Question: hi my daughter is going to 8 months next week she has not gained weight from 6th month her current weight is 7.4kilo it was 7.2 at start of 6 month how can I help my daughter gain weight
Answer: You should introduce some softly mashed, or chopped into fine pieces of fruits, vegetables, meats, pasta and dairy such as curd and cheeses.
Veggies and fruit should all be soft cooked and possibly mashed with a fork or masher. (Bananas need only be mashed.)
Raw fruits are often introduced at this stage.
Meats and proteins such as egg yolk, should be cooked and pureed or chopped into small soft bits.
Remember, baby will not have molars until sometime around the 14-18 month age range. Foods should be easily mashed between the gums.
You can feed these food 3- 6 times a day... along with breast milk.
