Does baby who have top up milk has less immunity than baby who drink mother milk? Since their mother do not get enough milk to brest feed.

3 Doctors Answered
Mother's milk is best for the baby, but you can give top up milk also but clean and boil the bottles before feeding.
Definitely if you are able to provide mother's milk to baby for the first six months it helps the child increase the immunity levels. She can always take supplements to increase her breast feed, details of which we can provide you on an online consulting.
Answer to your both queries: 1. Mother's milk provide immunity not top milk. 2. There is no cause of less milk production unless breastfeeding is reduced or stopped and mother is not taking good nourishing diet including milk and its products.
