Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
but why do u want to introduce formula
hi monali, why are you starting formula now?
Sonali Shivlani kindly advise
bcuz hv lacking of bm...thats why...
give formula only if your milk is not sufficient, as per age quantity is mentioned in the FM box
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. ?
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 ?
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.
thnks all mummas...
Actually aftr evry feeding my baby is crying just aftr 15-20mins nd again ask for feed...thats y m getting that my bm is insufficient for her....so i qant to start fm...
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..
thnks for ur suggestions Harneet Khurana
