Baby Food From 6 months

We can start semi solids for our little ones at six months or even earlier ,if your doctor advice you to do so.

1.Start with one food at a time .Give enough gap between introducing different food.Some food may cause allergy. so if your kid develop allergy ,consult with your Pediatrician and stop the food which cause allergy.

2.Ensure your baby is sitting upright position while eating.

3.Introduce new foods during the morning or early afternoon. .

4.Don't force your baby to have food.

5.When your baby is hungry offer her breast milk for few minutes and then give her solids.

6.Don't get upset if your baby is not ready to finish her meal. In the first day, baby will eat only 1/2 a table spoon.then gradually you can increase quantity.

Give your babies home made foods,which are healthy and nutritious.
First we will start with Rice kanji which I gave for my daughter as first food.
