Breastfeeding is recommended until six months. You can start weaning after six months.
Exclusively on bf till baby completes 6..
Then go with vegetables and fruits puree. Don't give outside cerelac as it contains sugar alot..

Start after 6 months,till then continue bm or fm
FOR ALL MOMMIES STARTING SOLIDS FOR THEIR LOS
There are 4 criteria that HAVE to be met most importantly before starting solids.
1. Baby must have completed 180 days/6 Months
2. Baby must be able to sit unsupported for a few seconds
3. Baby must have lost tongue thrust.
4. Shows interest in food
Once baby meets ALL the criteria, only then you may start solids.
Please remember that for the baby’s first year, bm/fm is the main source of nutrition. Solids are not to be used to make the child “fatter/gain weight/fuller/sleep better”
This is because their digestive tracks are still not mature enough to process food completely so they may not be able to extract nutrition fully from solids. However, having said that, it doesn’t mean you should not feed them healthy options. This is the practice period which will set the pattern for their eating habits in the long run... so avoid force feeding, distraction feeding, giving junk food or masking tastes of things
No animal milk, salt, no sugar/jaggery/honey till the baby completes 1 year. Even post that if you can avoid, please do.
Before every solids meal, give bm/ff (about 20-30 mins before)
Continue to breastfeed as normal and don’t replace a feed session with solids.
When you introduce solids introduce everything individually first, be it fruit or vegetable or cereal.
6th month - 1 meals
7th Month-2 meals
8th Month- 3 meals
9th month- 3 meals and a snack if needed
10th Months- same; as above and give snacks as per demand.
If you are doing traditional weaning, then steam instead of boiling before pureeing
Start with breakfast and observe any reactions.
Offer variety. Don’t give the baby the same thing for several days
Don’t be alarmed if baby doesn’t eat more than a few grains or a bite in the initial days, it’s normal.
Follow the baby’s cues when it comes to quantity. If baby persistently refuses then don’t force.
Will add to this if I remember any more points
Some suggestions for starting weaning :-
Any other fruit or vegetable
You can also give upma or Ragi porridge
Post introducing everything on its own you can start doing combinations
Like peas and cauliflower
Apples and banana etc
Introduce without spice first so baby can taste everything in its natural form.
Don't fall for this packed food stuff. What's important is your baby health and not cubby Ness
Thank you everyone
