My baby weighs 7 kg she s 7 mnths old and her birth weight was 2. 5 kg. nw she s on semi solid thrice a day plus breastfeed on demand. She is not accepting any other forms of milk. she takes water along with her food. she s active but looks thin My doubt is whether mother's milk alone s sufficient now or do I need to feed her formula or cows milk Please suggest me. Thanks

doctor's advise against cow or buffalo milk till 1 year of age. formula or breastfeeding is recommended. However do always talk to your doc before making any diet changes to your baby's schedule

Plz plz gv her buffalo milk n nt cow milk she is big enough to digest the same. PGI Chandigarh doctors hv announced that cow milk is one of the top most reason for diabetes in later ages. n asked moms to spread the message as much as possible. I switched over immediately when heard the same, my child is also 7mnths
