hi everyone... I have a 5 month old baby and I ll start weaning him from next month. would want to know what was the first thing that ur little one had on the day u started weaning him or her..

Give water ( boiled and cooled ). Can give mashed softly cooked rice ( soak rice for an hour...and then pressure cook), mashed banana( short variety - here they call Elakki banana), mashed apple, daal Paani, water from boiled vegetables, mashed softly cooked carrot. Don't be in a hurry to give all at once. Whenever you introduce new food. give in the morning. And before introducing new one wait for 3 days. Initially baby may reject eating...it may spit, even vomit. Food may not digest. Everything is normal. Don't worry.
