No 4 month is not time to weaning and cow milk as a bad alternative to any milk.Continue breast feeding up to 6 month and this is the best POLICY.

ya ,after 4 month u can start the other food then breast milk gradually .
cow milk is best to start as it is light to digest
start in very small quantity and increase slowly as its stomach is not use to for it
i prefer cow milk then aavin milk.

Thanks for writing to us.
When your baby is feeding on your milk comfortably then instead of starting him on cow's milk, you start giving the baby other semisolid diet like mashed banana, etc. In vomiting, slight yellowish color is normal due to gall bladder secretions.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
