small meals. U can also give vegetable soup as it helps in increasing apetite of the baby. A home remedy thag I always use whevever my baby stops eating. Take a lemon put black salt in it and use toothpick to put it inside the lemon now put the lemon on a spoon and heat it till the black salt melts and goes inside the lemon. Now take it off the flame. Make ur child lick it. Trust me it works.
