    You can soak ragi for 12 to 14 hours, then sprout it, roast it and grind it to powder. You can make porridge out of it and give. I don't know if you can give kambu and other millets for 7 to 1 months baby. You can ask the ped if you can give any millet at this age. If he says yes, you can give sorghum(solam, jowar), kambu(bajra) in the same method as ragi. You can make a multigrain porridge powder and give the same.

    Millets can be used for making idlies. At 8 months, you can give an idly to a baby. It is fun to hold, and eat. You can make them in hand-holding shapes as well.
    There are a few recipes on the internet. Use the version with less urad. You can also substitute Toor for half the urad. This would make diapers less smelly.
    Parents can also eat this idly, because it is less in carbohydrates, and calories.

    Wash the millets like ragi bajra well. There is a layer called sonai(tamil) that is not good for digestion. Rub well and clean dry and roast well before grinding.

    Always give very litte and in the early morning to observe how your lo reacts

    Simplest recipe i followed is

    A spoonful of Ragi powder +water + salt + little ghee and cook for 5 - 8 minutes till you feel Ragi is fully cooked

    A spoonful of ragi powder + water+ sugar + milk + little ghee and cook

    I used to cook in microwave for 3 minutes by stirring in between 1 minute interval


    For sweet version You can also Add apple purée while cooking or mashed banana after cooking

    You can also add almond , kaju powder once the baby is little older ...

    I tried sprouting and making powder , my kid rejected it .

    Initially I used something called Silver spoon brand of ragi powder , it used to be available in medical Shops , not sure if they carry any more
