Plz first consult to pediatrician regarding feeding ur baby... my doc told me nt to gv cow's milk. Formula milk is good for babies like Nestlé nan pro 1(upto 6 mnths) or ur doc ll suggest sm other brands. BT don't do anything without asking to pediatrician doctor

Hi Susmitha, please continue with Formula milk. Cow milk is not good for babies digestive system. Alternatives were much less 3 decade's earlier. Now we got all the resources and information ready n tailor made to our problems. Also suggest you to seek pedia advise. Cheers..

Hi Sushmita.. I agree! Cow's milk even though diluted is difficult for the baby to digest esp. a young baby as yours. My daughter is 9 months old nw and still our paed hs adv not to start cow's milk and to continue formula till one year.

Hi sumitha, Check this out. https://www.healthychildren.org/English/ages-stages/baby/feeding-nutrition/Pages/Why-Formula-Instead-of-Cows-Milk.aspx It basically says that cow milk is too difficult for infants to digest so formula milk is best up until 1yrs.
