Answer: Hey congratulations finally your baby will be experiencing all delicious foid cooked by you.
Its an overwhelming moment for both mother and baby. As baby will be tasting new array of food, breastmilk will still be major part of his diet.
For intial few days don't expect your baby to finish of his meal. Its just got him to get used to the taste. Always feed one food item at a time. Don't mix sugar or salt to his food. Baby has never tasted it so he ll never know the difference.
Now coming to meal planning-
9-10am Breakfast (apple puree/Banana puree/ragi porridge /oats porridge /Barley porridge/Suji kheer
2-3 pm Lunch (rice/ moong dal/ Carrot puree/Potato puree/Pumpkin Puree/Cauliflower puree/Broccoli puree
For rest of the day give him breastmilk.
Once he is accustomed to the food and all chances of allergy and discomfort is eliminated you can include solids on dinner as well.
