i am working woman. Right now i am on maternity leave. My baby is 4 months. I will be joining office on april 1. I want to ask when should i start feeding my baby...on completion of 5 months or on completion of 6 months.

I had joined when my baby was 6.5 months and I had started semi solids at 5.5 months. u need to take go ahead from ur doctor for doing it. it depend s upon ur baby's weight is there any other issues or not. doctor will examine these things and give u go ahead .

Ideal is six months if weight gain is on track. However you can consider doing a taster diet from about five months. Just small tastes maybe one or two spoons of foods which are prescribed in your weaning plan either by the pediatrician or a Nutrition counselor. I would also suggest getting accustomed to expressing and storing breast milk when the baby is five months old as then this can be fed along with some solids when you are at work. Breast milk can be safely stored in the freezer for three months at a temperature of -16 degrees.

thnk u mam....but can u plz tell me how to store breast milk??
