hi doctor , my baby is of 5 months 8 days and is only on breastfeed while my family elders say that as it is summers so give her little water too , should water be given to 5 months baby ? and while we eat she looks so interested in them and tries to grab them so elders also say that it means she wants to eat so weaning should be started , what do u say ?nutrition Corner
I hope you are well. I would suggest that you start giving semi-solids and water once your child turns 6 months old :) Breastmilk can hydrate your baby and even satisfy her hunger. When a child sees something different, she would grab it or try and taste it. It is natural. Please feed her food according to her time.
