Hi Pradip, the food we introduce at six months is complementary food and not substitute food. This is because no food can replace the goodness and benefits of mother's milk. 2018-10-15 11:01:43

So besides mother's milk, you can start with fruit juices of apple, pomegranate, grapes etc. These should be fresh and not sour. 2018-10-15 11:02:34

Whatever has been suggested, is suitable for a six months old. The mother can also express her milk and it can be fed to the baby, while she is away. 2018-10-15 11:11:11

Complementary foods and mother's feed can be given alternatively to the baby. 2018-10-15 11:11:55

However if mother's milk is not sufficient, you may introduce a top feed ( it could be formula milk) to the baby. 2018-10-15 11:13:18

These may help the child in sleeping better. You can also give little ginger juice with organic honey. 2018-10-15 11:17:00

Other herbs which are beneficial are basil leaves (tulsi), licorice (mulethi), black pepper powder (kali mirch) etc. These can be boiled in water and can be given with little jaggery added to it. 2018-10-15 11:19:03

Hi Shilpi, a high calorie and protein diet helps in weight gain. Ghee being high in calories and essential fats and vitamins can be given to the child. 2018-10-15 11:33:12

Increase intake of dals/legumes, eggs (hard boiled cut into small bite sized pieces or omlette etc.) poultry/fish (curry, snacks, cutlets, tikka, in rice or in soup). Use whole milk and its products like curd, paneer, cheese, buttermilk etc. You may give these as fruit shakes/ fruit lassi. Cheese or paneer can be cut into small bite sized cubes, so that they can use their fingers to eat these. Alternatively paneer/cheese can be added to their roti/sandwich/dosa/uttapam etc. 2018-10-15 11:36:37
