Question:Can I start solids at 5 months 20 days.... My babies are twins born on 37 weeks... They are completely on formula milk because of my health issues
Answer: Hey congratulations finally your baby will be experiencing all delicious foid cooked by you.
Its an overwhelming moment for both mother and baby. As baby will be tasting new array of food, breastmilk will still be major part of his diet.
For intial few days don't expect your baby to finish of his meal. Its just got him to get used to the taste. Always feed one food item at a time. Don't mix sugar or salt to his food. Baby has never tasted it so he ll never know the difference.
Now coming to meal planning-
9-10am Breakfast (apple puree/Banana puree/ragi porridge /oats porridge /Barley porridge/Suji kheer
2-3 pm Lunch (rice/ moong dal/ Carrot puree/Potato puree/Pumpkin Puree/Cauliflower puree/Broccoli puree
For rest of the day give him breastmilk.
Once he is accustomed to the food and all chances of allergy and discomfort is eliminated you can include solids on dinner as well.
Question:My baby is 5 months 20 days old. Can I start giving him cow milk now?
Answer: Hello dear. Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants. Cows milk has to be given only after 1 year, and only after diluting.
