Dear Priyanka Jadhav , no formula can replace the goodness of breast milk. If milk production is an issue you should try feeding in regular intervals that will alarm your body to produce more and more milk. You can also try Pro PL, it's a milk supplement which improves lactation and also the quality of breast milk. Your lo prefers BM better than FM hence he refuses to take it. Also, better milk production requires mother and child's bonding, make sure to hold your little one to your bare chest whenever you can. Hope this helps.

hi Priyanka Jadhav .. don't give formula just to increase weight.. if you are producing enough milk then avoid formula.. but if you think your milk is not sufficient then give formula but just once or twice in a day as giving more formula will reduce your milk supply.. as don't worry much about weight.. just keep your diet good,feed your baby on demand and think about positive things while feeding.. if your baby is active and shows no other signs of discomfort then all good.. check weight after some time.. consult with your doc if you won't satisfied then..
