Brief Answer:
Lactogen 1

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using health care magic.
You can use Lactogen 1 milk powder for your baby.
I would like to suggest you some tips for breast feeding.
1. Night feeding will increase the breast milk supply. Always first feed the baby with the breast milk and the offer the powder milk.
2. Drinking lots of water and liquids will increase the milk supply.
3. Proper attachment and latching of the baby at the breast will lead to proper let down of the breast milk.
I hope I have helped you.
If you have any further query please feel free to ask.
If you do not have any other query then please close the question and rate it.
Thank you.
