My baby is 2 months n 7days. Can I give both formula and breast milk 50-50 at the same time. As his weight is not gaining as it should be ,so my doctor suggested to give formula side wise. I don't want his to be fully satisfied with formula.. it will affect my milk supply.

I understand your concern. For matters related to medicines, any kind of a medical or diagnostic test or treatment of your child, it needs a closer examination by the Doctor. We at Parentune focus on prevention and best practices but do not prescribe any medicine or dosage or the interval between the two dosage of a medicine you may have been prescribed by your Doctor. Also, please note that there are various factors, which may be considered by a Doctor, for e.g. the. duration since a child is not well, physical symptoms which need a closer in person examination, history of issues or concerns with child, which medicine child was given earlier, how child reacted to that medicine or dose, how temperature is varying or the occurrence of fever, or allergy issues, if any. Considering all the above we recommend you to visit your doctor in person or get on a telecall consultation with your Doctor. Please take care! Take Care
