Daily Health Tips: Can I Mix Exclusive Breastfeeding With Formula Feeding?


Q: Hello Doctor. During the time of breastfeeding (0 – 6 months), is it okay to feed the baby with other milk? And according to medical recommendation, when is it the right time to start mixing other kinds of milk like Lactogen with breast milk?

A: Thanks for writing in. Is it okay to feed your baby with other milk during the first six months? No! During the first six months, your baby should be getting pure, unadulterated breast milk. After this period, you can now include infant formula. Remember that your baby should not get regular cow milk until he/she turns 1 year old.
