Food for 3-6 months baby
My baby has just turned 3 months old.I have been giving breastmilk and formula milk in parallel since beginning because he does not get full by my breastmilk. Please let me know what should be the food chart for the baby from now till he reaches 6 months. He has lot of gases for which I give carmicide occasionally. He pees over 8 times a day and does potty once every day. When should I start solids? When the baby can be given cow's milk? I ask this because anyways I am giving him top feed and my breastfeeding is not exclusive so, wanted to check if in this case solids should be started. Or should I continue breastmilk and formula in parallel. Please guide.

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Just know one thing, baby should not be given anything apart from mother's milk till the age of 6 months. Not even water unless otherwise specified.  Since you are having problem, you can give formulas. Do not start any solids or semi solids or cows milk etc. Consult a pediatrician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
