my baby is 3 and half months. she is completely on brest feed. but now my brest milk is not sufficient  for her. so can i start formula feed? which formula milk is good for my baby?


Nabanita there is nothing called insufficient breast milk. are u latching properly. also keep feeding on demand. more u feed more milk u will produce.


If you need a one time consultation from a lactation consultant, do let us know. sent u a chat.

nabanita, why are you feeling milk is insufficient for baby? if baby is crying, it can be due to gas, or other discomfort... still if you feel it is insufficient, which does not happen when an initial milk feed with baby is established, you can take drumstick leaves and drumsticks, fenugreek soaked overnight, leafy vegetables, papaya etc to help in lactation... also, feed baby more frequently and have lots f skin to skin contact(baby on bare chest)... your baby's digestive system is not ready for other foods till 6 months and breast milk also gives high immunity to baby against many diseases... take care dear...

oats.. , bread,  milk, egg .. make sure these kinda foods included in ur diet..  always drink a glass of water before every feed..  increase ur liquid consumption..  it l enhance ur bf.. and make sure that babies can wet 6-7 means..  baby s getting enough food..  and do consider wat sheeba said..  she s also rightly said..
