Yes, XXXXXXX .. Proceed with your query.
My daughter is 4 months old now. She is being exclusively breastfed at the moment. However, my wife isn't lactating very well, so my daughter remains hungry sometimes. Is it advisable to start semi solid food before 6 months?
We can start semi solid food after 4 months.
This process of weaning can start now and gradually continued by 6 months.
I suggest you to talk to her pediatrician and start of weaning food such as other milk products (top up milk), smashed rice, gruel, vegetables, etc.
Have you followed?
yes, we tried giving her top-feeds , but she doesn't like them so much. so had to stop them alltogether
so can we start with rice cerelac ?
There should not be any harm in giving cerelac / other similar brands.
thank you Dr XXXXXXX
Do you have any other query?
nope, none at the moment
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
