days I used formula adviced by doctor.

You have not mentioned how old the baby is now. You have also not mentioned the current weight and height of the baby. At times the height increases more rapidly in a certain period and the weight may be slow. When you feed your baby massage your breasts while feeding. This will encourage the fat which is there in the milk ducts to pass to the baby and will promote weight gain. It is best to not look at formula as a weight gain tool if not medically required.

thanks mam...I told my baby is 50 days old..and her weight is 3.5 kg..
