Q.

formula?

Hi dr, my baby girl of almost 9 months have been breastfed from birth and has a very good solid intake during the day. My problem is that she does not breastfeed as much anymore. I have to trick her into it by picking her up when she is sleepy to drink. Do you think adding formula might make a difference? Maybe give 1 or 2 bottles of formula during the day and breastfeed at night? and then what type of formula will be best since she is not use to it at all?

Your baby is quite 'old' already and is used to your breastmilk. She may not take to a new formula very easily.Try her on Lactogen2 to start.
