I want to introduce solids to my child. Anyone pls suggest how to start. SHALL I GIVE WATER, COCONUT WATER and JUICES?

Rebecca Prakash

Juices, coconut water, dal pani, milk shakes, soups will all just fill baby's tummy and it got less nutrients. Till 1 year breast milk or formula is the main nutrition so all these juices will replace bm or fm( bm and FM are have more calories than these liquids so good for weight gain) you can start slowly with 1 meal and introduce another one next month. Offer kichadi with vegetables, steamed vegetables, dal rice, eggs, nachini /ragi milk porridge or ragi porridge, fruits like apple, papaya, pears, mangoes etc. Limit the water intake to 40 ml per day so that it won't fill the stomach, give all the textures don't limit only to purees. Start with purees but slowly do the transition to hand smashed this way by 8 or 9 months baby can be in normal family food without salt, sugar and chilli.
