Question: My baby is not having fm or bm.. can o give semi solid food only
Answer: Hi dear,
Yes,you can start giving solid diet along with breastfeed.remember the motive is to introduce variety of solids for taste and texture and not to increase weight through it.start very slow by introducing one solid at a time.watch out for any kind of indigestion or allergies.Home cooked food is more beneficial as they are fresh and free from any preservatives. Try giving him mashed banana,boiled mashed apple.ragi porridge with pinch of jaggery. Mashed boiled rice with daal water. Clear vegetable soups,tomato soups .mashed veggies like carrot and potato.homecooked idly is easy to digest too.khichdi is excellent now.you can also add some spices like jeera to add flavor.remember not to put salt in food before 1 year.youay add just a pinch so it doesn't appear bland.beleive me that much salt is just right.donot introduce cow milk products before 1 year,as this could give baby lactose intolerance.whole wheat roti dipp d it daal could also be given .juices should always be given in diluted form and never concentrated from.biscuits should be avoided too.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
Question: hi my baby3months old can i giv her fm..she on bm only which fm is good for bbay
Answer: Yes u can incase u r falling short of breast feed. I prefer Nan....it is a more highly engineered formula to make it similar to mothers milk in terms of the whey and casein protein balance. It also has probiotics to help settle tummy. If a simple question is asked as to which is better, it's clearly Nan, if similarity to mothers milk is the benchmark. However lactogen is cheaper so if lactogen better fits with a family's finances or suits baby better in anyway then it's ok.
