Hi Samyu sis,
How s baby boy ? It's the best 2 continue one and only mothers milk for 1st 6 months of babys life....if at all milk s sufficient

( Milk s said 2 be sufficient if child passes urine 6-8 times a day and sleeps 2-3 hrs aftr a feed...)

Supplementary foods have 2 be given only aftr 6 months...that too iron rich food like ragi s preferred..

Mother's milk can b continued till 2 yrs maximum

Plz don't prefer formula feeds n bottle feeds as it has many disadvantages....

If mother's milk s less then give formula feeds as per doctors advice n that too not in bottles.....plz....

Hi Samyu,

What is the necessary to give the formula milk?

Even if you are not having enough milk to feed him, you can consult your doctor for more secretion and many foods will help in milk secretion .

Atleast till 1 year ,you ought to give your milk to the child. You can very well give upto 2 years.

Till 6 months, only the mother's milk is enough for the child. It will give all the necessary nutrients for the child.

No other milk can be compared to this.

In case you need to join the office, if you are working, you can pump your milk in a container and keep it in the refrigerator, so that, the person who takes care of the baby, can feed that milk.

If only in extreme cases, that you are not able to feed the baby, then you can go for the formula milk. You can also give the plain cow's milk (boiled).

For much more details, please click the below link, in which you can find lots and lots of informations.
