firstly grishma the baby is yours. so u need to be firm in stopping ur mother in law from doing this. because it's essential that u give only breastmilk for the first six months. usually babies show signs of intolerance towards any food by various types. one being poop. what is the texture colour of the poop. u should consult a doctor please. and pls pls only breastfeed first six months if that doesn't seem to be a enough consult with ur doctor and start formula milk. but not cerelac

yup...sure thanks a lot sheetal.. but poop color is yellow..

pls dont give cerelac...u can give moong dal water but only 50ml to 60ml once in day...and start with little...but pls focus on breast milk or formula milk because milk is best for baby till 6 months

As the doctor has indicated not to give anything but breast milk we can understand that the baby is growing well. Growth is measured in weight and height. keeping that in mind your baby's height should be normal. You have to make a comparison with the birth weight and height and it is best to check against the growth charts provided by WHO. Do not give cerelac before six months and even after six months it is best as a travel food and at home serve fresh foods. Moong dal water is also strictly NOT to be given as it will compromise the calories. Any compromise on calories will affect the brain development. Please discuss this with your husband and ask him to help with your mother in law.
