Hi Rashmita, thanks for writing into HCM.

Your baby girl is growing and her demands with regards to food keeps changing till she grows up. Care should be taken to ensure she starts getting resistant to all types of foods. Increase the intake of water and give manageable hot water. She must drink at least 5-6 cups of water throughout the day. Have you included fruits yet? If not, you can include fruits and vegetables between meals. Also, you can give her raisin that are soaked overnight as it helps during constipation. Water is very important and continue giving her a lot of water.

Good luck to the little one!!!
