Question: My baby boy was 7months I am giving ragi malt 2 times a day and feeding also is it safe
Answer: Yes dear it is absolutely safe and healthy however by 7 months you should have started so much other things in food for your baby. Byt this time baby should be introduced to many varieties of fruits and vegetables.
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)
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: Can i start giving ragi malt to my baby as she is 5 month 10 days baby
Please breast feed your baby exclusively for the first 6 months not only is your breast milk easy to digest but contains essential nutrients, fats and antibodies which will help baby to grow , develop and fight illness if any
Your babys digestive system is immature at 3 months he might not be able to digest any thing other than breast milk hence would suggest wait untill your baby turns 6 months
Question: My baby is complete 6 months I give him to ragi malt only 5 spoon next day he has motion doctor give sporlac I give to baby still not controlling motion what to do I stop giving ragi malt?
Answer: Dear actually Ragi is completely new food for baby's digestion and whenever you start new food for baby it can cause Loose Motion because baby's digestion needs time to adjust with the change . So don't worry don't give anything to eat to baby till his loose motions are fine except breast milk or formula milk. and after that start with liquid diet first like rice water, dal water and then gradually start some semi solid food. Also give only 4-5 spoons and then gradually increase the quantity also..
