At this age you have to first check if your baby is ready for solids. Also at this age baby is introduced to food and milk will continue to be the main food for your baby. Offer 5-6 milk feeds and 1-2 solid feeds. Each solid feed should be just 1-2 spoons made of cooked poured foods. Start with rice cereal, Apple puree and then gradually move to cooked pureed carrot, sweet potato, mashed banana and then gradually to mash rice and dal. Start with one food at a time,wait for baby's tolerance and then gradually introduce the next food.
