Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Why do you want to give formula to your baby.

You should give your baby exclusive breast feeding and nothing else.

Breast feeding is ideal for your baby's brain development. It prevents against infections. It has got lot of other advantages also.

Gripe water is not recommended for babies.
