wait till the baby is 6 months old.. start with kanji and banana mashed.. then light veggies soup like white or orange doodhi or zucchini.. dal ka pani is also good

but doc said to give such things..wat should I do??

Roopashree Siddireddy

no. wait till 6 months. change the doctor. Should know TT bag curd, sour shouldn't be given till 1 year. even honey. Diluted ( 1 milk :3 water) milk can be given after 9th month. Fully mashed rice, carrot, potato, apple, banana, water melon can be started with... but only after 6 months. babies digestive system will be very delicate. Enzymes won't be developed well yet. no salt and no sugar please.

Change the doc as well... Nowdays docs are very progressive and experimental.. My doc too said to give all these things at 5 months but i waited till 6 months or so

Some docs suggest feeding semi-solids starting from 4 and half months if mother feels she has less breast milk. However, exclusive breast feeding till 6 months has many long term term health benefits. Mother's milk has all the nutrients and calories that a baby needs till 6 months. Feeding anything else at this time will cause the baby to lose out on vital nutrition provided by breast milk. So please give your baby breast milk only till 6 months.

if baby is on top feed then you can give semisolid to 4-6 months baby.otherwise wait till 6 months if u give breast milk.
