hi sindhu pls read everything in our Weaning Foods section. Weaning foods simplified for all new mothers . all babies do that - try to keep a cloth nappy on :) Sheeba Vijesh sonam patel #tagfwd

you can start with boiled or steamed fruits or vegetables... 12 Dos And Don'ts Of Weaning is also useful... about the touching, he discovered a fun part of his, dont say it's dirty or anything, just keep the clothes on like asha chaudhry said... all boy babies do that...

Sonam patel

as suggested by asha chaudhry And Sheeba Vijesh  do read articles under weaning foods.. you will b getting many fun reciepes..
and babies do such.. just give him any toy or small piece of cloth.. he will b busy in that.. and gently put his hands away from the genital part.. slowly he will understand..

hi dear thats gud u can start wit semi solids ok like vegetables n fruit purees , u can cook dal rice veggies n smash n feed ur baby u can also start wit the fruits like papaya, banana n ofcourse mango season little u can give n keep that area clean often as it is summer diapers may also irritate them try to use nappy pads
