Better: Hands down - breast feeding is better. Human milk is designed for human babies. Formula is cow's milk, and while the formula companies have tried to get it to be the best it can, it's design is for baby cows, not humans. It has none of the protective antibodies breast milk does to protect baby from disease in the first months. And breast feeding protects mom from breast cancer and helps lose weight. ...Read more

Breast Feeding: It is better to not drink at all while you are breast feeding. If you do decide to use alcohol, it depends on the amount your drink, and when you stop. Small amounts can be out of your system in hours. Larger amounts will take 6 or more hours. Negligible alcohol becomes part of the breast milk, so pumping and discarding is not recommended (american academy of pediatrics). ...Read more
Not Recommended: Not much is absorbed from Salonpas patches. Minimal amount of Salicylate is absorbed from the skin and theoretically can cause Reye's syndrome. It is rare and I have not seen one.

No: Breastfeeding does demand a lot of your body (after all you have to share your nutrition with someone else), but as long as you're eating healthy foods and enough of them you should be fine.

Three basic plans: Cold turkey: bind yourself & send baby to others to bottle feed until they will for you. (painful & frustrating for both but some do ok.) gradual: drop a feeding every day or two, using bottle instead. At some point body drops supply & you can accelerate coming off. (less pain) some also use baby to soften a tense breast but follow with a bottle. This tells the breast to slow production. ...Read more
More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well. After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs. This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep. Removing feeds from the sleep ritual alows them to learn to self settle. ...Read more
Not normal: It is rare to have breast milk or galactorrhea this long after breast feeding, and is usually related to elevated prolactin, and may be associated with a benign pituitary tumor.

Don't smoke at all: The nicotine you crave will readily pass through the bm as it forms & on to baby when fed. The half life of nicotine in baby can exceed 18 hours, meaning it will build up & effect babies brain causing irritability & may interfere with growth. Even if bottle fed the smell on your hair will increase babies crib death risk, double or triple respiratory illnesses. You have a choice, baby needs one too. ...Read more
Do Not Use Cocaine: You should not use illicit drugs when breast feeding. You need to immediately get into a detoxification program if you want to give good parental care to your child. Because the blood level of Cocaine over time is dependent on the amount taken & concurrent drugs, it's not possible to give a precise answer to your question. The baby would be safer on a bottle than on your breast milk. Get help now! ...Read more

My baby is only 5.8 kgs weight at 6 months old. She is on breast feed only. What should I feed her now?
Depends: Breast milk is the best nourishment available for infants. However, not every mom produce enough milk to adequately meet the need of infant. I wonder if your baby was born prematurely with low birth weight. If she weighed 7 lbs (3.18 kg) or more at birth, current weight is certainly low for her age. If so, she needs formula supplementation beside adding cereal to boost calory intake. ...Read more

My 5month old baby having Hb 9.2gm%, dr gave ferrilite drops, is baby fine, when will his Hb comes normal, having only breast feed?
He'll be fine: Babies are growing very rapidly in that first year, and their iron intake from breast or even from formula at times may not keep up with the need to make new red blood cells because they are growing so rapidly. That's why we as pediatricians check their Hgb between 6-12 months, and give iron if their levels are low. He's otherwise fine, just growing too fast for his diet to keep up with his needs. ...Read more

I had a bub 5 months ago an breast feed for the first two months now my breasts have shrunk to nothing! I have no breast tissue what can I do to help?
Well: They are smaller than when you got pregnant, I presume. There is little to do, I'm afraid. Have you been losing a lot of weight? Perhaps gaining some back would help. I can't think of a medical way to help; there is always the surgical if it's a big issue, which it sounds like. Perhaps better advise will come through. Gd luc. ...Read more
Son 3mnth 21day old. His birth wght&hgt was 6pnd&50cm. Now wght 12.98pnd. On breast feed, refusing to feed wel. No visible sign of sickness. Is his wght ok?
Hi... My son is 3 weeks old, I am currently breast feeding and I would also like to introduce formula as well. What is the easiest transition for him to get into formula. I still want to breast feed as well.
Formula and breast: It is a difficult to maintain milk supply when formula is added. If you really want to continue to breastfeed, I would recommend continuing that exclusively, which is thought to be the healthiest option. If you do want to switch to formula, you can start with one feeding per day and see how it goes. ...Read more
Some: Breast feeding is estimated to require an extra 300-500 calories a day which is bit more than needed by pregnancy. However you should not limit your intake too much since the amount of breast milk may decrease if you eat too little. However if you eat for a normal healthy adult you might lose about a pound a week. ...Read more
Demand: Supply and Demand - the stimulation of the breast feeding signals the body how much milk to make. There are two breasts so many twin moms will feed with one on each side.
