hi Poornima, since you would be putting your child in daycare you can feed your own milk when you are leaving and when she is back from day care. Use formula milk when she is in day care. And by 6 months you may start with strained vegetable soup including green leafy vegetables (with milk), fresh fruit juice. At 6 months you can give ragi porridge, rice kheer, suji kheer or phirni etc. You can gradually start with mashed banana, boiled potatoes, dal water also. Boiled water can be given especially after each solid feed. Starting with a spoon or two you may gradually increase the amount. Keep the seasonings mild, keep the consistency flowing initially. You may give three solid feeds maximum, in a day. Click on the following link for details on introducing solids https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/baby-weaning-food-guide-4-to-7-months/567
