Hi for 6 month baby one meal a day. 7 month one meal + a snack.8 month 2 meals+ snack. Remember that breastmilk or formula remains the primary source of nutrition till age one. Offer food 30-45 mins after breastfeeding so that breastmilk intake is; not reduced. Quantity is on the baby. Do not force feed or use distraction feeding. Somedays baby may take one bite, sometimes 5 somedays none. It is all normal

Wonderful explaination Preeti ji..thank u so much..
Yess il ne doing some distraction feeding that il avoid from now onwards
