It is quite a challenging task to feed babies between 6 to 12 months of age. A diet solely containing breastmilk is not sufficient for them; solid food is also required. When my baby was of that age, we started solid food like khichadi, roti with desi ghee mashed in dal, boiled mashed aloo, daliya, and grated banana and apple. The main problem that most parents faces is how to feed babies, as they don’t eat as we do. To solve this problem, I have tried some methods that I would like to share here.
1. Go By the Mood of the Baby
Try to feed solid food to the baby when he is playing or in a good mood. It is very easy to feed babies when they are in a good mood because they are likely to willingly eat at that time. Play with the baby or use some tactic to divert his attention from food to something else. I have tried music channels or cartoons on TV to distract my child. Sometimes you can also do something that the baby likes. These are things which can be tried; after all, we have to feed the baby properly to ensure proper growth.
2. Feed Small Quantities at Regular Intervals
