Question: My girl baby she completed 4th month now which food should give to my baby

1 Answers
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!

How Much Should A 6-Month-Old Eat? Start with servings of 5-10ml or one teaspoon and increase the amounts gradually  The baby may eat just half a spoon initially. Do not force-feed her. Also, moving to solids is not an easy task as you need to be careful not to choke the baby or hurt her tummy with heavy foods. Take enough care not to harm the baby when you are feeding solids. Caution While Preparing Stage 1 Baby Food Do not give cow milk to babies under one year. Also avoid honey, since it may contain spores that cause botulism.Never give slices of fruit or other finger foods for 6-month-old because, it could cause choking.Introduce one fruit at a time and check for any allergic reactions. Follow a four-day-wait rule in between two new foods.Feed your baby in a calm and pleasant environment.Prepare baby food in steel or glass containers. Say no to plastic containers, even if they are food-grade.Offer water in a sterile glass or steel cup, but not in a sipper or feeding bottle.Avoid biscuits as they contain refined flour, preservatives, and added sugar.Wash your hands before feeding your little one.

Question: My baby girl completed 4th month now running 5th month which solid food should I give to my baby
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! 😇
