What to feed:

How much : Depends on baby :

  • Every 2-3 hours during the day and every 3-4 hours during night.

What Not to Feed : Anything other than breastmilk or formula

Resist the temptation or pressure created by advice from people around you. You will receive many well-meaning advices regarding starting dal pani or fruit juices or even water. But, do not give in and do not start solids till baby is close to 6 months and then start solids only with the doctor’s recommendation.

 P.S. Breast milk is digested much better and far more quickly than formula. Hence, it can be seen that breast fed babies feed more frequently than formula fed babies.

      You may give yolk to her. If she takes it well, introduce egg white around 12 months of age.

      Hello Sravani,
      Your baby will soon start solids, which might help. Also, do not reduce the breastfeed or formula once he starts solids. Do discuss this with baby’s doctor. Babies usually double their birth weight in the first 6 months. If he has done that, then there might not be anything to worry.
