Q.

Baby not eating

I have a 7month old baby girl, she do not want to eat her Cerelac, she does not want to drink her Infacare 2 formula, if she does, she is having loose stools. But she only want to drink water (plain cooled boiled water). Now tell me when will she grow, if she do not want to take her bottle feeds, as I am not breastfeeding.

Your baby's main source of nutrition should be her milk at her age.Water will not provide any nutrition for her. You need to find a formula that she will drink. Try her on NAN Pelargon which has a yoghurt like taste which she may prefer. Another formula she may like is Lactogen 2.

I opted for Lactogen 2 and she is drinking it like a baby should, no hassles and no fuss. Thanks
