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:Urgent- baby food receipes
Hi dear this is very common with kids as they dont like any food except milk so please do not force your kid for any food and just give him milk at regular intervals and also try to mix some banana if possible as that will be very health for your kid.... - Anaida [View Message]
RE:Urgent- baby food receipes
Giving good food to your child is a must but then you should also see that the child is having the same food comfortably as you cannot force your kid to have those foods because he is very small now and can get allergic to food now, so please think twice in giving any food.... - Anita [View Message]
RE:Urgent- baby food receipes
Hi dear why do you want to start giving food at this age as your child is very young and you should only give milk to your kid, please think twice in giving such foods to your kids and then it should not harm your kid as he is too young for it.... - Anu [View Message]

hello satiksha,
your baby is just 11 months, so dont give him outside food, whatever you give him is right, and mother milk is important for baby dont start giving food on this earlier age to him.... - niraja [View Message]
RE:Urgent- baby food receipes
hello satiksha,
your baby is just 11 months, so dont give extra food to him, breastfeeding is good food and supplement of nutrition for baby, you should concentrate on your food, so indirectly baby got all things from milk.... - gayu [View Message]
