hi, my baby is 5 months old. I suffered from poor lactation and therefore started weaning my baby earlier. as per the doctors advise I started giving him nestum rice and isomil formula. He was completely ok with the diet. He has now started refusing feeds completely. He even refuses my feed. the same thing happened to him a month back and he was diagnosed with an indigestion. the same thing has started again . He's very cranky about feeds. please advise.

@Chaitali, Hi, there are many options available both in electric and manual form. Choose from some reputed brand. The milk expressed can be stored for 5-6 hours in fridge. It should be warmed indirectly over hot water.

@Sheetal, you can express your milk either manually or through pump. It can be given to your baby while you are away. To start with top feed or weaning foods at 4 months, take advice of your paediatrician.

@Soumya, Hi, your doctor sees your baby's growth and development in person. So accordingly they judge and advice on whether to start weaning or complementary foods before 6 months or not. So if advised you may start with weaning food. Nan pro 1 is formula milk. If you are not lactating enough, then take advice of your paediatrician.

Even my Dr has also suggested giving food to the baby, but I still hesitate to give her anything apart from breast milk. I also want to know if I can give my daughter Nan pro 1... Please help.

Good and informative article! Yes times have changed now. In cases of problem with mother's feed being sufficient for the baby, docs are recommending weaning foods as early as 4 months. I started off with banana and moong dal water at 4. 5 months for my daughter and she loved them both. She is 5. 5 months now and I plan to introduce her to something new from this article.

@Shailaja,@Prabhjot, Hi if you read the blog carefully, it is mentioned that you exclusively breastfeed the child for 6 months. However, sometimes when the child's need may not be met by breastmilk alone, this is specially true for iron and vitamin C needs. A mother's milk may provide upto 3 months only for iron & Vit C needs and then you need iron supplementation. So under the guidance of paediatrician (mentioned in the blog), you may start with green leafy vegetables (good source of iron and fruit juice (not citrus or sour). Fruit juice can be of apple or pomegranate too.
