Ahalya is not doing too great because of a cold. So I didn’t offer her potato mash and butter tonight because I thought it was a little too heavy and the nasal congestion makes pasty food hard for her to swallow. So, I boiled a carrot and puréed it with some butter for dinner (but, remember that cooked carrot can cause constipation in babies). This was the 16th ingredient of our weaning journey.
NOTE: If you are breastfeeding your baby, make sure you offer the breast more often when they are taken ill because it will keep them hydrated and the antibodies in breast milk will help with common viruses and infections.
