3 months old infant. Recently changed formula from 'novalac' to 'NAN' pooping continuously after every fed. Is it normal?
Common: In infants it is common for them to have a bowel movement after each feed. Most important is to see if the child is behaving and responding well. If baby is sucking well, feeding well, has no vomiting, smiles and is active, there is no cause for concern. But if you remain worried take the baby to a pediatrician to have the baby checked.
What are the stool's characteristics of a 3month old infant who is on a 100% milk formula feeding?
Varies some: Most develop regular stooling at a frequency of 1 or more daily. Color varies through shades of green to yellow to brown.
Tape or a dressing: It is best to use tape or a dressing to guide the tube away from the nose and out of the way of the hands. Tucking the tube into the child's clothes may prevent it from being snagged when you are moving the baby. Be sure to learn how to replace the NG tube or consult your doctor if you need help putting it back into place.See 1 more doctor answer
My 3 month old baby girl defecates on 4-7days interval, is it normal? Wat should I do so that she wil be able to defecate daily? I'm on mixed feeding.
Mixed feeding: By mixed feeding I presume you are both breast and bottle feeding. A peculiarity of breast fed babies is that they can go as long as a week without having a stool and it considered normal. Look on it as ablessing since you have fewer dirty diapers to change.
When can we introduce our 3 month old baby to the bottle feeding? We fear that bottle feeding might bring the chances for infection. Plz suggest
Now: You can introduce a bottle as soon as breast feeding is well established- I usually recommend at about one month of age. Its helpful if someone other than mom feeds the baby the bottle and if mom leaves the house so the baby won't cry to nurse instead! To decrease chance of infection make sure you clean and sterilize (in boiling water) the bottle equipment. Clean after each use.See 1 more doctor answer
Recently stopped breast feeding my 3 month old baby am experiencing severe pain and full breasts what can I do?
Engorgement: Your breast are engorged. This can happen when you stop breast feeding. First try gentle milking either with your hand, with a pump or with the baby. Use warm compresses/shower to get milk moving. Green cabbage leaves can be helpful with engorgement. Wrapping the breast w ace bandages may help. A medicine is also available to dry up milk. If fever -possible infection-call dr. Otc meds for pain.See 2 more doctor answers
3 month old baby doing green potty with mucus 4 times day after. Strickly breast feed but last week 1 time fed with formulae.
It depends!: The frequency, color and consistency of normal infant stools vary a lot. Green is not abnormal. Mucous can reflect inflammation, as in bacterial stool infection or an allergic problem. If your baby's stools became more frequent and contained mucous only after a bottle of formula, it may be a milk protein allergy. If the baby is feeding and acting well, i'd keep nursing and talk to the doctor.
3 month old baby change in bowel movement suddenly.. ..The color is yellowish and seedy. He is pooping after every feeding but just a little. Formula?
Infant stools: Yellow, seedy, nonbloody stools are normal in a formula fed infant. Changing from breast to formula, or changing from one formula to another can cause changes in stool frequency and appearance. Sudden changes in stools, if associated with irritability, bloody stools, vomiting, lethargy or any other symptom of illness should be evaluated prompty.
Yes.: Infants this young can certainly teeth. However, if they're having a high fever or very irritable or not eating, they should be seen by their regular doctor. At 3 months of age, their immune system is still immature and we wouldn't want to miss an infection that was blamed on teething.See 2 more doctor answers

I changed the formula on my 3month old from enfamil infant to enfamil a.R he passes stools 5 times a day now: yellow thicker w/ mucus is that normal?
Yes: The difference between the two formulas is that the ar contains a rice starch to "thicken" the formula a bit so that the baby doesn't spit up as much. This can increase fiber content in the stool, making the stools a bit thicker. 5 poops a day for a 3 month old is totally normal. Babies poop a lot!

Missing information: To get the best out of Healthtap you need to provide a enough information for someone to provide an answer. You have not described why you think the baby is sick, status of temperature, feeding activity, etc. Without this info we cannot help. You are welcome to start over. Your questions are not linked, so each must tell the full story.See 1 more doctor answer
Where: Where was it measured and why were you measuring it. Regardless of the temperature, if your baby seems sick have him/her seen. To get an accurate temperature at this age, a rectal temperature is best.
Formula amount: 6 ounces every 3-4 hours. Good rule is the average amount is the baby's age in months plus 3 ounces every 3-4 hours.
