starting out food
Created by Updated on Feb 20, 2017
Please suggest on giving liquid food for my daughter apart from mother's milk. 5th month started recently and I'm not interested in introducing new food for her so early. since my mom is forcing me, I'm thinking to give some food. I would like to get advice on it. Shud I start giving or can I wait till 6 months gets completed. ..?

hi.. if you are at home and not rushing back to work.. I suggest you wait till your baby completes 6 months.. and feed the baby with your nutritious breast milk. in my case I had to join back work when my daughter was 5. 5 months old and I started formula for her and slowly moved to moong dal water, fruit pulp of papaya, banana and boiled apple pureed.. now she is 8. 5 months old and happily eating khichdi and boiled veggies.. I still feed her Brest milk though. do what you think is best for the baby.. even I was forced to feed food from the time she was 4 months old.. but I didn't until i was left with minimal options
