Breast feed is complete food for your baby..up to 6 month to 1 year.(we can not compare breast milk with any other artificial food).
Why Complementary Feeding?
1. To give extra nutrient to the baby because the breast milk become inadequate, according to
his nutrient demand
2. To teach him to swallow solids. Start with dilute semisolid, and gradually increase the thickness every week, and slowly go on solid.
When to start weaning:
1. After 6 month, breast milk is definitely inadequate.
2. After 6 month intestinal amylase
levels are adequate .and gut mucosal integrity is satisfactory.
I would advice;
After completing 4 month you can start orange juice/ tomato soup according to tolerance.
