Answer:
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
