Q:

I was giving ragi from 6 months to my baby then I continued till one more month, now after some break I am giving it again,what I notice us ragi can be seen in babys stool,that means it is not digested ? I want to continue with ragi as it is higjky nutritous and calcium n iron need at this age can be fulfilled by it...please advice  ,is this kind of stool common after giving ragi.? earlier when I was giving ragi same poop story but I noticed weight gain in my baby

ragi is constipating/binding aradhana so it will be a harder and perhaps darker stool. it is very nutritious. try to give wth palm jaggery and milk. Harneet Khurana #tagfwd

Aradhana Sharma..plz share the ragi recipe..i wanna start for my 6month son

at this age what ever u give,  ull see in the poop. since its high in iron,  the color will defintlty be darker

hi amreen,give ragi porridge,cook ragi powder, lastly when cooked mix in formula ,make porridge.dont cook formula add onkybat last ,your done.Amreen

great advice from the other moms 💞

Ragi has lots of nutritional factors, i wud personally suggest to gv it daily once til d child is 3 yrs old. try to make ragi powder at home itself. u must take care tat ragi needs lots of cookin time. while makin ragi add one tbsp of wheat powder along with it... as ragi is supposed to b coolin so as u nuterlize it. if you r breast feedin buy nan pro powder and add tat after ragi is cooked an wen ur goin to feed d baby instead of cows milk.. i do tat... Do not add sugar try addin jaggery or palm sugar
