Hi, today I introduced semi solid food of ragi cereal for my 5 months old baby. I want to know, how many times I give semi solid food per day.

Mohana Ragi is a complete NO for a 5 month old. not sure who advised this to you. It can do permanent damage to his digestive system as it is super heavy for child that age. you should ideally be breastfeeding only until completion of 6 months.

u can give her 2-3 times a day.... neha,in kerala we all give babies raggi cereals from 4-5 months.... the baby is found to poop multiple times but we never found any other abnormalities but juz that she poops bit by bit multiple times....the paed told that it was normal....

I am aware that people usually give ragi kanji to their child for weaning. ragi cereal can be given at a later stage but at 5 months is early.

Its too early for baby. If still u want to give plz go slowly start with 1 time a day by gradually increasing after seeing if there is any reaction of whether baby is able to digest or not.
