Q.

From breastfeeding to bottle

Hi Dr, My son is 6 months old and is currently on solids and is breastfed. I would like to start weaning him off the breast onto formula, what formula would you suggest i start with (he is somewhat a hungry boy) and also any tips on how to get him to take the bottle?

You should try Lactogen2 if your son is rather a hungry baby.H should take to the bottle quite easily with this formula.

At this age, replace one breastfeed per week with a bottle feed.
This gradually reduce your milk supply and you won''t get engorged breasts.
