The posts and  articles related to babies are mostly brain children of my readers who keep sending me queries. The most common query I have come across is “My baby is constipated.What can I do about it?”.I know how painful it is for the baby and the parents at such situations and hence thought to write a detailed post on this .I had my grandmother visiting us when I began writing this post(I have been writing this since three months.Forgive me for my lazy work 😦 ). So I took some of her help & tips along with information collected from my elders,friends,doctors,books and reading materials from the web and ended up with this post.I have collected a lot of recipes,tips,remedies from my grandmothers.Hoping to share them soon as and when time permits.So please stay tuned to my space(You can follow my blog and get my posts in mail or like my page in facebook and stay tuned with live updates) or bookmark this page to get the updates.

6 months to 3 years diet chart

Most of my readers would be very happy today on seeing this post. I had been delaying the release of this post due to several technical issues and personal reasons.Many parents wrote to me asking for a diet chart/meal plan for their babies and I kept saying soon and gave them a sample. This was in WIP(work in progress) state for more than 3 months and today I let it go live.The main reason for the delay was some incompatibility issue with my blog and I personally didn’t like posting a diet chart because I usually go by “FEED ON DEMAND”. Still I made some efforts(really huge) to get this done.Hope you find them useful. Continue reading “DAILY DIET CHART FOR BABIES & TODDLERS(with recipes)”
