Brief Answer:
Till 6 months only breastfeeding should be given

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Can understand your concerns.

Till 6 months of age only breastfeeding should be given because child gut is not mature enough to digest other foods.

After 6 month, complementary feeds should be started.

Initially, for 1 week start with milk based diet like glucose biscuit in milk, bread in milk.

After that gradually start meshed banana boiled apple, ceralac.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
