#3. Avoid giving refined wheat flour or any such packaged products that contain these as they contain artificial sugars and preservatives.
#4. You can offer small quantities of water to your child as babies start feeling thirsty. Also, if you notice hard stools, it is an indicator that the baby is getting less water. You can give water using a sippy cup as your child would have a fairly good grip by now.
