Over Feeding

I was recenlty blessed with a baby boy. I have a concern though regarding his feeding pattern since we are not staying together with her mom. The boy is 4 months old and the grocery that im buying every month is: 2X1.8kg Lactogen Milk 4 boxes of cerelac 22 bottles of purity. Is it possible that a four month old can eat so much staff every month?

This does appear to be a lot for a baby of only 4 months. Your baby son should only just be starting to be weaned onto solid foods now and would be eating very small amounts.

I agree, he should only be on milk at this stage. If a doctor has given you the go ahead, then maybe a box or 2 of cereal to thicken the milk. but the Purity? I''d say it''s too early. From 6 months on this should be what your grocery list should look like, more or less. (I''m not a doctor, just a mommy with a 7 month old).

A 4 month old shouldn''t be on solids yet anyway so you should only be buying the formula.
