Is it safe to give porridge (in diluted form) to a three months old baby? Elders are asking to start with this in small quantity. Please advise

yah... thy r right... but you can start after 3 months... I m giving my baby after completion of three months

but increase the consistency and quantity gradually

No baby should only get exclusive breast milk or formula for first six months. Till then the gut is not ready and this can increase the chances of allergies and infections.
