Q.

Breastfeeding

I have just recently stopped breastfeeding a 2 year old, during the day she is just fine but at night she cries a lot. Is this normal? What can i give her to substitute the breast milk? She never took any formula because she didnt want any we tried different formulas.

Your little daughter is already 2 years old so she only needs about 600ml of milk per day now. Offer her regular fullcream cow's milk or Parmalat First Growth milk at night.
