Hair fall for a breastfeeding mother of 3 months n 3 weeks old child?

Hair fall for a breastfeeding mother of 3 months n 3 weeks old child?

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

3 months old baby with green pooping?

3 months old baby with green pooping?

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

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

Is vomiting of my 3 weeks baby after breastfeed normal.

Is vomiting of my 3 weeks baby after breastfeed normal.

Vomiting in 3wk old: If it is just a little spitting up, it is ok, if the baby is gaining weight, that a good sign, try to burp your baby frequently during feeding, keep the baby in upright potion for few minutes, try not to over feed, or feed too soon, if it is excessive or projectile, no weight gain, take the baby to your pediatrician or ER. Good luck , enjoy your bundle of joy. ...Read more

Is ibprufen same during breastfeeding a 3 months old baby?

Is ibprufen same during breastfeeding a 3 months old baby?

Good to go: Ibuprofen is the analgesic, or pain medication, of choice while breastfeeding. It has a very low excretion level into breastmilk, a very short half life and is safe in much higher levels than are found in breastmilk. You should be just fine using it during breastfeeding. ...Read more

Can i still give my 3 month baby enfamil newborn formula til shes 1 year old?

Yes: that's perfectly appropriate. But as she begins to take more and more calories from her solids, starting at 6 months, the amount of nutrition she will get from her enfamil formula will be relatively less. ...Read more

Son 3 month old hc 3 weeks ago 16.75 tonight 16.88 should I be worried?

Son 3 month old hc 3 weeks ago 16.75 tonight  16.88 should I be worried?

Re measure : Hc isn't an easy measurement to obtain with a squirming baby. It has to be done in a certain way. Unless the baby has a known medical/neurological problem my recommendation is to make sure the hc is confirmed by the baby's doctor at the 4 month well check. We see the same problem with length measurements, particularly with the normally imprecise method of the "table paper & pencil" length. ...Read more

A week and half ago doc measured baby at 33 weeks 6 days. Ultrasound shows 3 days ago 33 3 days. Is baby growing?

A week and half ago doc measured baby at 33 weeks 6 days. Ultrasound shows 3 days ago 33 3 days. Is baby growing?

Hard to say...: Ultrasound measurements for growth in the third trimester can be off as much as 3 weeks. A week-and-a-half isn't enough time to notice a large change in the baby's growth and results can be confusing. It may not be possible to know for certain if the baby is growing in this short time-frame. You may need additional ultrasounds to know if the baby is growing appropriately or not. ...Read more

My 3 month old baby having gum in stools ?

My 3 month old baby having gum in stools ?

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

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

Why does my 3 week old son frequently vomits milk formula after feeding?

Why does my 3 week old son frequently vomits milk formula after feeding?

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. Helped by vigorous burping. Larger volumes can be associated with gastric reflux, helped by keeping baby tilted head up. Projectile vomiting is another matter & could indicate presence of pyloric stenosis. Can be diagnosed sonographically. ...Read more

My 3 week old baby always coughs right after she's finished nursing.. Why?

My 3 week old baby  always coughs right after she's finished nursing.. Why?

Likely normal: Babies have the remarkable ability to breathe and swallow at the same time. So right after feeding she may be inhaling a little milk and sputtering a bit. That' s fine, and you can ignore it. However, if she's getting very fussy and irritable, reflux is also a possibility. ...Read more

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 10ozs 34+5 weeks will she turn in 3 weeks?

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 10ozs 34+5 weeks will she turn in 3 weeks?

Most likely: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read more

Why would my 3 week old breastfed baby be constipated?

Why would my 3 week old breastfed baby be constipated?

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. If the kid is putting out dry rabbit pellets or stool bigger than your finger you can sometimes tease a stool out using vasaline on a q-tip inserted to the length of the cotton & worked around. ...Read more

Can a baby at 3 months old see color?

Can a baby at 3 months old see color?

Yes, but...: Nobody knows how well a 3-month old baby sees colors. Eye doctors believe that babies can see colors pretty well by 5 months of age, but that doesn't happen suddenly. Instead, babies likely see colors better each week, as their vision systems mature. Of course, babies can't tell us what they see, so nobody knows for sure what babies see when they look around. ...Read more
