Answer: Hi mom
Bm or FM is the main source of nutrition for the baby till one year.
And up-to 6 months exclusive bm or FM is more than enough
Please do not give water too as the baby gets all the nutrients it needs from bm.
After 6 months
Why don't u start with family food.
Start introducing finger food like boiled carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, boiled apple slices etc.
Start giving the baby 3 meals and 2 snacks.
Meals can include breakfast, lunch and dinner
Give the baby dosa, idli, chilla, upma, chapati, etc. Make sure the peices are not too big.
You can include rice, daal, vegetables fry.
Don't give cerelac, purees and juices.
Do not give salt and sugar till one year.
Best is to include the baby in what we eat. This way the baby gets to see you eat and will replicate the same.
