better not give formula and defintely no cow's milk

Sonali Shivlani

No cows milk. Consider a combination of expressed breast milk and some solids. While baby is getting used to solids formula can be used if breast milk is not enough. Breast milk can be stored in the freezer for about three months and hence you can start expressing and storing well in advance.
