have patience Shreya, try tomorrow again,intially baby will eat only few spoons at first week ,gradually it will.incraease ,keep offering new things ,moong dal soup, carrot ,peer,apple puree, later rice and brown rice... there is no perfect measure how much to give baby but when u start new food test it atleast for three days to check any allergies , and first day give one or two spoon and only one time next day two table spoons two times in a day, when u see baby is accepting increase the amount to three spoons morning and evening only two times. one spoon generally equalls to 15 ml and at the end of the third day or fourth day when your baby is settling with food you will see your feeding 90 ml in a day..like this you can increase the amount generally for 6 month old two feeds , around 90 ml or 100 ml per feed is enough , but this is not ideal calculation ,just for idea. read all articles of weaning in baby chakra u will get an idea, if your baby is willing to eat more you can give .. avoid salt and sugar.wait for atleast 6months to start food. ,hope if you have started early you have spoken to your doctor and check all symptoms of baby ready for weaning.. read this Weaning Food Recipe (4 to 6 months) Weaning Foods for Indian Mums: Khyati's Checklist.  happy weaning :)
