Q. #AskTheExpert My daughter is into her 6th month. Pls help me with food to be given to her. Right now she is on her mother's milk 2-3 times a day and lactogen milk 4-5 times.

PreranaMom of a 4 yr 8 m old girl3 months ago
A. Introduce new foods slowly so that any allergic reaction or intolerance to food can be detected Start 1 tablespoon one time a day on the first day. Then slowly increase intake Always check for any allergy or tummy upset, it is a sign that your little one is not tolerating the food, stop it immediately, give a day’s time before introducing another new food. You can reintroduce the same food after 4 to 6 weeks. recommended timings for giving the solid food will be around 11 am to 12 pm in mornings and 4 to 6 pm in the evenings. Do not force to feed if the baby does not like the food, try another variety.. make sure you avoid,any kind of processed food like ferex biscuits . you could start with over ripen banana,malted ragi cooked in water, over cooked mashed rice and potatoes could be given ..also home made cow's milk curds cud b given to the bby. make sure you add 1/4th of a tsp of cows ghee with any cereal preparation. introduce one new food at a time..and the other food after a weeks time. consistency of the food you offer should be in smooth purées or mashed foods without any lumps. Between 7 and 9 months, give him mushy food with soft lumps or soft finger foods. From 9 months to age 1, you can feed him minced and chopped dishes, as well as hard finger foods.
