Q:

hello everyone
my lil angle has completed 6.5 months what should I give her apart from breastfeed.
elders in the family suggest not to introduce grains till she starts walking or else she would have a bigger tummy is it so ?



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

u can start grains after 8months...and bigger tummy ll nt come...
start with pureed foods...
rice cereal is the best one...

Pearl Garg

daal ka pani, rice ka pani, boiled & peeled Apple...mashed banana...

Hi Shweta! I suggest you to start with semi liquids, pureed or mashed vegetables or fruits. Take care you introduce one food at a time so that you have time to look for allergies or obvious indigestion. All the best😊

it depends on ur baby's response. for my baby I started smashed apple, dal, potato, health mix by 6 months. and idly other fruits by 7months. finely smashed rice by 8 months. and my baby had it well.

start with mashed fruits... Kichdi... soup...
Then gradually move to semi solids... I mean not just puree... mash a idli completely  and try feeding..
