Baby not drinking milk
My girl baby who is 3 months old does not drink milk properly.. due to low milk supply im able to give her limited breastmilk hence i am mostly givin her formula Nestle NAN PRO 1. ..these days my baby starts crying whenever we give formula thru bottle..she moves here n there n avoids drinking formula..also she sometimes spits out or throws up after drinking..she does this with formula not breastmilk..im worried about her health n weight gain. Sometimes she drinks formula milk sometimes she doesnt...i Have following questions: 1. Right now im allowed to give NAN pro 1 only..how to make her drink it. 2. Is cows milk suitable for 3 months baby..can she digest it. 3.what can i do if my baby dislikes formula and milk is less inspite of nutritious diet and intake of lactare capsules, shatavari granules etc. Feeling anxious pls advice.

What was the babys birth weight and current weight? Cows milk is not suitable for a 3 months infant. To give feeds on demand is the best technique. Babies cry for a lot of reason, every cry isnt a hunger cry. I would suggest sticking to breastfeeds alone if the weigth gain is adequate. If not , continue breastfeeds and top it with formula feeds on demand preferably with spoon/palladai instead of bottle.
