Patient : Can i indroduce rice cereal at 2 months to my baby
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. Ideally, you should not use any external food till the baby crosses 6 months of age. Thi s is because the fetus is not able to produce antibodies against any food and will not be able to fight the foreign food. If there is a reason to give the food like you are not able to produce milk, please talk to a Peditrician for advice. Hope this helps you. All the best.
