saranya devi

Bm is not enough for her.so using formula milk. so Dr prescribed to avoid feeding bottle

Sheeba Vijesh

hi saranya, it is best to feed baby bm or formula milk till 6 months. doctor is right in saying to avoid bottle, as bottle is not healthy. but cerelac is not digestible for baby now....


Hi Saranya. At this month breastfeeding or in your case top feed is enough. You can check out our useful articles on Weaning Foods. It will help you in your coming months

saranya devi

Ohoo its too early to give Cerelac to such a small baby...do exclusively bf if nt that u can try ff ...semi solid shud be start after 5 mnths

hi dear cerelac should not be given atleast for 7 months this is what my doctor told me, till 6 months strict no, and they recommend home made cereal type recipes only. try that instead.

saranya dnt give cerelac now.. and if you are saying that she doesn't like the taste of formula milk.. you can talk to your pediatrician and can try changing formula..
