My mother is telling to start ragi, my friend is telling to start cerelac, i do not know what to give him, can i give him fruit juices, will he catch cold. What are the other foods i can give me. Is it required me to breast feed even after starting the other foods

my son turned 5-month old. I had started with hand made juice: one pomegranate in the monring and one apple in the evening. you can add him half spoon sugar in it. don't ever breasfeed him atleast for 30-45 minutes immediately after u give him juice. he's taking breastfeeding at every 1-5-2 hrs interval. i've not started any semisolids or any other tonic other than these two. my son's growth is very normal and he did not catch serious cold so far.

The breast milk should be gradually weaned off after starting the solid diet. The time taken depends on baby to baby, the best person is the mother who ca knows the way to wean off the milk

Interesting article, but it has not mentioned the list of finger foods that can be started. Can any one list me out the finger foods during weaning.
