I need to know How much quantity to feed baby 13 months old and time interval. I managed to stop breastfeeding her day n night.. gradually she is not demanding feed, but she is not sleeping long hours wakes every 1 HR at night , either I have to rock her or make sleep in lappy.... which disturbs sleep... not sure if she is hungry or habit of comfort.. Also she likes milk, is it advisable to put Bournvita in milk for 13 months old??.... please advice me on improving her sleep long hours specially at night, as I will be working.. soon... Thanks

keep the child well fed through the day, so that she sleeps well at night. From one year of age you should start with three meal pattern, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks. You can give porridge of suji, sagi, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Kheer of apple, rice etc. halwa of suji, atta, pumpkin, gajar, sweet potato etc. Khichri, upma, soft scrambled egg yolk, soups, mashed veggies, chapatti, rice,idli, dosa, uttapam,fruits etc. Give cereals like rice with dal/khichdi form, porridges, small bites of chapatti, pasta, upma, idli etc. Dals /legumes well cooked. Start with mashed and bring to regular consistency as the toddler starts chewing. Finger foods like cutlets, hard boiled eggs, small sandwiches, rolls, whole fruits. Small pieces of foods that can be handled with spoon or fork. Veg desserts like carrot /pumpkin/ghia halwa. Spinach/carrot burfi. You should wait till two years of age to start with any milk supplement like bournvita etc. Hope this helps.
