Q:

hello.. should cooked rice and veggies be given to baby only after the head is firm ??... doc suggested giving rice and dal water once he completes 4 months.. but his head is still not firm..



Solids can be started between four to six months depending on the readiness of the baby. The baby should be able to sit comfortably even if supported, baby weight should be on a plateau which indicates that breast milk may not be sufficient and finally baby should show an interest in the food.
