4 month old baby afraid to poop?

4 month old baby afraid to poop?

Other causes: A four month old does not have bowel control where he is afraid to poop. You dont mention it, but if you are breast feeding an infant can go as long as a week without pooping and is within the realm of normality. If he is on f ormula he maybe constipated by too much formula. ...Read more

Can 4 week old baby have juice?

Can 4 week old baby have juice?

I wouldn't: Juices are an oversold product that provides plenty of sugar & sweet stimulus to babies. They may program the brain to crave it in excess over a lifetime,resulting in obesity.Apple in the form of a sauce/orange as a wedge are less processed & give a blend of protein and fiber that are better for babies but after 6 months. Juices are basically like giving a kid a coke. ...Read more

Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

No: Generally, once an infant starts to sleep through the night (around 2 months) it is not necessary to wake the baby up to feed him/her, assuming the baby feeds well during the day, is wetting several diapers a day, appears healthy, and is growing well. It is important not to interrupt a healthy baby's sleep/wake cycle. ...Read more

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

How long should baby feed from breast per feed? Baby 1 week old. I feel like i just feed her for 5, 10 minutes every 2 hrs. Want to excl. Breastfeed

How long should baby feed from breast per feed? Baby 1 week old. I feel like i just feed her for 5, 10 minutes every 2 hrs. Want to excl. Breastfeed

That's fine: In nature, babies eat whenever they are hungry. If a young baby nurses for 5-10 minutes on each breast, and then happily sleeps a couple of hours, that is fine... As long as the baby is growing. After the first week of life, a baby will grow about 1 ounce per day for a few weeks. If worried about not having enough milk, mom and baby can just see the pediatrician to check on the weight and feeding. ...Read more

5 week old baby is constantly hungry. I've been breastfeeding him all day between 2 hour interval formula feeding.

Hungry baby: First of all do you have enough breast milk. Give your baby the breast. After20-30 minutes, if he takes more than 1-2 ounces you dont have enough breast milk. Secondly are you burping frequently, and third at five weeks he may have colic, in which case swaddle him or put him in a swing after feeding. ...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

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

Can I take hairfinity vitamins while breast feeding my 10 month old baby?

Can I take hairfinity vitamins while breast feeding my 10 month old baby?

Overall the opinion: is No you do not need to be taking Hair vitamins while you are lactating, though any harmful effects on the baby is not immediately known. It IS known that any vitamins you take while breastfeeding WILL be transferred to the baby, especially the fat soluble ones (ADEK). Most women grow hair faster while they are pregnant or lactating anyway as part of the natural effects of progesterone. ...Read more

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

Can i give my 4 month old baby a rice cerelac ?

Can i give my 4 month old baby a rice cerelac ?

Solids ok at 4-6 mo: Most infants thrive on exclusively breast or formula feeding until at least 4 months, and many are very content until almost 6 months. At that time, it is a good idea to start with cereal, either rice or oatmeal that is iron fortified, in addition to the milk feedings. esp if your infant has been sleeping through the night and now is starting night wakings, a late afternoon supplement works well. ...Read more

Can i nurse my 10 months old baby while i'm pregnant? (i'm 32 weeks)

Can i nurse my 10 months old baby while i'm pregnant? (i'm 32 weeks)

Yes but: You may want to look for signs baby is ready to wean. If baby makes short work of feedings, & or you begin chasing baby around to do a feed, you s/he may be ready. If baby still craves the nurturing & lingers, i see no reason you can't overlap the babies. I would avoid abruptly stopping baby 1 when #2 comes as there will already be some displacement fear. Good luck. ...Read more

Is full cream milk suitable for 4 month old baby?

Is full cream milk suitable for 4 month old baby?

Too young: A 4 month old baby is too young for any kind of milk that is not breast milk or a baby formula created for babies. The combination of nutrients in cow milk or other kinds of milk is not balanced correctly for young babies. In the U.S., babies don't start drinking cow milk until reaching age 1 year. ...Read more

Baby 4 weeks old with yellow mucus for 4 days and bringing up milk formula fed should I see doctor?

Baby 4 weeks old with yellow mucus for 4 days and bringing up milk formula fed should I see doctor?

Probably see doc: In this case, it may be time to see the doctor. Any newborn with symptoms that affect their calorie intake should be evaluated to make sure they are getting enough calories. You may try suctioning his/her nose with a nose freida or bulb syringe to help breathing since newborns are obligate nose breathers. Your baby may have reflux which in some cases may need treatment. ...Read more

My 5 months baby still not pooping for 2 days now she's a breast feeding baby.

My 5 months baby still not pooping for 2 days now  she's a breast feeding baby.

Common finding: Breast babies can do a little smear every feed or a onsie filler every 7-10 days. Breast milk is a well designed food source compared to formula, where more debris is left over after processing. Bottle babies usually go at least daily if not more often. If it is soft when they go it is considered ok, even if delayed. ...Read more
