Question: My baby is 4 months 3 days when can i start semi solid food to him
Answer: Mothers are usually recommended to exclusively breastfeed for their baby’s first six months.
After six months, breastmilk alone doesn't provide your baby with enough nutrients, particularly iron, so you will need to gradually introduce other foods.
Waiting until six months to introduce your baby to solid food protects her health. It reduces the chance that she will develop allergies or pick up an infection from food.
Question: can i start feeding my baby solid food?how will I know when to start?
Answer: It would be to introduce solids to your baby only after 6 months. Till then it is best to keep then on breast/formula feed.
If at all in any case you are willing to start solids, then it would be nice to start with semi solids with out salt or sugar added in very little amount in beggining. Once your baby is adjusted to the food, then slowly you can increase the quantity.
