Plastic bowl and spoon should be strictly avoided. 2. Feed the baby is calm and comfortable position and head should be up completely. 3. Start with few tsp of the food and slowly increase the quantity . 4. prefer pureed and mashed foods only baby might have chocking issues. 5. Start with fruit puree first. 6.
