  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Infants should be offered only breastfeed atleast till the age of 6 months, and then you can start adding other food items gradually. But the first 6 months of breastfeed is very critical for baby's growth and strengthened immune system. Also see this chart to understand benefits of breastfeed for babies: http://medimetry.com/a/breastfeeding-benefits-baby/
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
