Q:

My baby girl started with teething she is 4 month 20 days and her weight is 7.3 kg so now can i start giving her semi solid food and water as well she is on breastfeed only



Breast milk is the best food for babies under six months of age. Teething does not mean that you need to start solids. Baby will not bite while breastfeeding. Do meet a pediatric dentist to understand how to clean your babies mouth as the teeth have started coming. You may also need to limit night time breast feeds since even breast milk can cause tooth decay.
