Thanks for your query
As your baby is 3 months of age and i request you to do EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDING.till 6 months of age.With formula feed there is increased chances of colic. flatulence.
I suggest you to take plenty of fluids,fruit juices,milk and nutritious diet so that your milk increases.
Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
