How do I keep 3 month old baby from dislodging NG feeding tube?

How do I keep 3 month old baby from dislodging NG feeding tube?

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 more

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? Im 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. ...Read more

Have a 3 month old baby, formula feed & has had 15 dirty diaper between 2 days. Is that normal?

Have a 3 month old baby, formula feed & has had 15 dirty diaper between 2 days. Is that normal?

I assume: you mean by "dirty diaper" diapers containing stool. 7 or 8 stools per day may not be unusual, but if it is a big change from previously, you should take your baby to her pediatrician. If she is making fewer urine soaked diapers, it could mean she's dehydrated and needs prompt evaluation. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

3 month old baby doing green potty with mucus 4 times day after .Strickly breast feed but last week 1 time fed with formulae.

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. ...Read more
