Q:

Is this true that formula milk fed babies gain more weight than bm fed babies? Should i start giving my three months baby fm to look fat?



Sheeba Vijesh

i too have heard that but i have no idea... but please, please, do not feed fm to your baby to make him look fat!!! if baby is active and achieving milestones, you shouldn't be worried about baby being lean.. i myself have a  lean baby... bm is the most valuable thing you can give your baby...

Deepa Makhija

if ur baby is gaining weight properly through ur milk then no need to give anything till 6 months..

Keemaya Wasnik

yes its true...but strictly stick to breast feeding as its good for your baby..bm fed babies have more immunity...n yes if baby is active n achieving milestones den no need to worry...

I think bm is best for the babies this I had tried on myself. I was not able to feed my elder daughter due to some reasons so she was so lean n in the second chance my son u won't believe he is of 3 ND he used to take my feed even now ND he's much much more active n strong then my 7yr old daughter.  so go for breast feed

Sonali Shivlani

Formula is heavier and yes weight gain is faster. However this is not healthy weight and can lead to obesity and other issues. Breast milk fed babies appear lean but are much more healthier. Please do not worry about baby looking chubby and do not come under the pressures of society.
