My 8 months old girl baby refusing to drink cows milk and not eating any solid foods and sleeping properly. What to do for these problems?

Hello, give your baby semisolid foods like dal-rice / khichdi with ghee, ragi porridge, suji kheer. Boiled mashed potato, ripe mashed banana, fruit shakes. Variety is the key. If she refuses to drink cow milk, its ok.

You should give your baby only breast milk or iron-fortified formula during the first 12 months of life, not cow's milk. Starting at age 6 months, you may add solid foods to your baby's diet. Cow milk is not suitable for human child and should not be given before 1years of life.
