I’d like to fill in some liquid for my baby in addition to breastfeeding.
What would you suggest I give at this age?

Non diary milk? If so, which?

Formula, if so, which one?

Thank you

Formula until age one.

Is he underweight?

Ask the doctor their recommendations. An underweight child (all mine have been) is a very different story than a very chubby child, who doesn't need as many calories in their fluids.

Formula. Milk or milk substitutes after age one, unless medically indicated.

I think that you only give formula until age 1 regardless. But speak to your dr.

Which formula do you all recommend?

He drinks water but I want something a bit more filling to substitute feedings

My kids are all allergic to dairy and soy, but I know quite a few people who are happy with Kendamil.

Are you just referring to formula? Do you also give him foods like beans, grains, fruits and veggies?

He doesn’t eat solid yet
Anyway I need something to substitute when I’m too busy to sit down and feed him.

I work from home and the round o’clock feedings are getting harder.
But I also can’t sit and feed him food while I work so u need something he can drink by himself

I would try Similac because my baby's like it better. But every kid is different.

He doesn't eat ANY solids?

You need to start trying to feed him different foods.

At 9 months old he needs to have solids. It's very important for babies to eat foods other than formula and breast milk, although keeping formula and breastmilk part of their diet is also important. Starr introducing him to solids.
