I started feeding my baby when she was 4 weeks and 2 months. She was a little underweight and the doctor advised me to feed her semi solids.
I started off with Nestle Cerelac Rice and Milk. Read review here.
Following the advice of many of my friends I added sugar to the cereal but she did not like it.
She liked the taste of plain Cerelac. We started off feeding her the Cerelac made into a runny liquid consistency. Later on we made it like a paste. Right now, I’m feeding her in the consistency of dosa or pancake batter.
My Pediatrician advised me to give her toor dal water with a little jeera (cumin seeds) and salt cooked in a pressure cooker. She liked the taste.
Another food advice was Ragi porridge. I have the mix ready, it is called Silverspoon ragi powder. Review here.
She advised me to feed her fruits in the morning. All fruits should be steamed or boiled.
I started off with apple puree which she did not like much. Im still trying to make her like it.
I make all my purees using Munchkin food grinder. Review here.
I started off with carrots and avocado purees. I should still start off with vegetable soups.
