My daughter is 9months and she weight 7kg is she in normal weight and she take bebelac 2 she isn't breastfeeding?

WEIGHT GAIN...: Her weight is little below average (about 20th percentile). Birth weight doubles at 4 months, triples at 1 year. At the age of one, 10 kg is standard weight for a full term baby. Give her more solid food with proteins. Breakfast cereal, lunch and dinner- jar/pureed food on moderation, formula 4-5 times daily. Her pediatrician should have shown you what percentile she is for her height and weight. ...Read more

I have a daughter of ten months and till this day im still breastfeeding but lately my breasthurt. Especially my left side is that normal?

No: Breast pain after nursing for several months without pain is not normal. It may be from a plugged milk duct which can be treated with heat and gentle massage. It also could be caused by mastitis (infection of the breast) or a yeast infection. If heat and massage don't help, you should be seen by your doctor. ...Read more

Bf and menses: Many women do not get their period when they breastfeed. This is normal and has nothing to do with your overall health.

My 3 month daughter poos after taking formula not after breastfeeding.this happened  only for past 2 days why?is nan pro better or dexolac premium?

Cause/effect? : May be not related. Most babies have loose stools on breast milk and stool consistency (more solid) and smell may change with certain formulas. Breast milk is always better for your baby but if you need or choose to use a formula and the baby looks happy and is healthy, you may do so. Most regular formulas nowadays are very similar. ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding and my daughter is allergic to seafood. Is it ok for me to eat seafood?

Breast milk &allergy: If the baby is definitely allergic to the seafood you wish to eat (meaning positive skin test and challenge, or recurrent reactions), I would advise that you not eat it . Allergens can be transmitted in milk. If the baby is allergic to shrimp (example), but not to other shellfish or fish, not all fish need to be avoided by mom, only the ones baby clearly has a clinical reaction to . ...Read more

Any relief for my daughter's postpartum puppp symptoms? She is miserable ans breastfeeding.

PUPPP: The main treatments for this condition are skin moisturizers or lubricants, steroid creams twice a day and antihistamines. The good news is that it only occurs with the first pregnancy and likely represents an allergic reaction to the stretch marks. It usually clears several weeks after delivery. Since your daughter is breast feeding, please have her discuss options with the gynecologist or nurse. Congratulations on your grandchild. Good luck with your daughters recovery. My daughter delivered a healthy baby boy two weeks ago in irvine. You certainly have a beautiful city. ...Read more

Why is it that every time I start breastfeeding my daughter I suddenly start falling asleep yet when I'm not breastfeeding I'm wide awake?

Why is it that every time I start breastfeeding my daughter I suddenly start falling asleep yet when I'm not breastfeeding I'm wide awake?

Love hormone: Breastfeeding occurs with the help of a symphony of hormones working together. The two main breastfeeding hormones are oxytocin, the "love hormone" and prolactin, the "mothering hormone". The release of these hormones from the brain can cause sleepiness, relaxation and a feeling of contentment. Also ensure you rest during the day while baby is asleep, eat small, frequent meals and stay hydrated. ...Read more

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle cough 5-6 times a day.is it normal or need to worry?

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle  cough 5-6 times a day.is it normal or need to worry?

Calories taken in: are ounces of formula times 20 calories per ounce so she is taking 12 ounces which represents 240 calories. Assuming she weighs about 3 kg her caloric intake is about 80 calories per kg per day which is ok. A tickle type cough is nothing to be worried about. Better still is to see how many wet diapers she has in a day. If at least five then she is getting adequate fluids. ...Read more
