Breast feed is complete food for your baby..up to 6 month to 1 year.(we can not compare breast milk with any other artificial food).

Strong love bonding between mother and child.

So, Do not stop breast feeding.

If your child is not satisfied with sufficient feed,

Then Second option is government Buffalo milk, (start with 1 part of milk and 1 part of water , then according to tolerance gradually decreased water quantity )

You can start weaning(complementary food) after 6 month
Biscuits in milk
Mashed banana/potato
Any cereal may be mixed with water or milk
Mashed and boiled Vegetable
Boiled or Half Boiled egg
Custard Jelly


I wish your baby good health
