yes we add onion in gravy n spices also but if you are used to having teekha food then reduce them. pick up piecies frm cooked vegetable instead of giving liquid part directly

A child whi is on breast feed will not like the outside milk. This is a commen problem so not to worry. You have to reduce your breast feed and encourage the child to take liquids and semisolids .Try curd ,buttermilk,flavoured milk like adding kesar to milk. Initially if child is not taking any milk product you can give vegetable soup,vegetable khichdi with some curd mixed in it. Try some smoothies like apple or banana shake

Dr Sunita .. I think ur tips are really good. .. by following these we can save our babies from harmful preservatives & chemicals used in packed baby foods. It's also helpful in nurturing the habit of eating vegetables, dals,chapattis at an early age & save the kids from shifting towards unhealthy Junk Food.

my daughter is eight months old she is also not accepting bottle milk. but I feel the food and breastfeeding is sufficient for her. she also likes to have what we eat. if there is too much masala in our food I prefer washing some pieces for her and then give it to her

Nice one, but my pediatrician suggested a strict no to sugar and salt till the baby turns one. so we can give vegetables cooked but not mashed.... I think there is no hurry for just 2 more months wait....
