Answer:
The general rule to be followed here is till 6 months exclusive breastfeeding. Post 6 months introduce top feed in form of liquid diet that is dal ka paani along with the breastfeed. As the baby grows introduce semi-solid food like sooji ki kheer, daliya that has been roasted and steamed to the point where it can be easily mashed with the help of a spoon. Gradually introducing him to solid foods. The break up can be pre-morning : Milk Morning: breakfast Mid morning: one/half fruit Afternoon: Lunch post lunch sleep Mid afternoon: milk evening: one/half fruit night: dinner milk before sleeping.
