Sheeba Vijesh

hi bhuvana, i can understand your concern... dont worry, till one year, the main purpose of weaning is to get baby acquainted with food. a baby may not adjust to solids easily... keep trying... you can try porridges like dry banana powder porridge... cerelac is packaged food, and best to give fresh homemade food...

hi bhuvana, can you please tag me when you are asking me, or i may not notice your question😊... any new feed you are introducing should be in the morning, as it will be easier to deal with stomach upsets. follow 3 day rule while introducing foods, for three days give same food, starting first day verryyy less, second day a little more, third day a little more. this way you can find out allergies and baby's stomach can also get used to it... initially give thin consistency to baby... just a little thicker than milk... mix 2 teaspoons in 200 ml water and stir on low flame... till it thickens... for a month, give only once a day...
