Please suggest some weaning foods?
Q: My daughter is 5 months 1week old and weighs 6.7 kg and her height is 63 cm. I breastfeed her and tried to give her the bottle but she refuses and throws out the milk. I would like you to give me a few suggestions as to what food can I start giving her and also it would be very kind of you if you could suggest me the best brand of milk powder for her. Is her weight and height normal?
A:Your daughter’s development is in the normal limits. Wait for three weeks. Feed her breastmilk exclusively in this period. Then start feeding her semi solids. Introduce one semi solid per week feed her the same food till she gets used to it. After a week, start with a second variety of semi solid like mashed apple/mashed banana are very good items to try out. There is no such best brand of milk powder. Any milk is good enough as long as it is pre boiled and cooled or prepared in preboiled and cooled water and served in sterilised vessel to your baby.
