Are solids and fruit juices sufficient for an infant?

Hi, My daughter is 10 months old and she is poopoing six times a day, so I went to her doc and the doc suggested not to give her formula milk, but as I am away for most of the day, I can not breastfeed her so it is difficult to stop her milk for the whole day. Also I am worried that only solids and fruit juices can suffice the need for the milk for an infant?

hi there,

you can express your breast milk that is you can squeeze out and store and give it as and when reqd as nothing can suffice breast milk.

since she is ten months you should provide her with adequate amt of nutrition which includes all necessary proteins,carbs,fat,and like mashed potatoes,peas,apple, cereal porridge,egg and chicken which is minced are a great source.
