Hello

YOU SHOULD FEED YOUR BABY AT LEAST FOR ONE AND A HALF YEAR.it will be good to feed the baby till two years.

Till six months feed him every two hours.then along with breast feeding start with milk, fruit juice, clear veg. soup for few days then to semiliquid for 1-2 monthsthen to semi solid soft diet.for a month.

Take care
