Arushi

its better to feed him with a paladai...add prescribed drops of each medicine to 1 paladai milk...do that to all medicines...4 medicines 4 paladais of milk

Arushi

after each medicine give 1 paladai only milk...so that the baby wont feel any vomiting sensation...

Arushi

its better to avoid bottle...as he s a premature one der r more chances of aspiration..so be careful..paladai feeding is the best...

Sonali Shivlani

You can give him the medications independent of the feed as well. With a dropper or thru the bondla as suggested
