Answer: Hi dear, It is recommended to feed only your breast milk till 6 months because it contains antibodies that fight against infections. Baby can easily digest breast milk. If your baby has good control on his head and sitting with support means you can introduce semi solids to your baby. 1.Cooked rice water 2.Dal water 3.Fruit puree 4.veg puree Before giving more, first introduce 1 or 2 spoons. Wait for a day if baby can digest it, you increase it gradually. Take care Hope this will help you
Answer: Hello dear... According to pediatrician,Breast milk is only needed for six months,after six months can introduce solids like ragi porridge,wheat porridge,cerelac,but whatever you feed , should be in semisolid consistency,sothat it is easily to swallow and digestible

Question: My baby is 5 months old should I give some Sami solid food to him
Answer: Hi till 6 months you should not give anything other than breastmilk as baby may not be able to digest the food and may suffer with constipation or indigestion so it is better to avoid giving semisolid food to baby before six months. Once baby complete 6months you can start with semi solid food such as rice water dal water date syrup fruit puree vegetable soup cerelac. Take care

Question: My baby is 5 mnt old can i give him solid food
Answer: Hi dear, Eatables for less than 6 months old baby is not recommended coz baby's digestive is very very slow he/she cannot digest solids or semi solids. Breast milk should be the only source of nutrition for him till 6 months. Giving food to such a small baby can lead to various stomach problems like loose motions, fever, stomach pain or baby can become cranky. Even Dr doesn't recommend to give Eatables to such a small baby.  Wait for few more weeks mommy! 😇
