Try to express her milk either manually or use manual/Electric breast pump and feed them with Spoon/Paladai
Stop giving formula with bottle, give with Baby feeding cup, Spoon or Paladai
Almost all formula milk has more or less same problem.
You can prevent Diarrhoea with strict hygiene: Hands, Utensil, water etc
Stick on any single brand formula milk but try your best to avoid using Formula.

My son is 11 month old and doctor has prescribed him zincovit syrup 5 ml twice a day is it safe and recommendable kindly help as on internet I found that zincovit drops to be given for children below one year. Kindly help.
but 5ml once a day is enough
if the growth of the child is proper there is no need to give any health supplements or calcium or multivitamins to the child but if it is less than your doctor will examine and according to the deficiency the doctor will give medicine and tell till what time a supplement needs to be continued.
but it is at the same time advisable to go natural by giving diet as per age of the child which contains all the important nutrients and supplements.

Regarding feeding, it should be started gradually providing thick gruel of milk/ pudding / soup to the baby.
Initially the baby will just accept 2 3 spoons of it which if also suffice for the time being provided this to be repeated over 3 4 hrs again.

Stick to this and keep feeding baby.

I am a breastfeeding mom. As I got my period after 4.5 months,it was too heavy and with clod and it was running for 22 days. I consulted my Dr. He prescribed me regestrone10 mg for 3 times for 7 days and regestrone cr after that for 21 days. I take it regularly but I noticed spotting. I even do not miss any pill. What happened to me? Usg report was ok. I take methi jeera water for breast milk.
So kindly take a follow up with your doctor who will tell you whether any change in medicine or any other investigation is needed or not.

Sir my baby is 4 month and 15 days old he refusing feeder suddenly doctor change his formula isomil what to do he will take feeder.
Hello. My baby is 1 month 15 days old. She has been found reducing substance present in her stool. Previously she fed nan pro but then my doc suggest to switch to isomil but it tightened her stool very much so my pediatric advise to give her nan lolac but still reducing substance is pressing her stool. My breast milk is not enough to feed her completely n I am trying constantly to feed her with my breast milk but I failed and that makes her fussy n cranky. Pls suggest me some solution or what formula is suited for her.
You should focus on just one powder formula milk and make it correctly in terms of composition, be it any. Stop bottle feeding if using. Measure water 30 ml with 10 ml syringe, and mix with one scoop level full powder. Use cup and spoon feeding. Child will be happy and full. Continue breastfeeding. Consult me if still problem persisting. Will advise.
