Child never took breast feeds, has normal milk along with formulas. What is advisable for better growth and weight gain?

Hi, I have 16 months old daughter. Her birth weight was 2.5kg and she was on Enfamil formula from day one to 3 months. Then we gave her Lactogen. Now for the last two months we are trying Farex 2. Once she was 4 months old, as per docor, we were also giving her Amul Taza normal milk along with formulas. She did not have mother feed at all. Please suggest a good formula for her better growth and weight gain as she is now 9.3KG only. I am really concerned.

Hi Deepika,
Please note the following.
There is no milk better than breast milk.
All the others are same quality in differant names.
You continue farex 2 till 2 years of age and then go to normal dairy milk-
Do not keep changing the milk.
How you must be giving solids,fruits, vegetables,etc and milk intake will be less.
Your child's weight gain is OK for her birthweight and present age.
So do not worry.
All the best
