Is Vicks baby rub safe for 3 month old who weighs 13 lbs 10 oz?

Is Vicks baby rub safe for 3 month old who weighs 13 lbs 10 oz?

I never recommend it: Any pungent odor or fume, whether rubbed on or placed in a vaporizer can cause increasing congestion in an infant. I equate vicks to cigarette smoke in young infants.It has little if any value at any age and never before age 3-6yrs. This is a throwback to the sweat lodges of the indians and should be abandoned along with leaches. ...Read more

My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?

By weight is fine: She is likely getting much more when nursing directly from the breast. While you might expect her take more from the bottle at this size, she may prefer the breast and baby foods (presuming she's being fed some). As long as she's wetting aces diapers in that 8 hrs, is happy after feeds , don't worry. Offer a cup with water, too- it's time to start learning. ...Read more

No, ma'am: Individual psychotherapy with family participation is needed to determine what stresses him & why he is allowed to self-calm with a bottle. Assessment includes family history for psychiatric disorders, parent-child interactions since birth, child's iq, academic & social abilities, teacher reports & a dental exam. Therapists teach more age-appropriate coping skills before ditching the bottle. ...Read more

Can I give 1oz water (boiled for 5mins) to 7 weeks old baby after every feeding ? She is breast fed.

Can I give 1oz  water (boiled for 5mins) to 7 weeks old baby after every feeding ? She is breast fed.

No that's too much: Water. Since water dosen't have a lot of salts we generally like to limit it to an ounce for the day. Too much water can dilute the salts in her blood and cause seizures. Water is ok to use in diet once baby is regularly eating solids. ...Read more

5 week old baby is constantly hungry. I've been breastfeeding him all day between 2 hour interval formula feeding.

5 week old baby is constantly hungry. I've been breastfeeding him all day between 2 hour interval  formula feeding.

Hungry baby: First of all do you have enough breast milk. Give your baby the breast. After20-30 minutes, if he takes more than 1-2 ounces you dont have enough breast milk. Secondly are you burping frequently, and third at five weeks he may have colic, in which case swaddle him or put him in a swing after feeding. ...Read more

10 month old poops 4-5 times a day and her stool is watery. She's formula fed and takes cerelac maize cereal. No temperature.

Intolerance: Watery stools are sometimes a sign of difficulty processing the feed. A frequent cause is the lactose sugar in most traditional formulas.A scorch like diaper rash is often present.Substitution with a lactose free formula may solve the problem within 3-4 days.Other agents like juices can also do it. Discuss with the kids doc at a regular checkup. ...Read more

Should my 3 months old baby be feeding every 3 hours? She's excusively breast feed

Should my 3 months old baby be feeding every 3 hours? She's excusively breast feed

More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well.After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs.This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep. Removing feeds from the sleep ritual alows them to learn to self settle. ...Read more

How long should baby feed from breast per feed? Baby 1 week old. I feel like i just feed her for 5, 10 minutes every 2 hrs. Want to excl. Breastfeed

That's fine: In nature, babies eat whenever they are hungry. If a young baby nurses for 5-10 minutes on each breast, and then happily sleeps a couple of hours, that is fine... As long as the baby is growing. After the first week of life, a baby will grow about 1 ounce per day for a few weeks. If worried about not having enough milk, mom and baby can just see the pediatrician to check on the weight and feeding. ...Read more
