          Try giving simple fruit purees like banana and apple puree. Once she starts taking a teaspoon or so, then gradually increase the amount.

  5. Hello, Wanted to check if I can give Atta halwa for my little one, she is 7 1/2 months old. I tried it out once with applesauce. But It does constipate her a little bit. Should I postpone it to the next month.? I can see that it is one your weaning recipes for 6-9 month old babies. And I do like your site, amazing how you actually realize and understand that as mothers we would like to learn even basic recipes like dal paani. We know how to make it but then it is reassuring to have a second opinion(especially for a first time mom like me) and also learn quick/easy ways to prepare all this stuff. Thanks so much! You are my goto person for everything under the sun when it comes to my baby!

      Hi Uma, Thanks for your kind words!! Your encouraging words keep us motivated! I perhaps realize what first time mums need because I have gone through the same grind raising my daughter who is now 5 years old. 🙂
      Coming back to your question, try giving the halwa without the applesauce. Applesauce can constipate some babies. You may try giving it with a little banana or plain. If you still feel he is getting constipated, feel free to postpone. Every baby is different and you know your baby better than any guidelines. 🙂

  8. Hi Priya …my son is six months old. Have started solid food and have tried many recipes from your site. He doesn’t like khicdi or veggie soup without salt. Many days I kept trying mentioned food without salt but he didn’t eat and just to try it out added a pinch of salt to it and he had it at least. So is it okay if I continue with a pinch of salt?

    Thank you!

      Hi Sheena,

      I can understand your anxiety, but babies develop at different pace, so no point comparing with others. Good thing is your baby doesn’t have any underlying problem. So, give him some more time. Gradually thicken his food like when you give sufi banana kheer, mash 1 tsp banana instead of pureeing it and mix with remaining puree. It will not be as offensive as giving complete solid food. If he takes that then do the same with other foods like khichdi. You can also mash khichdi or puree it so that he becomes used to the savoury taste. Hope it helps! Feel free to write again and let us know how he is progressing.

      Hi Sapna, Yes you can!
      The 3 day rule simply means that you give baby enough time to adjust and ensure s/he is not allergic to any food you introduce.

      It is ok to not give or delay dal ka pani in case you feel it is causing gas. Give what know suits him. Wait for a couple of weeks and then start 3 meals a day.

    Hi priya,

    In the suji halwa recipe, you have asked to Add babys milk. What is babys milk. Are you reference to cows milk or formula milk? What else can be added instead of babys milk

    Reply
    • Priya Sachan

      Hi Neha, It simply means milk which baby is otherwise having. You can add formula milk.

  28. Hi Priya,

    Glad I was able to google and found about this site. My little one just completed her 6 months and I now got an idea of what is the good start for my angel. Will try out your weekly diet chart and I hope she would fit to it :). Thanks for putting your experience as helping lessons for all the new moms around.

  29. This article is something I was searching for! Being a new mom is a tough task, you don’t know what to and what not to feed your baby. My little one is a fussy eater and doesn’t like too much of solid foods.

    Hey Priya,

    My daugher 6.5 months and I gave her some mashed (watery) toor dal and mixed it to her cooked rice (powered) and am guessing it gave her gas in the night and she cried with that. When it is safe and advisable to give her other dals apart from toor? should we soak daal well before we cook it? or should we add any hing or jeera? please post your ideas?

      You can start now. Start the baby gradually to other foods and once baby is used to having purees, you can give overcooked rice with a little dal or make a soft khichdi and give.
