My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle cough 5-6 times a day.is it normal or need to worry?

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle  cough 5-6 times a day.is it normal or need to worry?

Calories taken in: are ounces of formula times 20 calories per ounce so she is taking 12 ounces which represents 240 calories. Assuming she weighs about 3 kg her caloric intake is about 80 calories per kg per day which is ok. A tickle type cough is nothing to be worried about. Better still is to see how many wet diapers she has in a day. If at least five then she is getting adequate fluids. ...Read more

Can I drink hibiscus tea while breastfeeding my almost 2 month old baby??

Can I drink hibiscus tea while breastfeeding my almost 2 month old baby??

Stay away: A lot of herbal tea ingredients aren't recommended due to unknown effects. I'm sure the occasional bit of tea isn't any harm at all but I wouldn't drink them constantly without confirmation from your pediatrician and just stick to straight black or green tea. Hibiscus is on the list because, I believe, it can influence estrogen. ...Read more

Orthostatic hypoteni: Orthostatic hypotension means--- lowering of BP with postural change and hence dizziness. Seems like you need to increase your salt and water intake. Since you are breast feeding, your daily main entrance requirements are higher that nirmal healthy female of your age.

My 3 1/2 month old breast feed baby is not pooping for 4 days now, but seems ok. I'm worried about what's causing it?

My 3 1/2 month old breast feed baby is not pooping for 4 days now, but seems ok.  I'm worried about what's causing it?

Don't worry: Some babies poop 5-6 times daily at this age, others poop once every 7-10 days. Both, and everything in between is normal. Provided they are eating well, not vomiting consistently, not developing a distended abdomen, urinating 5-6 times daily, otherwise acting normally, and the stool is not hard....This is nothing to worry about. If unsure, ask your pediatrician. ...Read more

My 2 month old baby has suddenly stop taking breastfeeding.But he is having  formula.Whenever i try to give him breast feed he starts crying. ?

Keep trying: To have the formula from a bottle is easier for a baby because of the nipple opening is wider. It's much harder for them to get a milk from the breast. Keep on trying to breastfeed prior to the supplement infant with a formula. Be patient. ...Read more

1st congratulations: You could just have an engorged breast. You could have a block in the canals which lead the milk to your nipple. That can be treated with a warm compress. A more serious cause could be that you have a mastitis (a breast infection). You should be seen by your doc for that and take an antibiotic if that is the reason. ...Read more
