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:Baby not feeding properly
Try to divert the attention of your baby and play with them if they play with your teats. Keep on trying but don’t give up on breast feeding because its must for a child as it’s a source of nutrition for new borns.... - Neelam [View Message]
RE:5 month old not taking bottle
Diluted custard should not be given to a child till they are one year old. Its very good to do breast feeding to a child till atleast a year. Weight will increase as the child will crave to eat and cry when he/she is hungry.... - Seema [View Message]
RE:bottle feeding problem
HI Akshatha, i think your daughter is not comfortable with the bottle smell so try giving milk from you rather than using bottle. You can even stop bottle feeding as she is already 2 and half years now.... - MINU [View Message]

RE:Starting Amul Taaza in 5months
I don't think that you should start anything for your kid yet. let him turn 6 months old at least and then you can start with other milk or semi liquid food. But till then your should feed him only your milk.... - NN [View Message]
