Yes DEBASHREE BHATTACHARYA her pediatrician also told me that for most of the babies cow milk is not suitable but suggested me to use packed cow milk only if she digest ... I am giving her since she was 4 months old and she is healthy and till now do not experience any health issue.

Hello Kavita, cow milk is not recommended for babies till 1 year by all pediatricians as babies can't digest lactose before 1 year of their age. You can give your baby formula feed... but please keep in mind it may cause mild constipation. So give smashed ripe papaya side by side.

till 9 months I can continue.. no problem but afterwards I have to switch.. how can I do this because I am planning to join work again.. so if she start taking formula or cow milk it would be easier for my husband to feed her too... because the process for which I am going to give interview sometimes I have to work in night shift also.

may I know the reason for switching breastfeeding to cow or formula milk? during night time for baby breast milk s good because it stimulates a deep sleep.. so I suggest you not to change till 9 months..
