Monali Barat

bcuz hv lacking of bm...thats why...

aradhana sharma

give formula only if your milk is not sufficient, as per age quantity is mentioned in the FM box

Sheetal Rai

hi monali. that depends on how many time u breastfeed. u can start with once a day while breastfeeding the other times. and then can start according to your feeding schedule. but if ur breastfeeding all this while then how come the supply has gone down. ?

shikha Singh

follow the instructions given on box

Monali Barat how did u come to know ur feed is less ? did u meet a lactation consultant to find the same ?

Malvika Singh

Just follow the instructions on the box. But in the beginning prepare small amounts at first as your baby may not drink all the recommended amount at once. And do ask your paediatrician which formula to use for your baby. Do not go by market research or other's advice. I've made that mistake and my baby got constipated for a good few days.

thats not correct. ur baby can communicate only thru his crying.. can he talk to u .?? no.. he can only cry.. suckimg soothes a baby.. what if the baby is uncomfortable.. ? what if the baby is feeling gassy ? what if he is in some kind of pain.. a baby keeps sucking cause thats reassuring for him. sucking and drinking milk is diffrent.. when ur baby cries.. did u try to burp him ? put on shoulder and tried to take a walk ? did u try to sing a lullaby.. chk if baby is feeling hot or cold ??
lying in the same position cann cause discomfort.. what if he is itchy ? loading up formula is not the solution. ur feed is enough.. try and understand what baby needs..
