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

What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?

What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?

Efficency: It's more efficient to breast feed than to pump & then bottle feed. You also avoid any risk of less than perfectly sterile bottles causing the milk to carry an infection. In addition, baby's nursing tends to trigger you to produce more milk than pumping. That said, having breast fed both my kids, pumping when i was away & nursing when i was with baby was a very effective compromise. ...Read more

Do surrogate mothers produce breast milk after delivering the baby?

Yes: Under most circumstances, women who give birth can produce breast milk (for that matter, some women who do not give birth can produce breast milk).

How do breast milk and formula change a baby's poo?

How do breast milk and formula change a baby's poo?

Br.Milk: looser poop: Breastmilk-fed babies usually have looser, more watery, poops when compared to formula-fed babies. Breastmilk has ingredients that encourage the intestines to move the poop along, so the poop leaves the baby sooner (a faster transit time means the poop doesn't stay in the baby long, so the poop doesn't get drier nor firmer). Formula-fed babies have firmer poops and more easily get constipated. ...Read more

Baby acne: Breast milk does not treat baby acne. Baby acne usually clears up on its own around age 3 months, but if it is really red and inflamed, please visit your dermatologist for treatment. Heat rash and inflammation of hair follicles due to yeast (pityrosporum folliculitis) can look like acne. Infantile acne may leave scars. It is also a predictor of having inflamed acne in teen years. ...Read more

What is the harm in feeding my baby breast milk and one formula milk at night?

Mixed feedings: I congratulate you on choosing to breastfeed your baby. There is no harm in your plan to give baby one formula feeding at night. Dad can feed him and bond with him too. Formula feeding will come in handy when the time comes that you cannot breastfeed e.g., taking off for several hours and more importantly, in the presence of infection or having to take medication that might harm the baby. ...Read more
