Answer: Hi dear 1st you have to identify if your baby is ready got solid food Some tips: Your baby is able to sit on a chair with back support. Baby’s head & neck are stable. Baby can open and close the mouth around a spoon. Baby is ready to chew. He is curious and tries to grab & put food in his mouth. Baby is still hungry after breastfeeding/formula feeding & shows interest in food. If above points are checked then you can follow bellow: Breast milk or formula milk Mashed banana Stewed apple Well steamed and pureed vegetables like carrots, sweet potato, pumpkin , french beans Pulse soup (moong dal ka pani) Rice Water (Chawal ka pani) Homemade single grain cereals like rice, barley, oats mixed with breastmilk or formula milk Steamed and pureed fruits like pear, avocado, peach, chikoo.

A strong head to neck control helps the baby to accept solids well and can easily swallow.
