Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Mother's milk is best for babies but weaning should start from six month of age.After six months breast feeding alone does not provide with all the necessary nutrients.
Try purees of frits like mashed bananas,ripe cooked apple.puree of dal,gluten free baby cereals such as rice cereals mixed with milk.
Foods available in market like cerelac and farex are also good.
Take care
