  • Good question momma! That’s exactly why I was searching these videos because I wasn’t sure how many times a day I could try solids and if I needed to breastfeed before or afterwards. Thanks for the video!

  • Hi doctor, my baby is 3 months 20 days old and I think she is so intersting in sitting up. But I don’t know is it the right time for me to teach her sit up or not? Please, can you tell me the signs that shows a baby is ready for sitting and how to teach her sit up from advoiding any injuries? I am so afraid if I make her spine injury. Thanks in advance.

  • I think its different for different babies. My son completely refused solids till 7 months. My daughter now 4 months n she is super into solid foods however still dont know how poop time will be becz my son despite rejecting solids he also had constipation every time he had abit. So fingers crossed ��

  • Omg thank you very much for this video it the most helpful one that I have on you tube for how to starts solids for a bay at 4 months.

  • Thank you so much for the info. I have started to feed my 4 month old and I have used stage 1 banana with some breast milk mixed until it’s kinda runny. Is this bad? Should I stop and do rice cereal? Also should I leave the banana by itself and not make it runny? Thanks again for the information.

  • I’m a first time mom and i was really very eager to start solid food. Now that i have started
    ……
    really have a hard time now.. HAHA…

  • This is rediculous my baby doesn’t walk till now so what your statement states?don’t post such statement which can lead a parent in stress or question

  • I am in Italy. Here it is winter. Is it ok to give spinachi, green peas? Because it cool the stomach. Babies might get sick.. like cough and cold. I need your idea please

  • Love this, Thanks Dr Tahir, I’m sick and tired of people saying BLW. The truth is, if baby is strong and has great neck control, they’re ready. Whats wrong with cereal or oatmeal? I love oatmeal and cereal still eat it to this day!

  • Dr.,
    My baby was born at 26th week of pregnancy and now he is five and half months old.Can I give him semi solid food along with Brest milk? Please give a reply….��

  • My son was ready for solids at 4-5 months, he would lick his lips and cry if we didn’t give him a taste of food here and there lol. He’s 13 months now and has a BIG appetite and eats EVERYTHING! Lol ��

  • baby ko kaise feed karana hai pls bathayea. 2 month feed kar rahi thi abb o 3 month ki hai o nahi pi rahi hai pls solution pls pls. i request u

  • Doctor, what about sterilization? Do the cups/spoons etc need to be sterilized? Do the fruit need to be steamed? If not, is there any point to maintain the sterilization of the milk bottles? Thank you

  • I really appreciate accessible professional medical videos online. I also have the utmost respect for the knowledge family practitioners have gained throughout their careers, and although an MD is not a nutritionist or dietitian, I believe the ones who have done further research are qualified to give nutritional advice. Saying that, I do have a question regarding rice cereal as a first food. Has it not been a while now that it is recommended to start with vegetables and fruits as opposed to rice cereal (especially considering the highly toxic arsenic in rice sources from the southern US)?
    Thank you for the reply.

    Update:
    Copy/paste from http://www.ewg.com

    Do not give infants rice cereal as their first solid food.
    Parents were once advised to start infants on fortified rice cereals, touted as non-allergenic and nutritive, but nutritional guidance is shifting. With some exceptions, parents are no longer encouraged to delay introducing other, potentially allergenic foods. Soft fruits, vegetables or even meats are great first sources of complementary nutrients for a breastor formula-fed baby. Try bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes and squash.
    Choose other grains.
    Powdered cereals are convenient and often used to thicken baby purees, but Consumer Reports found significant quantities of arsenic in all three brands of infant rice cereals tested. Look for non-rice whole grain or oat cereals, or make your own by pureeing grains in a food processor before or after cooking them.
    The American Academy of Pediatrics convened an Expert Work Group on Arsenic in Rice with a mandate to examine the safety of rice-based foods for infants and children. The Work Group recently concluded that oats are a preferred grain for infants and children who require thickened foods due to special medical needs like reflux (AAP 2014).

  • Please don’t start ur baby on rice cereal, start on baby oatmeal cereal.. to avoid constipation.. ( small amounts tsp a day) after 7 months try a lil rice but oatmeal is healthier.. Most Dr say start solids at 6mo also.. be cautious..

  • This was helpful! My son has his 4 month appointment tomorrow and we will see if his doctor says it’s ok for him to start solids. I’d like to do rice cereal for a few weeks and then move to another food. He was born at 37 weeks so I was worried that would be an issue but we will see and I’m so excited!

  • I fed my first babies solids between 3-5 months. All babies are different and ready at different times. Just like this guy say, they need to head good head control. I mixed a little rice cereal with baby foods.

  • My baby is 5 n half months.. today i gv him arhar and moong dal water… Once a day.. i hv started sooid from today.. dnt u think it would be very heay routine… Plzz give diet chart on weekly basis…. Its very very confusingggg

  • great video! Thank you. Not only was it very informative I also LOVE how finally there is a video with an involved father! Way to many times on youtube informational video’s and mum’s portray a picture as if there is hardly a father in the child’s life. This is exactly how I an my husband are preparing for our child! Men need to see their role as a father more:)

  • As per Ayurveda you can add very little amount of sendha salt/ rock salt, ghee and jaggery to baby food. Not refined salt or sugar. It is required to stimulate taste buds and agni for digestion. Recommend 8+ months

  • Hi there, firstly thanks a lot for like this helpful videos.
    Can you please tell me, after introduced one meal a day for 6 month baby, when can I give her like this food for 4 times a day. I mean how many days should I need to give 1 meal a day for six month baby. Please reply me.

  • This video is very contradictory! I wouldn’t follow this as the advice is confusing and adding salt to foods when you said not too!

  • u said no salt,no sugar, fruit juice and purees, but u r adding them in the video,,its confusing, please try to make a clear video so that its understandable..

  • Six months baby’s are not supposed to be given salt, sugar, toor dal… When we introduce food to baby for first time it is rice and moog dal. Later can introduce ragi.
    Vegetable purees, fruit purees, etc should be introduced from 7-8 th month. And most important thing for new mom’s…. Introduce a new variety of food after every 1 week so you will be able to identify if any reaction or digestion problem… And the consistency of the food should be a more liquid form later can be made thick once the baby starts like and enjoying the food.
