first of all u should tell ur baby`s weight. if her weight is more than 10 kg. than it is ok. for ur baby fresh milk is better than formula milk. feed ur baby along with u 7 ur family in all time like breakfast, lunch, snacks at tea time & at dinner. try other times also in between these feed. try all food variety at a time like bread, rice, salad, green vegetable, sweets, curd, fruits, dairy product. keep trying repeatedly & repeatedly if ur baby rejected any things. u learn ur baby by repeatedly like A,B, C etc & counting, than this method why not trying for food. not feed forcefully. it may be there that baby has no hungry at ur trying time.
keep patience & keep in mind that he learn by repeatation.
best of luck for baby feeding.

Buffallo's milk or whole milk from tetrapack is the best alternative than Formula. Cow's milk is fine but not now. Do not worry about the water. When she starts on foods she feels thirsty. Never force anything. Finger foods are to be started first slowly before proceeding to a proper meal. Your Baby Needs Variety in Her Diet. Try to find out what are her likes, give her liking food with variety in it. Choose the diet from the following categories. 1) Bread, cereal, rice, pasta. 2) Vegetables. 3) Fruits. 4) Fish, chicken, eggs, Meat and pulses. 5) Milk and cheese. Try to fit one variety from each category in the meal. Do not force it may reverse. Your baby may take only one out of each, reject the other four. Try each time she may like few of the varieties. Remember patience is the only way and no medicine for it.
