Hi,
Thanks for the query.

The options are:
You can try to give breast milk, as with frequent sucking the quantity of breast milk will increase and the baby can become accustomed to breast milk.

You can try different brand of milk power for which he can adjust possibly.
Some of the available brands are Dexolac, Dexolac premium, Nan etc.
Before starting one of these better to consult your regular pediatrician and take his advice regarding this.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,

Usually breast milk is the best food for the baby.
If not, in top-feeds that is better to which he gets adjusted.
As now he got adjusted to cow milk that is better.
So when you are going out if cow milk is not available you can use one of the milk powders I suggested.
If he becomes adjusted to it you can continue that instead of cow milk.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
