Along with your feed you can gradually start with top feed. Start by replacing one of your feeds with top feed. You can start with a lesser amount of 50 ml or so and then gradually increase the amounts according to child's acceptance. Again use sterilised spoon instead of bottle as it can create nipple confusion and may pose hygiene issues. All the best and do keep us posted.
