Hi my baby will turn 6 months by end of this month. Can u help how to start the semi solid food for him and juice n all. He is completely on breast milk as of now. Share some recipes n methods.

hi dear, juices are not advised, neither dal ka pani as they are empty calories.. you can start with individual fruits and veggies(do not initially mix items), steam/boil and mash and give. here are some helpful articles Weaning Foods for Indian Mums: Khyati's Checklist, A Beginner’s Guide to Weaning foods, Weaning Food Recipe (4 to 6 months).... do explore many more in Weaning Foods

give mashed banana, chickoo, papaya, mashed khichdi, Apple puree

I would suggest you to start with fruit purees. Some of the most safe fruits are banana, apple, chickoo. Follow an 'introduce-one-thing-for-5-days' rule to see if your baby isn't allergic to anything. Slowly start mixing fruits, introduce carrots, potatoes etc, rice and moong daal by the end of sixth month..u can also mix formula or bm with banana etc and give..
