Starting Solids
Asked a question last year

My son completed 6 months.. i am planning to start solid for him, doctor said his weight is not that great, what food should I include in his diet so that he will have healthy weight gain? Also how much water should be given to baby when we start giving food? Does water need to be warm when we give it baby?

Where am I?

you can start off with thick porridge and purées (rice/dhal/ragi) and slowly move to well mashed foods .2-3meals per day along with frequent breast feeding .
