Hi meet a, I couldn't breastfeed my baby after 3rd month so started with nestle lactogen which is considered best. However my baby had constipation problem so I started cow milk from 4th month . Now my baby is on cow milk and doing good with God's grace. You can also start cow milk but ensure it is good quality. I refer Pride of cow if you are in Mumbai or pune.

Cow milk is best for growth of the brain but till the time you dont boil it properly its not safe. We take about 1 ltr let it boil till it doesnt become half and then we can give it to the baby but we even add water in it. i got this opinion of giving cow milk from my friend whoz daughter is mentally challenged and she is now 3 yrs old but does not speak or even sit but after giving cow milk within 4 months they have seen the child responding to them and started to sit but for a while

Hi meeta, I am also dealing same issue. I have to join in mid April. I consulted my pedc and shared my concern. She suggested me to come 20 days b4 joining office so she will prescribe food or FM or something as per my child health and I can also monitor his digestive issue (if any) b4 joining, and can also understand what he is comfortable with. I am sharing this to you so that its always better to share things with your child pedc rather than starting something which we may not suit baby, as they r ebf. Consult and start.

I think you should consult your doc on how to express and store breast milk... and practice the same for a month so that you may know how it works... before depending on lac or cow milk... first try to give yours after storing the milk.... i suggest buy a avent philips breast pumps and try it.... i have 2 month old baby going to join my work nxt month am already practicing it... and yes its working grt for my little one.
