Brief Answer:
Breast milk best

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

Regarding cough and chills, she can try ginger tea. If that does not work then she can try doxylamine plus pyridoxine tablet with dinner. It helps with vomiting of pregnancy and also has anti-allergic effect.

Regarding baby formula for 6 week old, I would suggest that breast milk is best. If breast feeding is not possible then cow's milk is good enough.

Hope this helps.
