what is the best way to introduce solid food for the first time to a 4 and a half months baby who is very interested in food. i have read about baby led weaning but didn't totally understand the procedure! i should't steam and mash the vegetable?

Hi Pamela !you could start with semi solids from 6 months onwards. It's time to continue to give your feed to your child, and you can get your child on semi solids as well as your feed once your baby is 6 months.

hi Pamela ! introduce semi solid diet once yr baby is 6 months old. till then you could exclusively breastfeed yr baby. once u begin with semi solid diet , u could begin with rice and lentil water, sahi water, home made cerelac, boiled and mashed pureed fruits and vegetables. introduce one dish at a time and try it for 3-4 days.
