Good evening ma'am, you can start by gradually introducing pap and other family foods including semi- solids. Fruits and vegetables as he can tolerate. Be sure to mash the food to ease swallowing and digestion and to avoid choking.
God bless you for helping mothers. Pls is it proper for a child of 6 months to weigh 14 kg? Birth weight is 4.1kg. Thanks
No it is not. The child weight is supposed to be double birth weight by 6months on the average. In this case the child needs to be examined by a paediatrician.

Yes, he can still take it. Just that he may be at risk of vitamin A deficiency but if he is eating food rich in vitamin A like meat, liver, carrots e.t.c he will be fine. Most of our flour, sugar, vegetable oils are also fortified with vitamin A so if he is taking that, he will be fine. Kindly note that vitamin A is a supplement, not a vaccine.

Yes you can give your baby sardine. As regards how many times you can feed your baby, Continue frequent, on-demand breastfeeding, including night feeding for infants ✔ Introduce complementary foods beginning at six months of age ✔ Increase food quantity as the child ages–while maintaining frequent breastfeeding • Provide 6– 8-month-old infants approximately 200 kcal per day from complementary foods. • Provide 9– 11-month-old infants approximately 300 kcal per day from complementary foods. • Provide 12– 24-month-old children approximately 550 kcal per day from complementary foods. • Local research is needed to determine the best combinations of foods and practices to achieve these levels of energy intake. ✔ Increase feeding frequency as the child ages • Feed 6– 8-month-old infants complementary foods 2–3 times per day. • Feed 9– 11-month-old infants complementary foods 3–4 times per day. • Feed 12– 24-month-old children complementary foods 3–4 times per day. • Offer nutritious snacks 1–2 times per day, as desired. ✔ Gradually increase food consistency and variety as the child ages, adapting the diet to the infant’s requirements and abilities • Feed mashed and semi-solid foods, softened with breastmilk, if possible, beginning at 6 months of age. • Feed energy-dense combinations of soft foods to 6– 11-month-olds. • Introduce “finger foods” (snacks that can be eaten by children alone) beginning around 8 months of age. • Make the transition to the family diet at about 12 months of age

Usually, you'll start feeling Braxton Hicks contractions sometime in the second trimester, getting more pronounced the farther along you go in pregnancy. They can feel like a tightening of the stomach, as your abdomen (or rather the uterus) gets hard for no reason.
