Infant had less sucking power after treatment for cerebral palsy, given Dexolac special care. Is introduction of buffalo's milk advisable?

Hello, My son was born on 16th Jan 2012. He had cerebral Palsy after birth and was there in NICU for 20 days. When discharged from hospital, he was not having sucking power. May be because of that my breastmilk has completely stooped after 2 months. I started with Dexolac special care. Now he is 6 months old. Can i introduce buffallo milk in his diet and completely stop Dexolac special care after few months.

Atleat up to 1 year or 18 months give formula milk and after that you can start on reula milk used by every body at home .This is because formula milk has some vitamins and minerals added in it which you have to supplement separately.
you also try o feed him with semi solids from 6 months,in which case milk intake per day will become less.Of course cost is the afford ability factor for some.Take care Dr uma
