Q:

my baby is 10month old ,still she depend on breastfeeding ..please suggest how she can take bottle milk



Roopashree Siddireddy

Try to give in spoon or small glass. You can use sipper. Kids who are comfortable with mother...don't take bottle.

Sonika Singh

No bottles..start with sipper....or spoon....

Hi Neerja,
Have you started weaning your baby?
What you can do.
1.Wean off gradually.
offer age appropriate foods. this will gradually decrease dependence on Breast milk.
2.If you wish to offer formula milk you may start with a Vati and spoon or sipper. Avoid bottle feeding.
you may even express your milk and store and offer the same if you have to resume work.
3.When weaning offer close contact to the baby. cuddle him be with him but don't feed.
the child needs to be comfortable and feel secure.
4  offer a small quantity initially and then increase the quantity.

DrBhavi Mody I started weaning the baby ,still she is more depended on breast milk .

DrBhavi Mody

Neeraj Goyal increase the quantity of food gradually.
Give her heavy meals morning around 12.00 night around 7.00 . some thing like daliya or khichdi or dal rice. add a lil of ghee this makes the food dense and makes child fuller. don't go overboard while adding ghee. start with a small quantity first.
This should help.
bottle is best avoided.
