what all did u feed Ur baby from the beginning.. after rice and dal water.. what comes next

Harneet (clanpedia)

rice n dal water shud never be given as it replaces bm or formula. its void of any nutrients. instead u can give mashed veges and fruits.

Sonali Shivlani

Rice and dal water are low calorie items which will fill the baby up. At this age optimum calories are needed for the right development. It is best to continue with breast milk or formula till six months and then move to semi solids.
