From past two days I m giving her cow milk once or twice a day quantity of 60 ml but she intakes 60 ml or sometimes 30 ml a day and along this I m feeding her 4 - 5 times a day and night 2-3 times but still her weight is less. please suggest me where I am commiting mistake in feeding? And please let me know what to do ? while sleeping she feeds for 15 - 20 min but while awake she feeds only 5 min . please let me know what is correct n what is wrong in what I m doing in feeding? would you suggest me wether I can give outside to my baby to improve her weight at this stage?

Firstly cow milk is not to be given untill one year of age. You can feed her every 2 hours or when she demands whatever is earlier. If she doesn't gain wait appropriately than you may seek help from your paediatrician, who may advice you with a formula feed according to her requirements Don't worry Take care
