Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for query. I understand your concern. I must appreciate that your baby is exclusively breast fed till now. Now complementary feed needs to be given. Give rice water,dal water ,mashed banana,boiled XXXXXXX Then you can add cereals as well. One thing is to be started at one time ans repeat same thing for atleast 5days before adding another one. Regarding milk,mothers milk can be expressed and stored till she is office and can be given with spoon and katori. It can be stored at room temperature for 8hours and in fridge for 24 hours. At one time 150to 200ml can be given. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help you further. Wishing your baby good health. God bless...
