Hi Lopa, Health drinks should blot be given to babies as they are loaded with sugar and many other additives. Hence it is advised that too give wholesome fresh home made food to your baby. Include variety in the diet and try to give more of finger foods which babies at this age enjoy. 2018-08-29 15:20:51

Hi Jigyasa, Breast milk supply depends on baby's sucking. More the baby Health Drink, more is the milk formation. Also if baby is attached well to the breast then sucking is good, So to increase your milk supply make sure baby is latched well to your breast, baby is Sucking well,. Feeding baby more often, feeding from both the sides and feeding for longer time quill ensure good milk supply. In addition there are certain foods that can increase milk supply, lime, oats. carrots, spinach. nuts like almonds, Channa, flax seeds, gardencress seeds, saunf, fenugreek seeds, ginger and edible gum . Drink lifts of water and make sure to are taking at least 2...3 cups of milk in a day. Remain calm and relaxed and all shall be fine 2018-08-29 15:28:33

Hi Astha, At this age offer 3..4 small solid feeds, about 1/2 cup in each feed and 4..5 milk feeds. Offer small amounts. Include foods like infabt cereals, grains like ragi, atta,, rice, and also dairy like curd, paneer and cheese. You can also add cooked mashed dal ib different recipes.. Different type of Fruits and veggies can also be given. Just make sure, to limit intake of berries and some citrus foods as this may cause allergic reaction 2018-08-29 15:42:21

Hi Gowthami, Research has indicated that during the first month breast milk production gradually increases and it reaches peak by 2nd month. So gradually it will be increasing more. To increase production, feed baby more often, fed on both the sides and fired for longer time on each side. The more to will fed, more there milk will be formed. In addition include foods like, methi seeds, garden cresss seeds, ginger, saunf, edible gum, oats, Channa, carrots,spinach, as this will help in milk production. plus drink good amount of water and take atleast 2..3 cups of milk daily. Remain calm and happy as this will increase milk supply 2018-08-29 15:47:23

Hi Shubhanshi, at this age babies are introduced to new foods. So best is to give only 1-2 solid feeds and only 1-2 tablespoon in each feed. Offer 5-6 milk feeds (150-175ml per feed) Continue with breast milk, do not stop or reduce it. Start with single foods, like pureed apple or rice cereal and when baby is well adjusted to it, you can offer other foods like, pureed carrot, sweet potato and mashed banana. Since you are travelling, carry banana and Rice cereal . You can make these foods even while travelling. Do not offer juices for the first time while you are on the go. Instead breast milk is the best way to rehydrate the baby. 2018-08-29 15:51:45

Hi Jayaprabha, At 6 months babies are introduced to solids. Offer only 1..2 feeds of solid food in a day and that to 1..2tbsp in each feed. You can give aple puree, mashed banana, rice cereal. Start with single food and wait for few days to check baby's tolerance. If baby takes it well, then up can stay introducing another food continue with breast feeding 2018-08-29 15:55:51

Hi Madhulika, Baby refusing or crying is seen when baby is not latched well or if there is not enough milk supply which is also related to poor latching. So kindly check on this. Also if you have seen this recently then it could be sure to teething also. 2018-08-29 16:02:31

Hi Sonam, it takes 6 ..12months for babies to get trained in good sleep. To make sure that baby sleeps well at night, feed more often during the day so that by night his tummy is full. Also let him have 2.3 naps during the day. Lastly at night make a routine of changing his clothes, giving him sponge bath and then cuddling him to sleep. Slowly he will get trained 2018-08-29 16:05:29

Hi Yamuna, Breast milk production depends on demand and sucking. More the baby Health Drink, more is the milk formation.

In addition include foods like oats, Channa, gardencress seeds, tilseeds, edible gum, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds, saunf, ginger, carrots, spinach to your diet. Also drink good amount of water and take appeaser 2..3 cups of milk daily. Lastly remain calm and relaxed as this also helps in good milk supply 2018-08-29 15:38:00

Hi, As per WHO recommendation babies should be exclusively breast fed for 6 months which means no solid food, not even water, honey to be given. Breast milk itself will fulfil all baby's needs. Starting solids at an early age can result in allergic reaction, diarrhoea or some infection. Hence continue breast feeding 2018-08-29 16:07:49
