Hi ladies. Should I start giving Dal water to my baby girl who is 5 months plus as I need to start working in 10 days and want her to get acquainted by then instead of depending upon formula milk which does not suit her.

Please suggest any other liquids which she can take as I cannot start giving her solids or semi solids as she is too young for that.

Akanksha, how about expressing breastmilk and storing it for feeding when you are at work?

hi dear
u can give your your baby dal water ,Boiled apple , Rice water ,
U can also give her vegetable stalk
Moong water n also nachni soup

thanks jasmeet...I will be storing some breastmilk but that won't suffice for her..

thanks devangi...will all this be fine for 5 months baby

Dal and rice water is not an adequate food for a baby. Till six months it's breast milk or formula and once baby is six months old you can start semi solids like fruits vegetables rice and pulses.
