Hi anuja,perinorm increases prolactin levels and helps in breastmilk production but it's prolonged use can lead to side effects due to drug itself .Thus I would advise you to kindly consult your obstetrician /whoever started perinorm to decide about tapering the dosage and eventually stopping it .

Hi anuja, breastmilk is digested sooner than a conventional formula feed .Thus need for frequent feeding is there. No need to worry ,just continue the breastfeeding .The baby will demand feed as per his hunger so feed acoordingly .keep visiting your pediatrician on timely basis to make sure the growth milestones -height /weight , along with other milestones are in sync with your child 's age.

Hi innu ,very happy to hear that .May God bless your baby. Surely this goodness of breastmilk in infancy will go a long way in building a stronger immunity and better health for him.

Hi himaja ,I would suggest you breastfeed as much as possible at least till 1 yr of age .since you are giving formula feeds once a day along with breastfeeds ,I don't think you need to add any other top feeds as formula feeds available commercially according to a child's age provide adequate nutrition to them (do consult your family pediatrician about which one suits your child best ).

Hi suby, WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for at least till 6 months but one can feed as long as 1- 1. 5 years or even more. But weaning should start along with other top feeds 1 year onwards as breastmilk alone won't provide adequate nutrition for proper growth.

Hi Manisha, you could try weaning using spoon feeding method or maybe bottle method (I would suggest spoon method ). try spoon feeding once a day gradually and increase frequency as you wean child from breastmilk. Hope this helps .
