Answer:
you need to limit his breast milk feeds too and alternate them with solids. Start with a spoon or so and gradually increase the amounts of feed according to his acceptance. Keep a gap of minimum 2 hours between his milk feed and solid feed, so that he is hungry and accepts e. Introduce only one food at a time, let him have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to his acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. You can give porridge of suji, sago, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana/mango and malai, milk/curd Boiled & mashed potato , boiled sweet potato with a little butter, Scrambled egg yolk with added milk, egg nog or egg added to soup Dal-roti/rice mashed, dalia dal khichdi. Add extra spoon of ghee/butter/oil to their dishes. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, Full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/dates& raisins(cooked & mashed) custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar kheer Click on the following link for more details https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/a-guide-to-infant-weight-gain/622 Hope it helps.
