Hi @Jiya Half boiled egg-yolk can be given. Avoid giving whole egg till 1 years of age, as egg white might give allergy.

Hi Urvashi, it is advised to exclusively breastfeed your child for 6 months and after that you can introduce semi solid foods. While breastfeeding ensure that you are taking care of your diet to produce enough breastmilk for baby as breastmilk has all the nutrients which are required for baby's growth and development.
