Take 2 Tbsp. of ragi powder, dissolve it in water . Once done , switch on the gas and keep on stirring until it becomes a mash kinda cooked form. You can add more water or jaggery to it. Once the mixture starts coming off the sides of the vessel, You can switch off and let it cool. Manna ragi porridge is ready to be served 🙂

  • Should I wash my 2-month-old baby son’s hair everyday. Also application of oil and shampoo on daily basis. 

No, you can wash his hair twice a week or on alternate days if the hair is sweaty . Application of shampoos on a daily basis is not good as it contains loads of chemicals. Please stick to oiling and shampooing on alternate days.

  • My baby is now 10 months old. Is it good to give her pomegranate juice and shall I start giving smashed eggs to her? Is it good to give raw tomato, apple, pineapple, mango etc to babies or should we boil all these?

Yes you can give pomegranate juice to a 10 month old baby. Pomegranate is rich in iron, potassium, magnesium and other nutrients. You can start this during lunch time for your baby.

Smashed eggs in the sense, scrambled you meant ? Yes egg yolks can be given with butter , but no egg whites till 1. Raw fruits and veggies can also be given when thoroughly cleaned and washed.

    • thanx for this information i want to know about about 3 month old baby whis thing is batter ;my baby not sleep whole night plz tell me what can i do for it. plz give me solution

      • Shumaila,

        Babies till 8-9 months do not sleep through out the night. We do not have any other way than to have patience.

        You can start dimming the lights after the night feed and make no noise till he sleeps. As babies cant differentiate day and night, they do not prefer to sleep at night.

        Try incorporating a routine like after 8pm no one plays with your baby, dim the lights and make him sleep. He will slowly start getting into the groove.
