Answer: Hi! Diluted Cow milk with a little water is Ok but no jaggery for a 6 months old, you can use date syrup home made not store bought. According to WHO salt and sugar poses risk to small babies. Baby should be weaned off with normal food which you all eat as a family minus salt and sugar till 1 yr. You can start giving apple sauce, mashed banana, steamed carrot, pumpkin, oats porridge etc as her few first food. Please do not offer much sugary food as it developes sweet tooth for the child which again is harmful in the long run. Hope this helps!

Question: Can I add cow milk with porridge for my baby
Answer: Dear cow milk is not recommendes until ur baby turns 1 yr old. Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants. Hope it helps.
