Hi Aru,I am a nutritionist myself. Its ok to give dal pani and rice water than giving cereals which are loaded with preservatives. Your child needs to become accustomed to the taste of particular foods hence instead of giving rice water/dal initially you can start with the water. Also you can give fruit puree/vegetable puree,mashed potato and so on. And mostly importantly you would be surely breast feeding your baby along with the food you give. The calorie intake needs to increase as your child is growing but early on you cannot force your little one to eat purees. Start slowly and steadily ,lets not be too strict on our little ones :)

Hi Manisha,That is great. If your child has adjusted to it well then you can continue giving the same. Just make sure you introduce one food at a time to check for allergies :) Happy parenting!
