Question: My baby 7month and 9days old what type of food we can feed per day how many times
Answer: Till 1 year bm/fm is the main source of nutrition. At 6 months, baby needs one meal only. Start with fruits and veggies pureed or boiled & mashed, home made cerelac. For 7 months, 2 meals or 1 meal+ 1snack. Increment by 1 meal for every month. Gradually move on to family food minus salt , sugar and less spices by 7-8 months. Check #twspicelist for the list spices allowed for babies under 1 year. By 1 year, baby should be taking 3 meals + 1 or 2 snacks. No Cerelac and other processed foods. They are just loaded with sugar and not healthy. No dal water, soups, juices, rice water and other diluted drinks as they have very less nutrition. No salt, No Sugar/honey/palm sugar/jaggery till 1 yr. White sugar can be avoided as long as possible. Water should be limited to 40 ml max per day. It can be given after a meal. If the baby is breastfed on demand, water can be skipped. No Cow's/animal's milk as a drink as it has complex proteins difficult for babies to digest. However a small amount can be used in dishes like porridges. Offer a variety of tastes and texture so that baby gets used to it all. Let the baby decide the quantity. Do not force feed or distraction feed. Always bf/ff first and then offer solids after 30-45 mins in case of bf and 1-1.5hrs in case of ff..
