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.
