Answer: Hi dear, Till one year,there is no substitute for milk.it is the first requirement for baby even over solids.so you need to make an effort to give formula milk.if he like only breastmilk then express your milk and store in feeding bottle.it can stay in room temperature for 6 hours.and in refrigerator for 24 hours.

Question: my baby is 3mnths old.. i feed her with formula twice a day and rest bm.. but milk supply is vry low. can i start semi solid food for her..? like liquid ragi porridge or weat porridge?
Answer: no dear after 6 months only you should feed her solids. now only brestmilk or formula milk. is your baby completely on breast milk or on formula milk too ? if your breastmilk is not sufficient for her , then you shoud Have fenugreek seeds ,fennel seeds,cumin seeds. Make ragi milkshake and drink.Apart from this massage your breast in circular motions and drink warm water. for the time being you can offer her formula milk. keep offering her breast milk every 2 hour, the more he will suck , the more milk will produce. drink loads of fluid either in the form of water or juices , shakes , soups etc. dont loose hope. keep trying!
