    Re: solid food for baby

    Lakshmi,

    Mannal Ragi mix- you are talking about health mix. Then it is not advisable to give now. It is very hard to digest. This can be given after one year. Because by that time babies starts walking.

    Dont know what you are mentioned.I know health mix. Dont know whether they are having health mix or not. Sorry if i am wrong.

    Biscuits fill the stomach easily. Can try after eight months.

You can start with ragi...As Priyalokesh said you can prepare ragi yourself or you can buy Manna ragi mix.. its very good..just half tsp of mix in a 1 tumbler of water.. mix it until it cooks.. add formula..For most kids its not advisable to introduce cow's milk before 1 year.. because Cow's milk proteins is hard to digest for the babies so they get lactose intolerant/milk alergy.. so Before using cow's milk/pocket milk ask your doctor...In that case even ghee..

    as for the solid foods.. you can give 1/2 to 1 milk bikis/parle g biscuits mashed in the warm water, mashed potato, carrot, applesauce,mashed peas(all mashed.. boil the veggies/fruits and mash it in the mixie).. Ragi(with or without sugar/salt)...6 months.. start with cerlac rice.. easy to digest...first and go on...(first start in the morning or for lunch and introduce for dinner.. as it is heavy and make baby sleep for long time at night).. and you can alternate with manna health mix, with all the grains.. you can give ragi and this alternate days...you can give dalia/pottu kadalai(roast and ground) and prepare same as ragi mix.. by 8 months you can introduce rice...

    Re: solid food for baby

    yes priya, manna ragi mix.. just ragi..I started giving it to both my kids as early as 5 months, and they dint get any digestion problem and for that matter, they passed their stool regularly.. health mix is the mix of all the whole grains(like ragi, rice, pottukadalai,all nuts and so on), donot know the full ingredients.. that one you can give as early as 7/8 months when your baby has movement like crawling, walking, sitting.. etc...Biscuits are one of the first things I introduced for my kids, nothing much just 1/2 parle-g mashed in warm water and its a 3 or 4 pm snack for mine alternating with mashed veggies or fruits..and i started at 4 months...had no problem...

    Vasu, wait for one more month. From 4 months, you can start very dilute ragi kanji, and after 6 months, you can give the ragi in koozh (solid ) form.
