Until one year don’t replace breastfeed /formula feed with any solids.
Always have a word with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
Do consider history of family allergies when introducing new foods.
Don’t force feed baby.
Until two years kindly breastfeed/formula feed baby on demand.It is a recommendation from WHO.
Do include as many varieties as possible in baby food.
Avoid honey,sugar(palm sugar,jaggery,palm jaggery),salt,milk till one year in any form in any quantity.
I would have incorporated three day wait in early stages of diet charts. It is said to be obsolete now.So you can ignore them and just watch for allergies carefully.
The above chart has been put up to just provide an idea and this can never be an alternate to any medical expert advice.
Always use sterilized bowls and spoons to feed baby.
Prefer open cup and spoon to bottles and sippers.

Avoid offering juices/soups/very thin porridge for regular meals before one year as they are said to replace breastfeed or formula feed after eight months.
