Feeding tips for baby between 6-12 months of age try variety of foods as by this age increasing the variety the appetite/palatability improves. Add ghee generously if tolerated to increase the calorie value of diet. In compare to protein and carbohydrate calorie value of fat is thrice. Give at least one katori serving at a time of- mashed roti/bread/biscuit mixed in sweetened undiluted milk or mashed roti/rice/bread/dosa mixed with thick dal with added ghee/oil or khichadi with added ghee. Add cooked vegetables in the servings. You can also give dalia/suji ka halwa/kheer prepared in milk or any cereal porridge cooked in milk. You can give mashed boiled potato also. Give banana, papaya, cheeko, mango to meet the vitamin's requirement. Give these servings 3 times per day. Feed the baby in your lap with your hands. Don't force. If needed give small amount and increase the frequency of feeds.

You simply refuse to breast feed and when the child feels hungry you feed from a cup with spoon or a sipper but do not use nipple and bottle. You can pit a bana aid on nipple and she will refuse to suck seeing the difference from normal nipple

If the baby is exclusively breastfed it can not be diarrhoea. Breastfed babies usually pass frequent semisolid stools following feeding.

If your baby is 6months old you should introduce semisolid diet like khichdi, dal rice, mashed potato, mashed fruits, thick milkshakes, soups, fresh fruit juices, vegetable pulao everything in semisolid consistency. Do not force feed your child. Continue mother's milk. Mother has to take nutritious diet, milk and milk products, paneer, sprouts, fruits, balanced diet, all leafy vegetables. Have food and feed your child with a very relaxed mind. See your child growing happily.

Baby Bottle Caries In Bottle Fed Children

PGDHHM, BDS

Ask Free Question
What is baby bottle tooth caries?

Baby bottle tooth decay is caused by the frequent and long-term exposure of a child's teeth to liquids containing sugars. Among these liquids are milk, formula, fruit juice, sodas and other sweetened drinks.
The condition is associated with breastfed and bottle fed infants who have prolonged feeding habits or with children whose pacifiers are frequently dipped in honey, sugar or syrup. The sweet fluids left in the mouth while the infant is sleeping increase the chances of cavities.

Why should I be worried about baby bottle tooth decay?

Giving an infant a sugary drink at nap or nighttime is harmful because, during sleep, the flow of saliva decreases, allowing the sugary liquids to linger on the child's teeth for an extended period of time. If left untreated, decay can result, which can cause pain and infection. Severely decayed teeth may need to be extracted. If teeth are infected or lost too early due to baby bottle tooth decay, your child may develop poor eating habits, speech problems, crooked teeth and damaged adult teeth.

How can I prevent baby bottle tooth decay?

1. Never allow a child to fall asleep with a bottle containing milk, formula, juice or other sweetened liquids.
2. Clean and massage the baby's gums to help establish healthy teeth with a moistened gauze square or washcloth.
3. Brushing should begin upon eruption of the first baby tooth. When brushing a child's teeth, use a soft toothbrush and water.
4. Parents should first bring their child to the dentist when the child is between 6 and 12 months old for a checkup.
5. Decrease consumption of sugar, especially between meals.
6. Children should be weaned from the bottle as soon as they can drink from a cup, usually by their first birthday.

No branded milk is superior to breast milk. But in case you cannot breastfeed the baby due to any genuine reason you can use nan pro 1.

Worms is generally a family problem though all will not show symptoms. So all family members should be treated at the same time with bandy. Also look for any other source for repeated infection. Keep nails cut properly. Eat only home food as it's more hygienic that any outside food. Wash hands properly before eating. See area around motion area for redness. Treat constipation if any.

We don't encourage the use of sipping bottle for children because it may cause diarrhoea & abnormal dentition. You can use cup & spoon for feeding.

My daughter is 2 year old, she can't able to take food like rice and fruits. Takes milk and liquids only. We are using so many appetizers but no use. Please suggest me your valuable prescription.
