My baby is 7 months old. She is having 100% formula milk since last 3 months. When she turned 6 months,we have started porridge of daal and rice which suits her very well. But recently,I tried boiled apple puree and ragi porridge which did not suit her. Apart from daal and rice,is there any other porridge which can be safe to start for her and those will be suitable to her?

At 6 months you can giverice 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 to 120-250 ml in a day. 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 Hope this helps
