Reduce frequent milk. Give only three times à day then she will take solid items. These tonics are not going to help much.

Average weight for his age is 15-24 and hight 100-115 cms. Height is mostly determined by genetic factors unless the child is chronically ill or have endocrinal disorder. Force feeding doesn't help. Respect his choice for taking meals. We can not control children at the most can guide them.

My baby is 6 months old now! can I start giving her daily foods?

MD - Paediatrics

Frequency: after 6 months you need to start weaning foods apart from breastfeeding. For next one month: 1-2 times other foods (rest breast or formula feeding) from 7th month: 2-3 times other foods, increase to 4 from 8th month and 5 from 9th month. After that 6 times food, plus breastfeeding. As you can see you shouldn't stop breastfeeding, taper it down slowly. After one year day time food plus night breastfeeding. Type 1. You can start weaning foods like rice gruel or kheer or boiled apple and boiled vegetables or cereal, etc. Initially for one month give only once or twice a day. Rest should be breastfeeding and formula. 3. Exact quantity varies from baby to baby. Don't force feed every time. The moment he refuses to feed wait and try again after an hour or so. 4. Feed in calm and dark place to avoid distractions. 5. After 7 months gradually add home available foods (low salt low spice) like idli, khichdi, dal rice, etc in soft form (mashed with hands) 6. Add oil or ghee to each food item. 7. Avoid cow's milk till 1 year. Consistency almost liquid like till 7 months, semisolids from 8 months soft solids from 10 months egg yellow from 8 months, white from 1 year fruits and vegetables all types in plenty (at least two servings each per day) all vegetables can be boiled and given. Apple can be boiled while other fruits like banana papaya orange etc can be given without boiling.
