What would be the best semisolid food for my 4 months old baby?
Q: My three and a half months old baby is breastfed along with about an ounce of top feed (Farex 1 infant formula) at night, since he seems to want more feed at night. I am also taking Lactare capsules thrice a day. I would like to start him on semi solid foods from 4 months onwards. What would be the best food to start - home made or ready made cereal?
A:In exclusively breast fed babies semisolid supplementation is recommended at 6 months of age. Since he is taking a top feed, you may replace this with a semisolid, preferably a homemade cereal like suzi or daliya. You could also start with cereal like cerelac.
