  1. Hello Deepika and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Till 6 months of age baby should be given exclusive breastfeeding.It has sufficient water in it and all the essential nutrients. After 6 months of age baby should be given home based foods like well cooked mashed khichdi,dal rice wellcooked mashed .Start with 1 teaspoon and gradually increase the amount.If baby less than 6 months is on formula feeds baby may need extra water in form of sips of water .Continue with breast feeding.You may give baby fruit juices and cereal based foods suggested above by me.Sips of water may be given if baby is 6 months old.Hope I have answered all your queries.Take care and keep us posted.Best wishes!

  3. Hi and nice to hear back from you.At this age babies should be taking 6-8 ounces of solids but it varies in every child .Do not worry.Baby will take solids.Prefer home made foods like wekl cooked mashed khichdi compared to Cerelac .Try one cereal in one week.Take care and regards@
