Suggestion on milk feeds and IPV

Detailed Answer:
HI....Thank you for the trust in me and getting back to me directly. I understand your concern. Coming to your queries directly.

1. As you are giving Heritage toned milk - it is similar to packet milk. As the kid is tolerating this - you can give it even now. But usually you can change the milk after 12 months of age.

2. Any brand of IPV is good. Nothing to worry about it. More important is giving it when it is available. Please give the available brand and complete the schedule.

Regards - Dr. Sumanth
