Q:

My lo is 5month 10days old. Doctor said to start Farex or Cerelac. I have a doubt whether to start these or start with rice water or dal water.. When can I start food other than bm? What should I start with?



Mahalakshmi Murugan

is ur baby born on 9 th of July???..it is better to bm baby exclusively till 6 month

Pooja Bagdi

Before 6month no need of this wait now

sri nishu

yes Mahalakshmi. Now baby's weight is 7.6. Last week itself doctor suggested to Start Farex or cerelac

Kishu Sonkar

you can go with cerelac

Ranu Garg

start giving taste of different food to baby jst one spoon, it will develop his interest in food items, this will help you when baby will be 6 months old

Sonali Shivlani

Breast feeding till six months exclusively is recommended. However if baby is not gaining enough weight the doctor may recommend starting solids and this has to be seen on a case to case basis hence no generalisation. It is better to start with pureed solids and not rice and dal water as these are not optimum calories for your developing baby.
