Answer: Hi dear, Baby sucking actually help to increase breast milk, offer your breast when baby more hungry. Masur Dal... This is most important. Take everyday one glass masur dal with ghee. Add Oatmeal...Cinnamon or honey..... Spinach... Garlic. ...Brewer's yeast...Fenugreek. ...Apricots... In your diet as much as possible. And if your milk is not sufficient then you can start formula milk. And after 1 month you can start semi solid food like fruit puree and vegetables soup and from 7th month you can add grains in your baby diet.

Question: My baby is 4 months can i start giving her solid food as her milk intake is less.
Answer: Hi dear, Eatables for less than 6 months old baby is not recommended coz baby's digestive is very very slow he/she cannot digest solids or semi solids. Breast milk should be the only source of nutrition for him till 6 months. Giving food to such a small baby can lead to various stomach problems like loose motions, fever, stomach pain or baby can become cranky. Even Dr doesn't recommend to give Eatables to such a small baby.  Wait for few more months mommy! 😇

Answer: You can start solids when baby finishes six months. You can start with banana, apple, boiled potato, boiled carrot, cerelac or nestum etc. Start only one food at a time and wait for three days to know if baby has allergy to food, baby is able to digest food.
