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

Green snotty newborn. 4 weeks old.

Green snotty newborn. 4 weeks old.

Nasal wash: At 4 weeks the primary cause of nasal color is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, detergent or cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants from babies life helps more in the long run. ...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

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

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

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

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

My baby girl is 7 week old she is on formula feed (nan pro 1 ).How much oz she needs? She is taking 120 ml every 3 to 4 hours

My baby girl is 7 week old she is on formula feed (nan pro 1 ).How much oz she needs? She is taking 120 ml every 3 to 4 hours

About right: Most babies under 2 months old will drink about 4 oz per feeding (120ml). After 2 months old, they may increase the feeding amount gradually, while also sleeping a bit longer. I recommend increasing by 1/2 oz (15ml) per feeding if your child still seems hungry after a feeding. Don't rush to increase to 8 oz (240ml), but go up a little at a time to prevent overfeeding. ...Read more

My 4 week formula fed baby has had watery green blowout diarrhea? What's wrong?

Change the milk: If your newborn is drinking a cow milk formula, then the milk may be the culprit. If this is a chronic problem review the symptoms with your doctor as well as the infant's weight. Another possibility is a virus which will resolve but keep your infant hydrated and review the symptoms with your doctor. ...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 give 1oz water (boiled for 5mins) to 7 weeks old baby after every feeding ? She is breast fed.

Can I give 1oz  water (boiled for 5mins) to 7 weeks old baby after every feeding ? She is breast fed.

No that's too much: Water. Since water dosen't have a lot of salts we generally like to limit it to an ounce for the day. Too much water can dilute the salts in her blood and cause seizures. Water is ok to use in diet once baby is regularly eating solids. ...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

Baby weighed 3.770 at birth (75th percentile) and weighs 6.340 at 4 months (20th percentile). Exclusively breastfed. Should i be concerned? Pees a lot

Maybe: Is your pediatrician concerned? Some women can grow a big baby in utero and once born may drop a little because of genetics. Others may not be getting enough calories and that is why the drop. Discuss with your doctor...Do not quit breast feeding...It may simply be time to introduce more calories through food. ...Read more
