  1. Hello and welcome to Medimetry.For making Nanpro add the required amount of boiled and cool water in bottle.After that add the required quantity of milk powder in the bottle.Shake the bottle.Always feed baby with baby in your lap,cradle baby's head on your arm and with other hand place bottle in baby's mouth.Never give milk in lying down position since it can spread to middle ear and cause infection.Tilt bottle completely till it fills the nipple,avoiding air to go in baby's mouth.By 6 months baby may be taking 180-230 ml every 4-5 hours.Continue to breastfeed too.If baby is already 6 months old introduce one cereal and pureed fruits and vegetables .Introduce one new food at a time and wait for few days for any allergic reaction before introducing another food.To help determine baby is taking enough follow well baby checkup where baby's weight,height will be monitored.I hope I answered all your queries.Keep me posted.Take care and regards!
