3mos baby often straining, and just now passing greenish liquid stool with mucus and foamy. Only drink breast milk. Should I concern?

Not particularly: What you consider straining may just be baby dealing with the issue at hand. Weak belly muscles, needing to poop without sitting upright where gravity helps, and making any sound they want because they don't care what they sound like. Sounds pretty normal. ...Read more

Weaning: If your baby is nursing with no problem, then this should work. Add a very small amount of breast milk to teh gentlease. Wait a few days and add more. Repeat this process.

Hi when I drink milk I get chest pain?

Hi when I drink milk I get chest pain?

If chest pain occurs: Very quickly, would be c/w esophagus issues/esophageal spasms as part of your response to what you are swallowing. This can occur with anything. Coordination of esophageal muscles (like rest of body) to achieve the peristaltic swallowing response is complex & coordinated by mind/brain. Internalized past history, no matter how seemingly hidden, always plays a role. Yet, Hx offered was very limited. ...Read more

Is drinking a lot of soy beans milk make my boobs bigger? Is there anyway to enlarge em without having to eat a lot?

Is drinking a lot of soy beans milk make my boobs bigger? Is there anyway to enlarge em without having to eat a lot?

Yes, but...: Drinking a lot of milk will make the boobs bigger because the overall fat in the body will increase and increase. The more body fat, the more fat in the boobs. It's the calories from the sugar, fat, and protein in milk... Regardless of the kind of milk. That means it's not those internet stories of hormones in soymilk or other foods and drinks that will be making everything (everything) bigger. ...Read more

Is it bad to drink your own breast milk?

Is it bad to drink your own breast milk?

No: Breast milk is very nutritious, and excellent for babies, so will be of no harm to adults (in small amounts). Breast milk is too rich, so will give an adult too much animal fat (yes, we are animals) and many extra calories. Most moms with excess breast milk just freeze it for use later when their babies are weaned off the breast, but surely some frozen milk gets wasted (thrown away). ...Read more

Can husband drink milk produced in breast of her wife by stimulating the breast. IS it baleful for health?

Can husband drink milk produced in breast of her wife by stimulating the breast. IS it baleful for health?

No problem, unless..: Unless a mom has too little milk, it doesn't matter at all that somebody else (such as a twin sibling or another person) is drinking some of the milk. The breasts will make more. So, as long as the baby is well-fed and happily growing, mom is fine to share her breast milk. However, breast milk is very rich with lots of milkfat, so it may not be healthy for adult humans to drink too much of it. ...Read more

Can I safely drink breast milk for fun?

Can I safely drink breast milk for fun?

Sure.: If you are not a nursing infant then you don't really require the nutritional composition of breast milk, but it's certainly not dangerous. It has a lot of fat, and antibodies/nutrients - but for a healthy, immunocompetent adult I don't think drinking breast milk is necessary for optimal nutrition. It's safe, just a little weird, ;-).
