Yes: If the person becomes unable to function independently and has no designated person that would be able to take care of him or her at home, either a nursing facility or a hospice home remain options depending on local availability and regulations.

Is there a nursing supplement I can use?

Dr. Pamela Lindor
Pediatrics 32 years experience
Yes: There are some supplements for breastfeeding moms which are generally considered safe. Before deciding to use one, please consult a lactation specialist or your doctor. Remember to continue taking your prenatal vitamins and plenty of fluid. Your nutrition is very important now, just like during pregnancy, so follow a healthy diet.
A member asked:

My baby is constantly nursing. Is this normal?

Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Yes: This is normal. Most of this is likely true feeding and necessary but some babies will use breastfeeding s a pacifier. Essentially true feeding is vigorous and consistent. Suck, suck, breath... Pacifying feeding is 30-40 minutes later and more like suck, snooooooooze, suck, snoooooze. During this phase of feeding baby isnt eating, just pacifying. That feeding can be stopped.
A member asked:

Why is my baby nursing less?

Dr. Lisa Roberts
Pediatrics 23 years experience
It depends: Depending on the age of your baby and what is going on, there are a number of possibilities. In a newborn, if your baby is sick, poor feeding may be a symptom. In an older infant who is eating solid foods, your baby may be getting more calories from the solids and more physically active (and also more efficient at nursing), so the feedings may be spreading apart. Good weight gain is a great sign.

What can I do if my baby is not getting enough milk from nursing?

Formula: Continue to breast feed, and use a supplement. The most common are soy or cow based formulas. Nurse first, then "top" your little off with formula. While i know you would like to nurse exclusively, sometimes mother nature needs a little extra. Please also refer my answer to using the herb fenugreek for increase milk production.

Is it safe to have an early ultrasound?

Dr. Ruth Crystal

Yes: Ultrasound has been used safely in pregnancy for many years. There is no radiation as ultrasound uses sound waves to make its pictures. Here are trusted links about ultrasound from acog: http://bit.Ly/ptgqjx and from the march of dimes: http://bit.Ly/nxjiep.
