Q.

Calcium Supplements

My 6month old is breastfeeding at night and bottlefeeding during the day when im at work. She is already on solids since 4 months, however she doesnt like the formula milk therefore she doest drink the recommended intake. I' ve tried changing formula' s but it doest help, she just doesnt like bottle milk at all.

Is the calcium suppliments an option at this stage or what should i do?
Worried, please help.

There is no need to use a calcium supplement at this stage as she is drinking some formula and she is also being breastfed.
