Baby 360 Degrees plz advise

Arpita trying giving something else, keep experimenting. also please follow  3 days rule. whatever new food you give the baby, give it for 3 days before deciding whether he likes it or not..

also weight gain after 5-6 months is less due to an increase in activities

thnks tamanna i will try this

at 8 months, milk is the primary source of nutrition. solids are only intro to texture color and taste. from 6 months onwards,  weight gain slows down. as a thumb rule baby triples birth weight by 12 months.

Some babies have an instinct to eat more formed and solid foods. Try allowing the baby to self feed rather than feed him. Yes keep trying small portions but don't force feed as that becomes the main reason for vomiting.

try mashed foods , in high chair make baby seat and give offer for self feeding, veggi3s such as carrot , potato, cereals mashed rice ...softly mashed can be given at this age ,so that they develop interest.
