Use Of Formula Milk For Babies 1 Month?
my child is 11 months old but I have given milk to a 1 year old childrnI have given milk at his age but he doesn’t like it
Hello Miss Lucy,
In fact, children over 6 months of age have no basic food for breast milk or formula, but complementary foods for breast milk (MPASI). Breast milk or formula can be given at will, or about 2-3 servings a day.
Formula milk should be given according to his age. Usually, formula milk already has certain nutrients that are adjusted according to the baby's needs. The difference between formula milk for babies under one year of age and above one year usually lies in the amount of calcium, iron and phosphorus, which in milk over one year have higher levels to meet their needs.
Regarding your current child, the difference is quite narrow, only one month. If you've tried it but your baby doesn't want it and there's no other alternative, it's probably okay to give it the milk. If breast milk is still available, you should continue to breastfeed because breast milk is a good source of nutrition and can be given until your child is 2 years old. After one year, you can give him UHT cow's milk in addition to formula if there is no allergy.
The best step is to consult a pediatrician to determine the right nutrition according to your child's condition based on the results of the examination. Don't forget to check your child regularly at the posyandu to be weighed and record the results on the KMS. In addition, stick to the immunization schedule.
