Feeding:can i give banana when baby has cold?
2004-10-27
Name: monika
dear girls,
My baby is 5 months old. We are in Calcutta.I started giving him mashed banana, boiled apple & rice cereal from 4 month onwards. Now he is suffering from cold . Shud i stop giving him banana?? is it true that banana increases congestion??? is it true that banana shud not be given after dark??
Also my baby drinks abt 1 oz milk after every solid feed. I have never given him water & he has never been constipated, though his stools are quite hard ever since he started solids. Shud i substitute the milk he takes after solid feed with water??
Pls advise
Monika

Hi Monika,
My ped says that fruits can be given during cold. My daughter got cold n when I checked my ped whether I can give grapes, she said YES. I live in the US but in India they say not to give.Here they even say water is not must for 5 m old baby. If taken its fine, otherwise dont force.Milk has enough water in it.My daugter took watre when she was 9m old ...that too a few sips till today.
Give milk as much as possible as ur one is tiny.

RE:Doesn´ t eat properly
Some children take time to adopt to solid meals. The situation is pretty normal as kids might not like the food taste. Although she will start eating in few months. Just keep trying.... - Jaiesh [View Message]
RE:Doesn´ t eat properly
Taste the food before you serve to her. It might be too hot or too cold. Also take some help of doctors for increasing her appetite. Don’t make her dependent on milk. Taste the food please. Thanks... - Urmila SIngh [View Message]

Consult a pediatrician. Some tonic or syrup will help in increasing her food liking. In early years or parents would try to serve us cooked thin daal servings. It is very healthy. Thank you and tulika hope this might help you... - Swetha [View Message]

Is your child healthy or not? If yes then don’t worry, things will tend to get normal. If not then I would suggest to consult a doctor. Proper nutrition is very important in early years for healthy development of brain and body.... - Pooja [View Message]
RE:Doesn´ t eat properly
Involve you kid in some fun activities as when she plays properly she will also get hungry and at such times you can provide her solid meals. Try to avoid powdered milk as you never know with what they are adulterated.... - Baccha yadav [View Message]

Hello
Isn't powdered milk for such young kid harmful? i think you should be more careful on that part. Instead breast feed her. She is just one and so it is okay to breastfeed her.... - Vimla [View Message]
