Q.

Milk in take - 14 months old

Dear Doctor

I just want to know if I should worry, my daughter is 14 months after 12 months I changed her to Nido 1 before she was on Nan although she didn' t like the bottle that much as Im still breastfeeding, bt she was drinking it. So I introduced rooibos tea after she turned 1year and she loves it very much in a way that she doesn' t want milk anymore. So I now only breastfeed her at night and during weekends.

Should i be worried?

Your baby is probably drinking too little milk now.The best idea would be to breastfeed her at least twice a day.If you cannot do this then have you tried to give her Parmalat First Growth milk? Many babies like the taste of this milk.
