What is the best nursing cover?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

All about fashion: Find a cover that suits you and covers you well. I don't really think there is necessarily a "best" in this category. I've see an older brother's jacket used in a pinch.
A member asked:

How can I make my husband feel included in the nursing process?

Help hold and burp: I can answer this as a father as well as a pediatrician. Sometimes, with a newborn you just don't have a lot of direct contact, because mom does most of the work. But, we can be a strong second string. We can make mom more comfortable, massage our babies during nursing, help with burping, and hold your baby right after he/she has it's belly full.

1000 mg: Women of reproductive age need about 1000mg of calcium daily. It is best to get your ca through foods rather than in a vitamin. An 8oz glass of milk contains about 300mg of ca. Other good calcium containing foods include cheese, yogurt, green veggies, and oranges.

Why does is my baby making clicking sounds while nursing?

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Really don't know...: Truthfully, they do lots of weird stuff. Some flop around, some wave in the air. Mine used to make sounds like she needed to "be oiled". Clicking could be the tongue undergoing the natural up and down motion needed to nurse, or just air pockets forming under the tongue. It doesn't matter, it's a normal noise, and as long as feeding is going well, is ok.
A member asked:

What do I do if my baby bites while nursing?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Laura Webb

Stop the session: It is most effective to immediately stop the feeding session. Do not purposefully yell or scream as this will just scare baby. After a few minutes start nursing again. Babies often bite when they are bored, full or teething. Watch your baby carefully during nursing and if they stop actively sucking take them off the breast. If your baby is teething allow them to chew on washcloths.
