You didn't mention the weight of the baby based on which we can judge whether your baby is really malnourished or not. You need not worry about her. There are many more years for her grow. Continue giving breast milk (if you had not stopped yet) along with soft diet like mashed rice with dal. You can also give milk and curd too. Also try giving fruits this would help her gain weight. You can contact me through chat consultation or direct quiries section any time.

Myth - Small breast can't produce sufficient milk

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Breast size has nothing to do with the quantity of milk produced. Large breasts just have more fat tissue, which is unrelated to milk production.

I want to stop breastfeeding as my child is 14 months old but she refused to take any other milk. So please suggest me the ways how can make her to drink.

General Physician,
You simply refuse to breast feed and when the child feels hungry you feed from a cup with spoon or a sipper but do not use nipple and bottle. You can pit a bana aid on nipple and she will refuse to suck seeing the difference from normal nipple

My baby boy is around 4 and half months old. He refuses to take milk from right breast suddenly. He fusses when I put him in my right breast. I am worried whether I ll end up with low milk supply. Please advise.

Nothing like that. Just empty whole breast at a time. Then only go for other. Apply olive oil gently to the nipples and areola. Do not worry. Watch some nursing videos in youtube. God bless u.

Normal diet of small child is. From birth to 5-6 months-- breast feed only 3-4 hrly interval six times a day. Their after start reducing the frequency of breast feed and start with soup like feeds two times at six months, increase to four times at one year. Breast at one year is given only two times for 10-20 minutes only. Next step in development is self feeding. By 9 months child start picking up things lying on floor and put it in mouth. That he should be taught self feeding. This period runs upto 18 months. Your child has to pass all these stages. First find out what type s of food he likes of course at home. Give these food six times to be eaten by himself. It is high time child learn to eat by themselves. Otherwise they become timid children.

Breast feeding to baby is necessory up to 6to9 month after that it is inadequate to proper growth. Breast milk stop when you stop feeding. .(4 year is wrong)
