My baby is near about 6months what kind of solid food I give to him?

Firstly u can give him only Iron-fortified cereals (such as rice, barley and oatmeal) mixed with breast milk or infant formula (It’s best to start with rice cereal, since it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction.) and Breast milk or infant formula
Your baby will only eat a little bit of solid foods at the beginning.
Start with 1 tablespoon of cereal combined with 3 tablespoons of breast milk or infant formula once a day.
Little by little, increase the amount of cereal to 3 to 4 tablespoons mixed with breast milk or infant formula once or twice a day. Remember: You can choose how thick to make the mixture by adding more breast milk or infant formula. In few days,
Pureed and textured cooked vegetables and fruits (start baby on one food at a time to see if there are any allergic reactions)
Unsweetened, non-citrus juices, such as pasteurized apple or grape, mixed with water from a cup
Breast milk or infant formula( you must continuo)

Started feeding my son super pureed fresh fruits and veggies at 2 months because he wasn't filling up in formula. Not saying this is okay for your little one. But if it's needed try the cereal with formula or breast making sure to mix it thin, anything to thick baby can choke on. And if you would like try something easy on little tummies avoiding high allergen foods and constipating like bananas.
