Question: My son is 3 months 21 days old. When can I start cerelac for him
Answer: The Indian Pediatrics Academy and the Women and Child Development Ministry recommend breast milk for your baby until he or she is 6 months old. This is because your breast milk has all essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fat, water, sugar, proteins and antibodies that are required for your baby.
Your baby must be drinking about 6 ounces of breast milk for 4 to 6 times per day if he is 4 months old. Same rule applies to those babies who drink formula milk if mother’s milk is scarce.
