Can breast feeding women take yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Probably: Hormonal birth control might affect milk supply, so it's best to use a non-hormone method, like a copper iud. Birth control that doesn't have estrogen, like Nexplanon implants or the mini pill, is probably better than a regular pill like yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). If you start on birth control with hormones, keep track of how much milk you are making, and consider another method if it decreases. ...Read more

My 6 w old baby recently had good rest only when fed with my pumped milk in bottle but when breast feed it takes hours and hours. Why? Is it problem?

My 6 w old baby recently had good rest only when fed with my pumped milk in bottle but when breast feed it takes hours and hours. Why? Is it problem?

Baby satisfied: Sounds like maybe the baby has latch issues on the breast and may not be getting as much to eat on the breast as when you gave the bottle. Baby may have some weak suck muscles that make breast feeding harder. Is there a lactation consultant in your area>? That would help so much! You may also benefit form an oral motor evaluation. Good question. ...Read more

My son is 2 years old. But he is not interested to eating food. He take breast feeding. He is under weight & his weight is 10.5 kg now. What can I do?

My son is 2 years old. But he is not interested to eating food. He take breast feeding. He is under weight & his weight is 10.5 kg now. What can I do?

4 meals a day: Picky eaters are hard to deal with. In general, do not let him nibble constantly. Rather feed him 3 meals plus a bedtime snack. Give him choices but never limit the volume of any food. The objective is to create an appetite and that is only done if he will eat volume and expand his stomach. Then patiently wait a month and see. If that does not work u will need him evaluated by a pediatrician. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex two days after ovulation, since am breast feeding I didn't take any after pills, how can I prevent possibilities of pregnancy?

Nothing: There is nothing you can do a this point to prevent the pregnancy. There are contraceptive methods breastfeeding moms can utilize, but it is too late for that with this incident. How do you know you were ovulating, as this is usually quite irregular during nursing? The only way to guarantee no pregnancy would have been abstaining around ovulation. Now you just have to wait and see... ...Read more

Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are recommended during breast feeding.

Is L carnintine safe to take while I am breast feeding?

Is L carnintine safe to take while I am breast feeding?

Probably safe: Levocarnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine (acetlycarnitine) are normal components of human milk that are required for fat metabolism. It appears unlikely that maternal levocarnitine supplements during nursing would be harmful to the infant, but until more data are available, it is probably best to avoid levocarnitine.

How to quit breast feeding? Do I have to take medicine?

Maybe pain medicine: If a breastfeeding woman stops abruptly, she will still get engorged with milk. She may have to pump occasionally to relieve the discomfort, but cannot pump too often or she will keep making milk. She can take some tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for 2 or 3 days if needed to relieve pain. Quitting gradually (switching one feeding to formula, then 2 feedings, and then 3 feedings, etc...) is less painful. ...Read more
