Well his expressions were normal.. infact when I stopped he asked for more .. so I guess he liked it .. will give apple for 3 days then change over to banana and then so on :) and as times passes by I will switch to veggies and soups Thank you so much for your inputs :)

Great Siddhartha. How were the expressions of the Lil one? The other fruits that can be tried are banana, Papaya, chikoo. You may give chikoo as milk shake or mixed with some cerelac or likes. I give mine soup, pureed veggies, Oats, dalhia, Khichdi. Now that he is 9montgs,he also eats paratha, sheera etc.

Once the baby is six months, it's necessary to start semi side to the kid. Please remember that the kid is growing and so are his needs, while your wife could continue breast feeding him, please do not stress her on solely feeding him all the time, it's a very stressful job for a woman. And also the nutrition from the breast milk alone are not sufficient. When my kid started with semi solids, he had mashed bananas and stewed and pureed apple. I continued that for about 2 weeks. But when I introduced one food I continued the same food for atleast 3 days to understand of any allergies my kid has. My kid is 9. 5 months now, I still breast feed him, but I also ensure atleast 4 meals for him. A mother has to be fit to be able to meet the growing needs of the kid. Please don't pressurize her. Take care of the nutrients of the kid. And do let me know the kind of faces your Lil one makes wh n introduced to anything new. I am sure you would love it. Happy parenting :-) You could connect with me for more recipes and foods which I give my kid and he surely enjoys them all.
