Amala, watch your child call it Alala (without pepper), just put ewedu.

You can start with custard and pap @ 6 months. Please, no sugar and only formula or breast milk. Then give him egg especially the yolk @ 7 months. The easiest soup for babies is okro with ugu (without ogbono) and small eba. U can also give rice, indomie, etc. Just avoid salt and honey for now. Introduce each new food individually and gradually in case he reacts (has allergies) to any of them. Leave like 4 days interval before any new meal. U can give oranges, tangerines, carrots, etc. Watch out for his reactions cos he might like some foods and not like others.

That is what i am doing with my baby now and he eats everything except bananas though in small quantities. Also, do not forget to continue breastfeeding or formula (with iron fortifications).

U cld also try some boiled irish potatoes march with butter or u add boiled titus fish, remove all bones & marsh potatoes or very soft yam.

U can give beans too ( d watery part).

U can break up d noodles while still in d pack completely then boil with fish.

Blend ur ewedu with locust bean & add ground crayfish with amala. I recommend amala over eba & co cos it kinda softer.

Pls don't try rice yet till abt 9mth in opinion cos they are still learning to swallow. Hope u find dis helpful.

Cheers***

He can try rice from 6months as long as the rice is very very soft.

Breastmilk is still the best in the first four months. Then you can start him on semi-solids like custard etc. afterwards.

OP breastmilk is best for at the very minimum 6 months. then maybe start with just ewedu. no okele.
