Will bottles hurt my child's teeth?

Will bottles hurt my child's teeth?

Start weaning at 1: Start weaning the bottle at 1 year or a little before. Once your child is drinking cow's milk always put the milk in a cup, not bottle. Then, just use bottles for water- typically this helps the weaning process go faster. Also, to protect your child's teeth never put them to bed with a bottle. The sugars from the milk can cause cavities. ...Read more

What baby formula for gassy babies taste best to breastmilk?

Are pacifiers bad for a baby's teeth?

Are pacifiers bad for a baby's teeth?

Yes and no: Pacifier by itself won't harm teeth, but if they are coated with sweets first (some parents do that) then they can certainly cause cavities. They often would move teeth, and sometimes pacifier use can change the shape of the baby's palate bone. Stopping use can often lead to improvement, but sometimes orthodontics would be needed to get the bone and teeth back in place ...Read more

My niece is almost 4 months and is teething is it safe to give a baby her age Oragel teething gel?

Treatment overratted: Teething is a subject that gets many parents very anxious. I am of the opinion that over the counter meds treat parents more than the infant. I recommend cold teething pacifiers or toys. Teething is universally benign and may only require gum massage or teething toys-not meds. ...Read more

Can breast milk make my baby fussy?

Can breast milk make my baby fussy?

No: Breast milk is warm and tastes yummy to a baby. So, breast milk should not make a baby fussy. If a baby drinking from the breast seems fussy, but drinking formula seems fine, then the baby might be impatient (try feeding breast milk from a bottle to see what happens). On the other hand, a young baby might fuss on the breast when the let-down occurs because the milk is coming too fast! ...Read more

Anything that contains Benzocaine can precipitate a rare but dangerous reaction called methemoglobinemia. http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm306062.htm. ...Read more

My son is 4 months old. Can i skip cereal but still formula feed him and give him stage 1 gerber baby food?

Sure, but....: A well rounded diet would include the cereal, which in baby food is fortified with iron, something infants need in their diets. Also, encourage you talk to pediatrician about timing of solids at 4 months. Some evidence waiting until 6 months may have advantages the most important thing you are already doing -continuing breast milk or formula, which is the cornerstone of your infants diet right now. ...Read more
