Ready for an exciting week of new adventures and memories with your baby? We certainly are!
We know you can’t wait to introduce your baby to solid foods. But hold your horses, here’s some food for thought (pun intended!). Your baby may just not be ready for solids.
Your 5-month-old baby's digestive system is still developing! Rather than giving them "dal ka paani" or "chawal ka paani" (which is often advised) at such a young age, it's best to stick to breast milk or formula as the primary source of nutrition.
Your baby's little body can only assimilate these at the moment, and anything else may displace their nutritional intake, causing weight stagnation at 5 months.
So what kind of skills do babies need in order to start enjoying solid foods?
