When can we introduce our 3 month old baby to the bottle feeding? We fear that bottle feeding might bring the chances for infection. Plz suggest

For babies under 6 months, neither juice nor water are needed unless a doctor says to try juice for constipation or another medical reason. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If that works, after 3-4 hours, you can gradually offer small amounts of formula. Go slowly and don't rush it. If the vomiting persists, call your doctor again. ...Read more
