Hello, My doctor is 4 months old. She was exclusively breast fed. Her birthweight is 2. 975 kg and now she is 6kg.. Once when I had sore nipples and cracked in it. It was so painful. So my doctor said to give formula feed for a day. But when I tried it once itself she started vomiting continously and a fever followed. Then the doctor said she may be having a milk allergy. But her stool test showed no reducing agents... after a week we tried once again and it repeated. Now I m worried that my milk is not enough. Her paed. doctor suggested to start weaning. But he said he is not sure how she is going to react with cerelac as it contains milk. What should I start with then? How can I make sure she is having milk allergy as she has no problem in taking mine. Please help. .

it could be that your daughter is having allergy to the formula milk, as it may contain soy fat or soy product. Once you start weaning you can give natural milk ( not cow's). Similarly you can start with juices & green leafy soups at 4 months. Then by 6 months, instead of packed baby food, you may give fresh ones. You can make porridge of rice, rice flakes, sago to start with. Other non milk weaning foods are mashed banana, mung dal, mashed potatoes & veggies, khichri. At 7 months,egg yolk half boiled. You may give your milk only and give other non milk solids. Hope it helps
