3 Month Old Baby Feeding Schedule
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal variation: The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile. It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea or breast feeding may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner. ...Read more

Spit up versus vomit: Quite normal for many babies to spit up small amounts of milk/formula after feeding. Should be white & not green which could be sign of intestinal obstruction.

Projectile vomiting is another matter & could indicate presence of pyloric stenosis. Can be diagnosed sonographically. ...Read more
Baby 3 months old. Why has my bottle-fed baby started to refuse the bottle? Started since 2month old
Only liquid food: A 3-month old baby eats only liquid food, called breast milk. If for some reason, the mother cannot produce breast milk, she can feed the baby a liquid food called baby formula. Solid foods, such as rice cereal mixed with formula or mixed with water, can be started at age 6 months... unless there is a special reason the doctor is asking for early use of rice cereal (such as in refluxing babies). ...Read more
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. ...Read more
My 12 weeks baby nurses for 10-15min max every 3 hours. Born 3kg now 5.1kg. Is she feeding enough? Refuses the bottle completely
Depends: Straining or irregular stooling doen not mean constipation.The nb breast fed kid may go 7-10 days without a stool or poo a little at each meal.As long as it is soft, i don't consider that constipation.

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Telogen effluvium: Sudden apparent hair loss without the creation of bald spots usually represents a normal periodic process called telogen effluvium. This tends to resolve spontaneously before anyone notices any thinning of the hair (you usually just see a lot in the shower drain). If others notice that your hair is thinning, however, then you may want to consult your doctor. ...Read more
My month old baby keeps throwing up after every feeding. What could be wrong? Breastfeed during the day, 2 bottles of 2oz newborn formula at night.

Make sure, when feeding, head 45 degree upright, a good seal while nursing, no gap, so that baby doesn't swallow air. Burp up halfway and after feeding, keep baby upright for 1/2 hour.

Thicken Feeds: You can try thickening the feeding with one teasoon of rice cereal per ounce of formula, feed the baby just a smaller feeding and more often, elevate the head of the bed, and keep him upright between feedings as much as possible. If he is gaining weight, happy and not having painful feedings, I'd try these simple measures. Be sure and make your four month appt with his pediatrician! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Gum?: It's not uncommon for stools to undergo changes, from mustard, to "pudding" to thick peanut butter. I'm not sure what you mean by "gum", but stools can thicken up somewhat over this time. Sometimes there can be mucous and some temporary changes with viral illnesses or other factors. If the stools are truly irregular, bring one in to have it looked at. ...Read more
