Answer: Hi.. Dear breast feed or formula milk for complete six months, nothing else.. Normal milk can be given after an year. However, after completion of six months you can give boiled cereal water first (dal ka pani), then semi liquid porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentil and rice porridges), boiled and mashed potatoes, bananas (mashed or in the form of smoothie). Avoid bananas during winters. If the baby is able to digest these food sources, then introduce ragi, oats, dalia..

Answer: The best time to start solids is only after 6 months . Yes before 6 months the enzymes are not completely build that help the food to digest. And early start of solids may lead to colic, digestive issues etc. So wait till 6 months is a worth. Also baby takes 4-6 months to hold the neck completely . A strong head to neck control helps the baby to accept solids well and can easily swallow.
