Scientifically babies should be given cows milk after 1 yr. Coz their guts develop to digest cows milk after tht age. At this stage her guts r not yet developed to digest cows milk. She can only digest mother's milk. It's best for ur baby. It gives her loads of immunity and helps her protect from all kinds of diseases. Formula milk should be given only as a top up. If baby is still hungry after sucking at ur breast. For more information, u can check babycenter. in. I trust this website a lot. U can also Google it out and other websites also say the same thing. My doc also suggested the same regarding cows milk. Just go by ur instinct and do some research before giving ur baby cowsmilk.

Try to give her ur milk most of the time. Only top feed when u feel ur milk supply has gone down for the day and the baby is asking for more.

My lo used to do the same thing at that age. Somehow I managed to feed her. I used to search the internet for baby food recipes. The one worked for me was combination of cooked apple and carrot. No need to add salt and sugar till 1 yr age. Don't force feed but if she takes 50% of the quantity of food u give. That's sufficient. Please don't give her cow milk before she crosses the 1 year mark. If she still develops no interest. Please consult the paediatrician for some medicine to raise her appetite.

Hi... U can try home made khichdi. Blend it well. It's better than cerelac. Also try mashed bananas, apples. Try to make it interesting. Try formula feed with a bowl and spoon. See if ur baby accepts that or not.
