WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STARTING SOLIDS FOR YOUR BABY.

WHO recommends 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding. It means you don’t need to offer anything except breastmilk for first 6 months. Even water is not required as breastmilk has 80% water content in it. Unfortunately, due to any medical/personal conditions, if you want to wean after 4 months of the baby, please do converse with your Pediatrician and if agreed, then you can start wit plain rice and dal water.

Once you decide to introduce solids to your baby, start with the starchy rice water remained after boiling rice. Also, moong dal water can be given. Continue this for atleast a week before beginning balvvardhak food.
