Lactation & Infant Feeding

अन्नप्राशन – The Complementary Feeding Guidance Classes

When we talk about introducing semi solids to the babies, two most significant things are

  • What is offered
  • And how is it offered

It determines the lifelong health of the baby because “we are what we eat!” You might have noticed that you crave for certain foods/drinks when you are stressed/ tired/ extremely hungry? Have you ever thought the reason behind it? The way a baby is introduced to food will determine his relationship with food.

Contents & Topics of the अन्नप्राशन Classes
