Hi, my baby is 4 months old, in February 13 she will be 5 months.

Patient : Hi, my baby is 4 months old, in February 13 she will be 5 months. She has only had a 2 oz breast milk when I pumped from a borrowed machine from the hospital. And only for 2 weeks she has, I think, sucked milk from me, every 4 hours for 20-30 min daily, but she will do it bothered, she was hesitant. So I stopped and she now takes organic formula. I'm concerned if her system is not working well for her to be a strong and healthy baby. How can I help her improve her system. Will iodine help since I have been doing reading on it. Please help. Thank you.
