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.

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?

hi, my baby always seems whingey and has now going of all his milk feeds what do you think it could be? he also fell backwards yesterday and worried about whiplash, he slept more than usual last night and woke up not taking his feeds, but he went of them before all this happened. He has also started weaning, maybe he has no need for milk?

I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
