General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi, please wait for her to be at least 5 months old. Then you can give her weaning food like Dal ka paani, Fruit juices, mashed banana, boiled and mashed potatoes, Thin kichdi, sooji ka kheer etc.By completion of nine months you can gradually start non veg food like boiled eggs.
Always remember to start with one food at a time to see whether you baby is allergic to it or not.
Good Luck
