Should my baby poop after every feeding?

Should my baby poop after every feeding?

No: Stooling patterns for infants are very different from adults. Some newborns poop after every feed (yes that can mean 8 times a day!). Some breastfed babies, however, absorb all the nutrients in the milk and can go up to a week without a poopey diaper. As long as your baby is gaining weight well, his stool is soft, there's no blood in the diaper and the stool isn't a white color its probably ok. ...Read more

New born hates tummy time. She's 3 weeks old. I can only put her on her stomach during supervised naps and burping. Sometimes when I carry her. Help!

New born hates tummy time. She's 3 weeks old. I can only put her on her stomach during supervised naps and burping. Sometimes when I carry her. Help!

Short periods: Try putting her on her tummy on a firm surface for short periods while she's awake. Get down in front of her, so she needs to raise her head slightly to see you. Talk with her or play with her. Use a bright toy for her to look up at. When she starts getting fussy, you can change her position, but keep trying several times a day. She'll start to get used to it and enjoy it more. ...Read more

My 6 week old baby is spitting up clear liquid and sometimes milk few hours after feeding also cries like in pain and uncomfortable ?

Sounds like it could: be reflux,caused by the floppy valve between the stomach and esophagus which allows fluids and acid to come back up.This is very common in babies and is usually outgrown by the end of the first year of life,if not before.It is a benign condition as long as your baby is gaining weight. However,since your baby seems to be in pain,you should discuss it with his/her doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more

How much milk will my baby need after he has started eating solids?

How much milk will my baby need after he has started eating solids?

Variable: This is variable but a common question. Generally infants don't need more than 32 oz of milk per day and this will decrease depending on how much food the infant eats. At a year many infants are taking about 15-20 oz per day in my experience. Some infants will eat more food than others but all will naturally adjust milk intake dependent on food intake. ...Read more

A kid that age is growing fast and breast milk or formula offer a better blend of nutrients than any pablum.Waiting until 6 mo and limiting pablum amounts can assure better growth. ...Read more
