  Feeding: Introducing Indian food for 7 month old
Name: Megan'smommy
Date: 2002-02-21
I live in the US and have a 7 month old daughter. We started her on solids at 4 months. She has tried a variety of Gerber first & second foods (fruits & veg) & cereal . I would like to start her on Indian foods so that she gets a taste of our recipes. I need suggestions on what to begin with...Idli, daal, raagi, kichdi..??? any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks a bunch

Happy to know that you want to start Indian Food for your dear one which is really good for Baby.

There are a lot of Indian food you can start, but to begin with are following ingredients ;

1) Moong + Rice (1:1)
2) Chappati (wheat+soya bean) + Moong
(4:1:2)
3) Nachani Kheer
4) Rawa Kheer
5) Rice Kheer
6) Vegetable Soup (Cabbage, Cauliflower, Pharasbi, Tendli, Carrot, Beet, Palak, White Doodhi)
7) Chickoo, Pappaya, Grape, Dalimb, Carrot+Beet Juice, Mousambi, Orange, Coconut water, any Seasonal fruit.

First 1-5 items, can be given alternately whatever suits. Initially, it should be prepared with more liquid and less quantity but then later on see to it that it is pasty with more quantity. It should be boiled and then grind. 6 item - Same goes for Veg.Soup. Vegetables should be boiled properly and grind it in a mixer and filter it. Slowly increase the quantity. See to it that daily 2-3 vegetables are included in Veg.Soup. As baby grows, you can also directly give paste. 7 item - Daily one fruit juice can be given. See to it that Juice is given at afternoon to avoid cough. You can keep fruit in a clean cotton cloth and squeeze it and give it to baby.

In all above ingredients, you can add litte salt, sugar, jaggery or jeera powder for taste. But its optional.

For beginners, whatever you start (solid with more liquid, Juice, Veg. Soups), start with little (may be 2-3 spoon), wait for a day, see next day, how is their motion and then conclude. If you think that food given has not digested, stop for 4 days. Again try on 5th day with 2-3 spoon, and so on till Baby is adjusted to food. And then as per Baby's demand and requirement, you can increase they food quantity.

Your baby will really love to eat different food which has different taste. Then when all the things are OK, you can start giving Solid foods directly. Also, You can give few vegetables like ladies finger, pharasbi and other just to chew as teeth may be coming (see to it that she doesn't swallow it).

So, Best of Luck, set a time-table for your Baby which should also include Milk.

hi.it seems your baby has been exposed to a variety of foods already. my son is in his 7th month. although he is just starting out his first foods, i have given him daal water, and then pureed daal, adding a little ghee(or salted butter as an aunt suggested).(he can take in just about anything when he is hungry:)) one can also puree a bit of rice and daal together, or if your baby is onto more lumpier texture,you could just mash the mix like khichdi. but don't go on to urad daal (in any form) or channa daal. these are a bit'heavy' for the little tummy. but you could start out with the tuvar or moong daal,or rice and daal mix,khichdi, and then later move on. that is what i have done. hope this helps. good luck.

Feeding pattern
The feeding pattern of a newborn is as on demand. Breastfeeding is best choice for them. Exclusive breastfeeding should be done for 6 months. You should be nursing eight to 12 times per day during about the first month. In the beginning,you can nurse 10-15 minutes on each breast, then vary the time as necessary.When milk supply is established, it should be on demand. ... - Ranjana Solanki [View Message]
Motherly instincts
A motherly instinct helps a mother to know whether her baby is hungry or not. it is an inbuilt mechanism and is always correct. Listening to a baby' s cry, a mother can tell the reason for crying. When a baby is hungry, he will be sucking his fingers or make suckling sounds. ... - Samaira Reddy [View Message]
