Weaning Basics: How And When To Get Started

Yes it's okay if she has adjusted to the diet. Let her complete six months and you can introduce mashed fruits.; Apple is the first thing to begin with.; Make purees of veggies or fruits and feed. make sure you start water in sips between these meals once she completes 6 months too.; Any new item to be introduced must be done in bits and over a three day gap. Don't over do.
After six months try addingbharted and mashed veggies to the khichdi as well as introduce watery sooji. Don't introduce external milk till baby is a year old.

Weaning In the Initial Months

Actually she had diarrhoea since many days... diarrhoea of breastfed kids do not subside early because of high lactase content; in it.she could not gain weight in that period to over come that she hd to start with food early.

I would say three times a day and the same dal rice is not a good idea. You should focus on varieties and also start slow... In 6th month one or two meal is enough. Better start with steamed and mashed veggies and fruits once a day and dal rice once. And slowly increase.

Hey I differ here, my bub is 5 months and I'm all prepared for her weaning off. WHO recommends breast milk/fm should be the main source of nutrition till 1 year, 3 days same food is obsolete now, if you are serving anything new give in the first half of the day and look for allergy. 1 meal per month is recommended.

Rebecca Prakash; have you started solids ? My baby is also 5 months 10 days old and I am just waiting for the 6th month to finish and start with solids 😁 excited

Meeta Rajani; will start from 6th July and I'm going to follow Traditional weaning and Baby led weaning.

My doctor told me start wit dal water, rice water and veggies water in 5 month.. and from 6 month ragi malt..
