Baby was not latching properly, fed formula milk. Dr advised diluted boiled milk. Which one is better ?

Hello, I am AAAAA, we have a baby boy 6 weeks old. baby was not latching properly, struggled so much to make him latch, so had to depend on formula milk - Nan 1 pro, however we are told by a senior pediatrician that Nan 1 pro might create problem with baby s intestine etc...and asked to continue with pasteurized milk, we are doing that, also giving diluted boiled milk. Of course, we express breast milk and give, however quantity is very less. We are very confused which one to continue pasteurized milk, diluted boiled cow milk or formulate Nan1 pro? Please advise. Thanks, AAAAA

Pediatrician 's  Response
I think your docter seemed to have confused you completely.I think there is no baby who cannot be latched on to the mother.One will have to be patient will have to rule out issues in mom (flat nipples or fatigue ) which can be tackled for successful breastfeeding. Such issues need to be tackled at the earliest otherwise mom will get lactational failure.Meet a pediatrician for this issues who has time and sensitivity to tackel this issue.If it is determined that the baby will need substitute then the best would be Nan Pro 1and not diluted pasturised cow milk .Nan will not create problems in the intestine .In the meanwhile also give baby the expressed milk via katori spoon.
Take Care.
