Dear Lakshmi,

Hi. I am Dr. Taher and would like to help you and your son.

First of all, I would like to know why you are not breastfeeding or using any homemade foods. I think that even now, if you try concertedly, you should be able to initiate breastfeeding. Secondly, do try homemade cereals like rice, dal, and other carbohydrate rich items for weaning such as bananas, boiled potatoes, etc. Lactogen 2 is fine, actually, and perhaps he needs more time to learn to like it. Else, you can switch over to Lactodex 2 or any other milk for 6-12 months olds.
