Question: My baby is 4 months old and now i am trying to give her top feed as breast milk is not sufficient for her.
She is not taking bottle.. What to do.
Answer: Hi dear
For babies till 6 months atleast breast feed alone is recommended..as babies digestive system are still not matuared....you can try to improve your diet which helps for more secretion of milk....
breast milk is very rich in developing immune system and also healthy growth of baby...so breast feeding atleast a year should be given..if you feel you have less secretion dont make less feeding baby your secretion ll improve only if you keep feeding baby either milk is there or not..for secretion you take iron and protein rich diets like dates boiled with milk,soya,garlic,jaggery,carrots,greens especially moringa leaf and dry nuts which helos to increase your lactation

Question: My baby is 3 months and 4 days old. She is not taking bottle milk as my breast milk is not enough for her. What should i do to introduce her bottle?
Answer: Hi Mommy, one of the milestone you are trying to achieve by giving your baby bottle which is great. Introduce baby to bottle has to be fun for baby so that they can take it happily and your life could also be easier. Here are few tips i used to convince by baby to take bottle. Hopefully this will help you as well.
Offer him a bottle in the evening after his regular feeding to get him used to the nipple. Start with a small amount of breast milk – about half an ounce.
Try a slow-flow nipple. For some babies, especially infants, a regular nipple may flood them with milk. If your baby gags when using a bottle, replace his nipple with a slow-flow one to see if that helps.
Let someone else feed him the first bottle. If you try to give your baby his first bottle, he may wonder why he's not getting your breast. He may be less confused if someone else makes the introduction. Ask your mother, your partner, a childcare provider, or a friend to help.
Try to be out of the house. A baby can smell his mother, even from a distance, so he may know that you (and your breasts) are just in the next room.
