u r giving them more than what ur baby needs. at 6 months ur baby needs only ONE meal in a day rest is ur feed or ff. 80% nutition comes from feed.

if no pls give with spoon and bowl

i am giving him water...he has  completed his six months...and he doesnt eat fully...just has only few spoons...thats why gave him two feeds..also he is not taking breast feed efficiently ..become more palyful

Harneet (clanpedia)

baby needs only 3 spoons of food. thats how much his tummy is. pls dont over feed ur baby. babies become cranky if overfed and fussy pls their tummies cant handle so much food. they need only one meal which wud be max 5-6 spoons that is all. the nutrition will come from milk.

hi Divya, Harneet has explained well ,only one meal is enough now and continue same meal for few days for the tummy to  get adjusted to it,feed water  regularly and breastfeed.they will be playful at this age and get distracted easily so sit in a particular place n feed so they don't find new things to wander.after baby completes 8 months u can start feeding 2 meals.give enough water and home made preparations  .can give banana mashed well so that baby is not constipated.
if u find blood again n poop consult with doctor
