Hello,

No, none of the milk powder is an alternative to mothers milk. And mothers milk never causes dehydration. If it is feeding the baby properly there's no chance baby will get dehydrated. So it's much better to give its own milk to the baby rather than formula milk; if there's no difficulty in feeding.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
