When can we introduce our 3 month old baby to the bottle feeding? We fear that bottle feeding might bring the chances for infection. Plz suggest

Now: You can introduce a bottle as soon as breast feeding is well established- i usually recommend at about one month of age. Its helpful if someone other than mom feeds the baby the bottle and if mom leaves the house so the baby won't cry to nurse instead! to decrease chance of infection make sure you clean and sterilize (in boiling water) the bottle equipment. Clean after each use. ...Read more

Is exposure to someone vaccinated with the shingles vaccine harmful to babies?

Is exposure to someone vaccinated with the shingles vaccine harmful to babies?

Just say no: The shingles vaccine uses a live virus, so it can shed, causing them to possibly get chickenpox from you. Merck says at http://www.Merck.Com/product/usa/pi_circ… "transmission of vaccine virus may occur rarely between vacinees and susceptible contacts" babies are just developing their immunity, so they may be at more risk. The disease is usually better tolerated in kids though. ...Read more

Is there any validity to the comment " exposing baby to sickness builds their immune system"? I had a premmie baby who starts daycare soon very skepti

Yes: That and vaccines is how we all develop our immune resistance. In the pre-daycare world, kids had the same result with family gatherings or church nursery.By the time of school entry, most dropped illness frequency from 5-7/yr to 3-5. Premis are a diverse group.Some have no special needs as they approach day care and others may have issues.Your doc should guide you on specifics. ...Read more

Delay until 6mo: Solid foods were once used to make up for deficiencies in home made milk formula used in the 50's to 80's.A return to breast FDG & modern formulas changed the value of solids from nutrition, to a pathway to teach baby to eat & transition to table foods.Waiting until 6m allows baby to sit & participate in a feeding, much as the will when older.Start with a few tablespoons as a paste. ...Read more

Once.: It only takes once, if you're having sex at the right time of the month, and if the sperm and the egg are viable and in good condition. Sometimes the timing is off, or there are problems with nutrition or hormones that make conception difficult; but if everything is ok , as little as one ejaculation can result in a pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Baby's at risk: Maternal antibody passed during pregnancy will give 3-6 months of variable protection.The BF antibody is mostly IGA and provides some nonspecific protection but not enough to be protective. Some IGG comes across but the effect is minimal.Timing of the exposure to breakout as 10-21 days.Discuss with your doc if s/he thinks meds would help if infected.

When can we give foods other than breast milk to our new born baby?

When can we give foods other than breast milk to our new born baby?

Wait until sitting: Breast milk or formula can provide all the needed nutrition for the first year. However, we have an expectation that kids will begin sitting at the table at a year & experiencing the culture of communal feeding.Introduction of solids is thus more cultural in timing than need. Waiting until 6 mo allows them to be sitting & a participant in the meal, rather than a passive victim of the process. ...Read more
