Hi doctor,

My baby has completed four months. Please suggest the best formula milk for weight gain and overall development.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I am assuming you are asking for formula milk for a four-month-old baby.

May I suggest:

The best thing will be to continue breastfeeding until six months of age.

For a full term baby, I suggest Nestle NAN1 range - Nan Optipro HA 1 Gold. For a preterm baby Nestle Pre Nan.

Give breastfeeding as a priority. For overall development, no formula feed can replace it.

Every child is different. So, formula milk cannot be the best. It usually is a trial.

Other is from Abbott - Similac 1.
