Patient Review Highlights
Hi Dr Nirav, would like to differ with you on some points... 1. Breast feeding is 2 yrs and beyond and not till 2 yrs as also advocated by Govt of India, and americans say 5 yrs beyond as there they don't have culture of play schools etc and formal education starts at age 5 + 2. Rice water and daal water are not be given... these are myths and wrong advices from our 2 generations seniors as at that time india was a poor country and people dint have food at home so they would put extra water in rice and daal , which was given to the infant and the family used to consume the solid dal and rice. Today even the poorest of the family in cities have enough food for their infant. 3. Juices are also not recommended at any time In fact the rule followed should be any thing which is more thicker and more nutritious than milk. Please revert if I am wrong
