    Hi ladies
    I am a mother of twins who wereborn premature. Their milestones are near about that of normal baby. But the problem that bothers me is the kind of food they eat. I am so tensed reg that they are now 14 mnths old they also have got teeth. But they refuse to eat any coarse food insense even semi solids they immediate vomit after having few spoons.I amso tensed how to go about can it be that their throats are not developed.
    They are still in the mushy stage.
    Another thing is how to introduce dry fruits and fresh milk. ... My ped said don.t give fresh milk as the only source but u can add it in their food but I tried it with cornflakes,bread they refused to eat.....
    Please please guide me on this..
    Also what schedule to follow...
    My schedule is they get up at 9.30 .-at 11i give them breakfast
    Either it's ragi/dalia with dates/mash Getty@12.30 it's milk fm
    2.00 it's lunch rice with veggy and dal
    4 milk
    7 it's any fruit mash
    Milk at 8.30
    11its food any readymade cereal
    12 milk they off to sleep
    They dont sleep before 12 .tried so any times
    Please advice a schedule so as to introduce snacks too....
    Thanks
