Can you wait?: Although most of the listed ingredients should be safe for your baby, the extra caffeine, artificial sweeteners and food dyes are concerning (these are not things an infant should be exposed to). Initiating a regular exercise program in conjunction with a reduced fat and sugar diet would be much healthier for you and your baby.

Suggest no: The child depends on you for nutrition. Unless you are planning to quit I would not. Dieting is important but can be done safely and still provide the child nutrition. Would consult a dietician for advice of how to diet at the same time to nurse. Best wishes.

A member asked:

Will adding cereal to my baby's bottle at night help him sleep better?

No: This is a common myth, and there is no direct relationship between cereal and sleeping. However, in babies with acid reflux (gerd) thickening the feeds with cereal may decrease the reflux, which can lessen their pain and might allow them to rest better.

Yes: Bottle feeding at night is fine. Do not put your baby to bed with a bottle though, as this causes tooth decay.

Go back to doctor: This is not normal and needs a rapid diagnosis because it may be a complication of the colonoscopy which can become rapidly worse and very severe. Do not delay, see the colonoscopist asap.
