Recently, I have read in an article that consuming milk and milk products may cause cancer due the use of artificial cattle feeding. Is that true? Is it possible to avoid milk products completely? Please provide your valuable suggestions!
Not cancer forming: milk products not associated with the development of cancer. Cattle feed which may contain hormone is not in a high enough level to produce side effects which on their own would not be related to cancer, but might induce fibrocystic disease of breast.

Nephew only gained 1 lb since born hes 4 months- feeding a lot but not gaining , what could be wrong?
Failure to Thrive: Your nephew needs to be evaluated by his pediatrician asap, will definitely need testing to find out the cause e.G congenital, metabolic etc. Etc.

When baby asks: Simple answer really... When baby asks. Breastfeeding is supposed to be on demand. On average it should be every 2-3 hours but babies cluster feed at times, especially in the middle of the night (when you breastfeeding hormone peaks). Then it may be every 1-2 hours for a bit.
