Q: hello mommies...my daughter is 5 n hlf mnths old...what shouod i do to save her from dehydration...?can i strt giving her something to consume..?plz suggest

Hai Syed alina... Let baby complete 6 months. For baby every day counts in their development. So wait till she complete 6 months. Then start giving water, mashed banana, mashed apple, mashed softly cooked rice, daal Paani. And don't give cow/buffalo/goat milk, honey,salt and sugar till one year

my drand ma in law is pressurising me to give her salt and sugar in water to save her from dehydration...does this formula negatively effects babies...?

Roopashree Siddireddy

Old generation ppl have their own views. Those were good that times. Please don't worry or get tensed. They are also concerned about baby's health. Tell them gently and nicely that...now a days research have said to give water after 6 months. Tell them that your doctor have said so. Another 15 days and after that you can give her plain water. If asked say that..you have mixed salt or sugar. Sometimes telling lies may save relationship.
No formula milk will have an such negative effects. Some kids will have constipation. Feed as much formula milk ( that has been suggested by your paediatrician) or mother milk.

hi syeda, do check baby's pee count 6-7 times minimum a day, and feed baby bm or fm only till 6 months... do not give salt or sugar to baby till 1 year..

in addition,  
if it seems ur baby is satisfied with ur milk..  then no need to give any other food till she completes 6 months.  
Dress up ur baby with Very Soft Cotton Clothes and not more than 2 layers..  
avoid fully Direct Sunlight to the baby ..
U urself drink plenty of fluid.
