Mom of a 1 yr 6 m old girl

Q. Hi my baby was born premature.. born 2 months before. So should I start solid food after 6 months or 8 months?

A. Once the baby completes 6 months you can start with the solid food. you can start with Rice and dal water, Vegtable purees ,Boiled and mashed potato,sweet potato,carrot, Pureed fruits, porridges of rawa or ragi ,mashed banana ,chicoo..start with 1 spoon 1 time in a day and gradually increase.Always remember a 3 days rule before introducing new foods like when u start with something continue the same food for 3 days and see if the baby is comfortable with that food and then you can introduce a new one.i ll suggest you should ask baby's pediatrician if you have concerns regarding this
