Hi, I'm planning to include formula feed along with breast feed as I feel low milk secretion. I already tried NAN PRO 1 (60ml of water with 1scoop powder) but it didn't suits my baby. He had vomited. Now he's fine. Suggest some formula milk and ratio for 1 month old baby. Thanks!

ratio is 30 ml to 1 scoop ... read the package carefully

it was mentioned but 30ml won't be sufficient for him and I was scared that 2scoops may cause some problem as it was first time. that's why gave in that ratio and consistency

don't worry. if 30 ml is not sufficient then you prepare 60 ml with 2 scoop.

Please assess your milk supply and seek help from a Lactation specialist before starting formula. Breast milk is the best food for the baby till six months of age. You can increase milk supply by ensuring that you feed or express more often. Also the lactation specialist can assess the latch for you to ensure that baby is stimulating correctly. Formula may not suit the baby and you may experience reflux loose motions etc. Over and above that it can cause the gut to become more prone to allergies.

no dear read the instructions carefully
2 scoops for 60ml
if u r adding only 1 scoop thn it will not prepare milk in proper way

Nan pro did not suit my baby either. I tried it when he was six months but he vomited it out. You can try to improve your breastmilk supply by eating healthy, drinks plenty of fluids, try Zandu Satavrex, and keeping a very positive frame of mind.

Also Subha I am sharing a recipe my mother in law for better lactation. I suggest you must try. Heat a spoon of Ghee in a pan, add Jeera, add a small lump of jaggery and mix well. Allow it cool down and eat it. I hope it works for you as well

I'll surely try it out Jasmeet. Thanks a ton dear :)
