M ay b i m weong but shd weaning b done or feeding shd b continued? If yes?? How to do weaning in this case
Answer: Ideally weaning for any normal child without any complications should start at 6 months. Introducing new elements/ ingredients to the diet along with breast milk..For example if you are started with cow milk ; add 1:3 ; one part of cow milk along with 3 part of expressed breast milk. First give only small quantities to check for baby's tolerance level ( some babies are glucose intolerant, this helps to find out ). Check for baby's response to this feed whether baby is crying or any other signs of uneasiness shown by the baby. Then other things which can be given are fruit and vegetables juices , rice water ( kanji), First liquid then slowly and steadily shift to semi solid and then solid. ( normal diet) By 2 years your baby's weaning should have been completed. It's never too late. My first pregnancy was preterm twins with low birth weight but I started weaning them by 4 months itself by the end of 6 months they were so healthy and plump that I would find it hard to lift both of them for more than 5 minutes. Every baby is different and responds differently so don't worry just be positive.
