4 Month Old Baby Breastfeeding Schedule
My four month old baby is on combination feeding .formula feeds(enfamil) 4 ounces three or four times a day plus breast feed is it too much?
Formula &breast fed: The amount of formula your baby is getting is not too much, I can't judge how much he gets from breast feeding, if the baby is gaining weight within the expected range, being content & happy then you're on the right track. Your pediatrician will discuss the baby's growth during every well visit. You can discuss your concerns with him. Good luck, enjoy your bundle of joy. ...Read more

My wife is slightly overweight. She's breastfeeding a 4-month old baby that she delivered by cs. She eats so much all bcos she claims she must do so.
Breastfeeding and my 4 month old baby boy hasn't had a stool movement in 2 days. Should i worry? What should I do? I've tried prune juice to help.
Breast or formula ?: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read more
Both.: In the beginning, you should feed on demand - and more often - to help establish milk production. Once you and your baby have your technical skills down, it is a good idea to start to spread out your feeding to every 2-3 hours, gradually if needed, or you may find yourself with a baby who sips...very frequently. Feeding on demand is another model that works - find which fits best for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At night times my 12 weeks old infant will not wake up to breast feed, 5 hours gap ll b there for last breastfeed. Any problem to baby's nutition?
Not if baby is fine: We (doctors, moms, dads, neighbors, etc.) all want babies to sleep through the night by the time they are 3 months old. Parents with babies who sleep through the night are lucky parents. As long as a baby is growing fine on his measurements at the check-ups, and is healthy, parents don't need to wake up a sleeping baby at night. ...Read more
Yes: Cpx is very worrisome in the first weeks of a newborns life, but less so later. You were likely contagious for 24-48 hrs before you started breaking out, and baby is already exposed enough to get the disease.Incubation for baby would be 10-21 days, depending on exposure. Consult with babies doc if baby develops symptoms to see if meds will help him/her. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 4 month old baby girl strains a lot while passing stools. She is on breastfeed and once on formula feed. Stools are not very dry though.
It is common: It is normal and very common for parents to complain about it. Keep breast feeding. Normal range for stooling varies. It is normal to have one bowel movement once every 2-3 days and also every time when you feed her, especially if you breast feed as long as there is no vomiting and baby eats well. You can try putting her on her tummy; remember though only when she is awake and you watching her. ...Read more

My baby is in his month six & doctor did not want to give him infant formula, can i continue breastfeeding him while fasting in ramdan now?
Breastfeeding/fastin: I am Jewish not Muslim. In Judiasm respect for preserving life is considered so high that you are allowed to break almost any commandment in order to preserve a life. If you came to me as a Jewess and I was your Rabbi, I would advice you to eat and breastfeed. But you should talk to your Imam and to Allah. That should be your guide. Happy Ramadan! ...Read more
