Baby Bottle Feeding Throat Noise Or Lung
My 7 month old baby not feeding milk throigh bottle where as feeding through breast.is it worrisome? other wise eating solids well.
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Can a 6w baby choke on spit up or reflux? She coughs after swallowing and sometimes seems to gasp for air. She clears her throat even while sleeping.
Yes: This can be a serious condition, and yes, a baby can choke from reflux material. Raise head of crib/bassinette slightly and keep upright after feeds. Also, I would suggest you ask her pediatrician about a swallow study, where they actually watch with special formula as she feeds and swallows to see if any is going into her lungs and the whole swallowing mechanism is working right. ...Read more
Can I nurse my baby when she gets hungry in between feedings, in addition to bottle feeding her pumped breast milk? Or is that feeding her too much?
Nurture vs nutrient: Don't assume that willingness to latch & feed every hour is necessary hunger. You can unwittingly create a snacking baby if you assume every mouthing or rooting response is a need to feed. Babies can do this for the comfort. Hunger is an empty stomach. ...Read more
3 months old baby with bronchiolitis receiving albuterol+nebulizer therapies makes high pitch stridor-like when laughing or crying. NOT all the time.
Croup?: Bronchiolitis is a lower airway disease that is sometimes treated with bronchodilators such as albuterol. Stridor develops with inflammation of structures much higher up, and is common with Croup. Most children with croup do not wheeze unless they are predisposed to doing so. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
10 mo son with aspiration; we use simply thick. Trying slow transition to thins. Now has increased coughing and spit-up between feedings (but not during feeding). Is he coughing up aspirated liquid?
Infant case: difficulty breathing, chocking, not feeding well, fever last week, sleepy, whistle noise when breathing no secretion. What could it be?
Needs immediate care: Your description of your child worries me. At that age, he may have inhaled a foreign body into his lungs, he could have an infection, an asthma attack - so many possibilities. Also, are immunizations up-to-date? Concerned about whooping cough (pertussis) with this history. This should not wait the weekend - he needs to be evaluated today! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When to take 5m old to the dr? Productive coughx5 days, watery/red eyes, and snoring. No fever- acting, eating fine. Bottle fed breastmilk, formula.
Fever or concern: If your baby has a cough, but is eating and sleeping well, doesn't have a fever over 101, and doesn't have other symptoms, you can usually watch him for a few days. Give him extra fluids, clean his nose with saline and a suction bulb, and run a cool mist humidifier. If he is running fever, acting sicker, or you are concerned, have him checked by your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have very big nipple. It makes latching difficult. Baby feeds over an hour then wakes up soon to feed. Milk is enough (4 oz) when pump. Pacifier?
Work on feeds: More than 10 minutes on a side will only gain baby 5% more milk, so if baby stays this long it may delay movement of milk forward. I would not feed baby any sooner than 2 hours from the last feed & not assume that their sucking behavior is hunger. Br is feeding + pleasure of lip stimulation + nurturing.Other forms of oral stimulation like a pacifier can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 wk old with GERD. When nursed she continuously vomits the breast milk for over an hour. When given formula, no vomiting or spit up. Help!
How can I avoid gas traped in my baby's stomach during feeding. It makes her uncomfortable. She is feeding on both breast and formula milk (nan 1).
Can milk based formula cause baby to become chesty and cough?Baby has rattling in chest and cough for two weeks.Tried soy formula but baby gags on it.
Maybe: Drinking milk in a moving car is not a problem. But, being in a car seat for several hours, can lead to gas pains. Allowing the baby to lie on its stomach and patting its back after traveling will help it to pass the gas. ...Read more
8 month baby - running nose, no temp, full dirty nappies, cough and teething? Is it all connected to her teething?
Might not: It looks like your child might have a viral upper respiratory infection presenting with congestion, runny nose, then loose stool or even diarrhea. Make sure he or she gets plenty of fluid or water and give him/her baby tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil if fevers develop. Symptoms might last for a week or so. Bring your child to see a doctor if symptoms do not improve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
19 months baby, fluctuating fever - 36 to 38. Has stopped coughing. 20 breaths per minute. Stuffy nose causing snoring. Teething. Can it be pneumonia?
Possibly: The normal respiratory rate makes pneumonia unlikely. With fever it would normally rise by 5-10 breaths per minute but these would still be within the normal range for age. An exam would determine if any other studies would be needed to confirm or exclude this diagnosis. I find your numbers don't support that label. ...Read more
Babies that are on a bottle feeding aren't stronger? Aren't healthier? Im bottle feeding should I be worry or feel guilty?
Relative issue: Breast fed infants, even if breast fed for a few weeks, seem to have better life outcomes than those started on the bottle initially.There are also living immune factors that breast milk has that reduce some of babies illnesses.That said, there has been tremendous improvements in formulas in the past 3 decades and babies thrive. I think mom's have to do whatever it takes and not accept guilt for it. ...Read more

My 4 month baby stool color is grey and he is bottle feeding and test report showing candida yeast. Please suggest treatment & what are the reasons ?
Bottle feeding: Breastfeeding is best for your baby but if you cannot breastfeed, bottle feeding with an infant formula is acceptable. It can be harmful if the bottle is propped up to feed (choking/aspiration), if the milk is old or if the baby is falling asleep with the bottle in their mouth (cavaties). There are other reasons the bottle may or may not be safe but these are the main ones. ...Read more
Various opinions: Some believe nipple confusion is the main problem switching back and forth in feeding method. Babies have to put a little more work into getting the milk to drop down from the breast vs suckling a bottle. I have lots of parents who use both methods and rarely have I seen true nipple confusion. http://www.webmd.com/parenting/baby/your-babys-feeding-breast-vs-bottle ...Read more

Infant feeding: Lentil is an excellent source of fiber and nutritious as well. It is harder to digest especially by a 4 mo. Current thinking is to start solid foods that are nutritious and easy to digest. Cereal is not necessarily the first food to give now. It has been found that meat and /or vegetables are good to start with especially when baby is breastfed. The lentil caused the way her stools came out. ...Read more
Depends on the child: Some kids need more nurturing than others and will seek out the cuddle time at the breast well into the 2nd yr. If your infant needs cuddle time, do as long as desired. When kids start to walk, they may loose interest in cuddle time. When you have to chase them down to bf its time to quit. Bottles are easy, when baby will take well from a hard spout sippy cup start the wean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Likely sampling issu: A random blood glucose will always be affected by sampling technique, which can be hard in infants. Any foreign material on the skin surface may skew the results & falsely elevate them. If taken soon after a feed i could see it going up to the 130's. If concerned see your dr & have a venous sample tested. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
