Question: My baby is 5 months old.. Can I start giving food to him
Answer: Hi.. Dear breast feed or formula milk for complete six months, nothing else.. Not even water.. Normal milk can be given after an year. After completion of six months you can give boiled cereal water first (dal ka pani), then semi liquid porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentil and rice porridges), boiled and mashed potatoes, bananas (mashed or in the form of smoothie).. If the baby is able to digest these food sources, then introduce ragi, oats, dalia..DO NOT ADD SUGAR OR SALT, UNTIL YOUR BABY IS AN YEAR OLD.. Start giving with small bowls, gradually increase the quantity.. Serve in three different meals as per your convenience..
Question: My baby is 5 months 20 days old. Can I start giving him cow milk now?
Answer: Hello dear. Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants. Cows milk has to be given only after 1 year, and only after diluting.
Question: My baby is 5 months old. Should I start solid food to him
Answer: Hi dear,
Before 6 months of baby's age,nothing should be given except breastmilk and formula milk,not even water.as baby needs alot if nutrition to grow physically and mentally,over diluting or giving water could fill his stomach early and baby won't feed much.it would reduce his weight too.the amount of water in formula or breastmilk is sufficient to quench his thirst.do not give water separately.Älso refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
