At What Age Can You Stop Warming Up A Bottle For A Baby
Is it possible a portable heater could make my nursery a little too humid & warm, causing my babies to get sick more easily?
Unlikely: Heaters will actually dry out a room, not make it humid. Often, the humidity can drop 10% or more in a room with a heater compared to the rest of the house. A simple humidity gauge can help you monitor the situation. Many run on button batteries and can register rapid change in humidity. The preferred humidity within a kid space runs 40-45%.Above 50% you increase dust mites, below 30% they cough. ...Read more
What is the best way to clean an infant (1~12 month)? What I do now is take off her clothes first, then dip into a baby tub filled with warm water.
Bath time can be fun: You can put her in a partially reclining baby tub or other baby bath device (some even come with safety belts!), and using a baby or sensitive skin cleanser and a washcloth, bathe her all over, then rinse all over. Babies do fine with only a few baths each week. Make bath time fun by talking or singing to her entertaining her with bath toys. ...Read more

Using breastmilk that is frozen in ice cube trays to place in bottle, what is the best/fastest way to warm it up for baby? Would a bottle warmer work?
Why warm it?: Freezing breast milk inactivates the benificial immunoglobulin in the milk, it reamins balanced and good nutrrition, but not as good as the fresh stuff. Some babies will actually enjuy a chilled feed and I don' see any reason to warm it.

I am waking up in the night with a very cold feeling along with tingling in my head. Thought I was cold, warming up doesn't stop it. Recent changes: quit smoking and Celebrex (celecoxib). Only occurs at night.
If I take a bottle of expressed breast milk out of fridge and warm it up, feed to baby, and then have leftovers., is it okay to reuse? Back in fridge?
Is Not Safe: Re-use of bottled breast milk from a prior feeding is not considered a safe practice. There is risk of bacterial contamination with serious consequences in babies. Additionally, deterioration of beneficial nutrients occurs. To eliminate waste, add to bottle normal amount of milk your baby consumes plus 1-2 oz extra to allow for increase in appetite as baby grows & day-to-day hunger patterns. ...Read more

Boosters are then used until 57" tall ...Read more
Clean versus sterile: All dishes, cups, and silverware should always be 'sterile' or at least cleaned in hot water with soap. No eating should be done, regardless of age, from unclean dishes, glasses or silverware. I do not understand the question.
