Answer:
Exclusive breast feeding is recommended till 6 months. If you are lactating sufficiently to meet your child's need, you may not start with any top feed. Otherwise, if there is need to give top feed,you can gradually start with top feed. It is better to give formula with spoon. Bottlefeeding is not recommended as it can create nipple confusion and may pose hygiene issues.
