Safe to still breastfeed baby after getting paint on hands while painting a room in our house (washed hands before nursing)?

Baby is 8 months biting mother when nursing but keeps refusing bottle . Baby is underweight(10 percentile)  best way to wean a baby who will not take a bottle but needs nutrition ?

So, the baby in question appears to have other issues, leading to questions such as: is the baby truly too small, why is the baby too small, why won't the baby take a bottle, etc... In such cases, the parents have to see the doctor a few times and work together to keep the baby growing. ...Read more
