Answer: Hi dear.. u have to have more patience in that case and just try to give formula milk in a small quantity but mother's milk is the best milk for 5months babies.. try to keep her calm with some music and then try for bottle milk if u don't have enough breast milk.. but let me know u that as much as u breastfeed ur breast milk will increase day by day.. for increasing that u can have some foods which produce breast milk like spinach, garlic, fennel seeds, carrots, bottle gourd and it's leaf, nuts etc.. it will help u to increase ur breast milk, so that ur baby can have it more to gain a good growth.. so keep calm and have patience during this period and don't worry if u go through all these processes, it will help u..

Question: My baby is 6 months old..she is rigid with any food or formula milk apart from breast milk. She don't like bottle feed or spoon feed..please suggest what to do
Answer: Dear if baby is not taking formula milk it is fine as long as you are breast feeding. And inregard to food try some variety of foods. Also you need to apply 3 days rules to any food introduce so if your baby doesn't accept the food the first and second time do remember baby tales atleast 3 days to accept a new food. 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.
