Hi better you start semi solid foods after 5n half months. But don't give evrything together. You can start with starch or Apple juice after 5n half month. You can give him water as it's too hot. And for increasing milk there s a tablet available in chemist

My child is totally on formula feed... According to my pead... After 4 months completed... You can start semi solids... Like mashed banana and other fruits... Then u can start rice khichdi in the 6 month... Give tour child stomach time ṭi understand the food.. So dont sṭart everything at a time... As for breastmilk... They say if it's less after the first 20 days then the chances that it would increase ( to the extend that onlybf will be sufficient) is difficult...

Hi it's better not to start semi solids now. Around 5 and a half should be ideal to start. I did the same. Wrt bf, even I had the same prob. Once it kinda stops, rarely you can initiate again
