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
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
He has tears..: ...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too. Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much. ...Read more
Progesterone-only: The mini-pill (pop) is an oral contraceptive taken daily without any breaks. It's different to the combined pill as it only contains one hormone, thus it is a progestogen only pill ... It does not carry risk of thromboembolism; it does not inhibit lactation - so can use when breast feeding. ...Read more
