Question: My baby is 5 months 3 weeks now. My breast milk is not sufficient, so i am giving ragi milk since she is 4 months old. I am giving ragi twice in a day. Is ragi good for her? And what other solid food i can give to her now?.
Answer: Ragi is good dear. Below are some type of foods which u can give to ur baby :-
1.) Pureed vegetables (sweet potatoes, squash)
2.) Pureed fruit (apples, bananas, peaches)
3.) Pureed meat (chicken, pork, beef)
4.) Semi-liquid, iron-fortified cereal.
5.) Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1)
Some finger food favorites:
O-shaped toasted oat cereal; small chunks of banana or other very ripe, peeled fruit like mango, plum, pear, peach, cantaloupe, or seedless watermelon; small cubes of tofu; well-cooked pasta spirals, cut into pieces; thin cheese strips or very small chunks of cheese; cut-up seedless grapes ...
Most pediatricians recommend starting your infant on Yogurt around 7-8 months of age. Some pediatricians also recommend yogurtas a great first food (from 6 months+). Selecting a Whole Milk Yogurt is the most beneficial to your infant as babies need fats in their diets for proper growth.
You can give ur baby a variety of food but in a puree or porridge state.
Breakfast idly with breast milk or formula upma
Roti with milk or formula mashed dosa mashed
Snack boiled apple mashed banana puree vegetable soup diluted fresh fruit juices ragi milk ghee sugar
Lunch dal rice mashed khichdi sooji kheer cerelac or nestum
Snack whole grain puffs mashed potatoes tossed in butter peach puree
Dinner should always be light as hard carbohydrate like wheat ragi dal can cause indigestion or loose motions
Give sooji kheer nestum or cerelac by 8 pm u can keep feeding ur baby breast milk or formula as needed between the meals. Be sure to use alot of ghee as fats and oils help in gaining weight.
Hope i helped.

Question: My 3 months old baby not pooped last 8 days.. I am so worried and scared.. What should I do now? I am giving only breast milk..
Answer: Hello! There is nothing to worry. A breastfed baby can poop once in 10 days and it is normal. But even after 10 days baby doesn't poop then take her to the doctor. The doctor will give laxatives and the baby will do potty.
