Dear Azande,

Even Cerelac will help, as it also contains milk. It can be used as a thick feed. I hope this helps.

There is no way you can force a baby to have something she does not want. You will have to go around the problem and try and feed her other stuff. Even if she does not have any milk for a few days, don't worry too much. Try giving her boiled potatoes, mashed rice, mashed banana, etc. to keep her "full". Do supplement her with vitamins etc. so that the absence of milk does not lead to any deficiencies.
