hello, My baby is 2month old n his weight is 3. 700 kg. his pee 10-12 time a day and poop 3-4 time a day but still i think my milk is insufficient for my baby. he continuely feeding for 6-7 hour with little break but not sleeping well. today ,I tried milk powder with breastfeed then he sleeps continuous for 3 hour. so I think it might be hunger problem. so,I have decided to feed milk powder with my feed. In what contains I should give him milk powder?? which is more healthy milk powder or cow's milk?

Answer:
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. 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. Formula milk is made of animal milk only and has added nutrients to match it most closely with breast milk. Some prefer fresh animal milk (not cow's) over formula milk. Packet milk is pasteurised animal milk only which is more hygienically packed and hence safer. You can also read the following blog to help you decide on the type of milk https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/all-you-wanted-to-know-about-the-milk-intake-of-your-child/619
