Hello doctor, my baby girl is 4 month 2weeks old. her mother had delivered here through caesserian procedure (after 37 weeks as per LMP) and at birth she had a weight of 2.7 kg. Though for initial 2-3 days my wife milk was less and later on her milk was good. but after 2 months of regular checkup our paedetratian told us that she is not gaining weight much. Though my baby is quite healthy, and didnot have any problem. Yes, sometime it is feeled that there may be less milk in mother. the dr. advised us to go for NAN1 ( 30ml water and 1 and 1/2 nan1) and we started and later on this has been increased to 60 ml now. now her weight is 4.7 kg. and my wife also started to take lactonic ( ayurvedic milk enhancing preparation). now her milk is enough sometime. but now my baby had started to take much interest in NAN1 and with breast milk she plays and after 5 min of breast milk only she sleeps. my wife is very frsuted with this as she want to give mother milk which is best. we are confused with NAN1. please advice us. earlier my baby used to defeacate many time (normal) and now she defaecate only once in 2 days. please tell us the schedule of NAN1 or what ????
