Q:

My baby is 8 and half months old,so I'm wondering if i can give her homemade yogurt? Will it be okay to do so? If yes, then should i feed it to her?



Sheeba Vijesh

yes you can... you can give it in day time... night times you should avoid...

Jyoti Rohra

bt every 1 says avoid cow or buffalo milk til 1 yr
so hw cn we make curd or yogurt fr babies who r below den a year

shweta shastry

hi Rhian.. the main.reason for discouraging cows or Buffalo milk is the fact that it does. not contain the required amount of.nutrients as present in breast milk or. formula milk . at this age one of the main source of nutrition is.milk n therefore emphasis is given.on formula.or breast feed. the quantity of yoghurt Is far lesser than mill consumption and in any case you will not be able to.provide the baby yoghurt from any other source. good quality cows milk shud be used.

only milk u have to avoid  till 1 year.. curd u can give but at th day time... ayurveda says eating white food items at night increases cough...

Sheeba Vijesh

Jyoti Rohra cows milk is not advisable because it contains more protein and other components which cannot be digested by baby, can cause intestinal bleeding and also can cause allergy. it is also deficient in iron. lactose is the main culprit in causing allergies, but when it becomes curd, lactose gets converted to lactic acid which is actually good for baby's digestive system. curd can prefereably be given after 8 months flavoured with mango, banana etc or plain....

thnx alot sheeba & shruti

Jyoti Rohra

shruti white food items increases cough
bt mostly ppl drinks milk at nite & den sleep
milk se bhi cough hoga

Shruti Giri

as far as my knowledge is concerned u shud have milk 3 hours before going to bed.. milk is probably digested in sun heat... however we know the benefits of having milk for good nights sleep it can cause digestive problems also... if u do not want to increase ur weight its better to avoid it at night time...
