My son is 8 months old.. we did exclusive breast feeding till 6 months.. then started formula milk as he was hungry most time and my wife did not have enough breast milk. Even though formula fed, we were giving breast milk 4 times atleast. But now he has completely stopped accepting breast milk and prefers only formula milk. Will this affect his immunity. What can be done to encourage his breast milk intake. Please suggest

Where am I?

Hi,

Exclusive breastfeeding is necessary for the first 6 months only. Now the child has to consume soft weaning food, some amount of milk which maybe either breast milk or formula milk. Even if your child doesn't take breast milk that should be of no great concern. His nutritional needs can be met with through an adequate solid food diet. Thanks. For more queries please consult the paediatrician online or by a physical consult.
