hi Fatima tuz zahra ! I can understand yr concern.. u could continue with the medicine as prescribed by the doctor. also please ensure bottle is cleaned well and sterilized before serving it to baby as chances of infection increase if hygiene is compromised. avoid force feeding. as soon as she will feel better she would start taking food. meanwhile u could give her water in a clean attractive sipper. also try giving bottle in a dark room.
