Hello Lifia,


However, the best food for babies aged 0-6 months is breast milk. Complementary food for ASI / MPASI is given after the baby is 6 months old. For babies under 5 months, they should not be given solids first because their digestion is not ready to accept food other than breast milk (and formula milk if there is no breast milk).


The following are signs that the baby is getting enough milk:

The baby's weight is increasing according to the chart in the KMS
Sufficient frequency of breastfeeding
The frequency of urination is sufficient, at least change diapers about 6x/day
The baby's health is maintained and the baby's mood is good

When the baby is restless while sleeping, you can try breastfeeding him first while being petted and singing lullabies. You can try pumping breast milk to find out your milk production. If you really feel that your milk production is decreasing, you can try tips on increasing your milk. If milk production still doesn't increase and you feel it's lacking, you can consult a pediatrician about options for giving formula milk. Formula milk is only given if there are indications, for example, insufficient milk production. Make sure the formula milk given is according to the child's age and is made with due regard to hygiene.
