I will be doing 'annaprashan' of my baby. He will turn 6 months soon. right now he is on exclusive breastfeeding. what should be the start up guide as I want him to accept both sweet as well as salty food. He sits with support so what should be the posture while feeding etc.

Feed in an upright position and baby can be propped up with back support. Do not give salt or sugar before one year of age. Natural sweet foods like fruits are fine. Generally for a Pooja like this the food introduced is mashed rice.
