But a baby crying can be a powerful sound. And there are studies where sound provokes hand pain used in an experimental sense to measure sounds. Our cerebral wiring is complex.. Speak to a neurologist it these things continu. ...Read more

My 1 month baby nurses then, sleep on my breast. Then when I put her in bed she wakes up crying nurse again and so on till midnight. Is this normal?

Infants consolidate: sleep from 1-4 mos. Of age. At a consistent bedtime, nurse your baby, wipe out her mouth with a soft cloth, read to her & cuddle, then put her on her back in her crib in her own room when she's drowsy, but awake, to learn to self-calm to sleep. You'll be less likely to try to feed her when she cries out in light sleep. This prevents " bad" bedtime habits & lowers her risk for cavities at 5-6 mos. ...Read more

Galactorrhea can also occur as a side effect of hypothyroidism which sometimes happens after pregnancy.

Oxytocin surge: You are a female that the instinctual response of the adult female is to respond to a crying baby. This response can be in the form of a release of oxytocin from teh brain (pituitary gland), which causes contraction of some of the smooth muscles in the breast. This can cause pain in some individuals. The same response causes milk let down / leakage in lactating females. It is natural. ...Read more

Helo how can I know if my breast milk is enough for my baby? Because she always keep crying and her age is 17 days. Thank you

Helo how can I know if my breast milk is enough for my baby? Because she always keep crying and her age is 17 days. Thank you

Crying: Babies cry and it doesn't always mean that they are hungry - it is how they communicate. Did you take her to her 2 week checkup? At this visit the pediatrician would check her weight and make sure she was back up to her birth weight. If she is gaining weight as expected, you can rest assured your breast milk is enough. BF babies want to eat often (sometimes every hour), this is also normal. ...Read more

I had abortion due to ds baby about 6wlks ago&still have milk leaking out my breasts. Can I still ovulate&get pregnant again when milk is leaking?

Possibly....: If you are still leaking milk from your breasts, you may have an elevated prolactin level. This may make it more difficult to ovulate, but you never know. Since it has been 6 weeks, you should see your gyn for an evaluation. Best of luck! ...Read more

Baby refusing to bf or bottle feed since she started baby rice last week. Stopped baby rice still she bf from 1 breast for 10min then start crying?

Be patient with her: Baby actually gets almost 90% of feeding from breast within first 5 minutes of nursing, thus, I expect she is getting most of the feeding off of that breast. You are right to stop the cereal - her milk is the mainstay of her nutrition, and she needs to nurse or take the formula. You could also try sips from a cup if she refuses the bottle -maybe she's just growing up too fast! ...Read more

Feeding important: A small VSD would generally not be expected to cause feeding problems or other symptoms. Feeding problems can be an important sign, but they would generally involve sweating and fatigue (shortness of breath), not crying, and it would be a pattern--a consistent problem, not just a single bad feeding. Check in with your cardiologist, but it's probably not related. ...Read more

7 months pregnant and breasts have been leaking colostrum, third baby, nipples stinging really bad. Why?

Body preparing: Congrats on baby number 3! your body has "been there, done that" before, and so knows a baby is soon to come and is now beginning to prepare for what happens after birth, including early milk production and toughing of the nipples. This time it recognizes the pattern, and so these type of changes occur earlier in subsequent pregnancies. Make sure you are getting plenty of rest to prepare for birth. ...Read more

Bacteria on your skin can also grow in leaked milk.

My baby won't stop crying. All he wants to do is eat? I am breast feeding and u know he is getting enough milk but he is still fussy?

My baby won't stop crying. All he wants to do is eat? I am breast feeding and u know he is getting enough milk but he is still fussy?

Fussy baby: Is your baby crying every time you try to stop feeding him (or take him away from your breast? Or put him down?) it sounds like you know he is getting enough milk and what the baby wants is the closeness and non-nutritive sucking. You may want to try a pacifier to allow your baby to continue sucking when you put him down. That allowed me to finally be able to put my little fuss-budget down. ...Read more

Is it normal for breast milk to leak out your breasts after 1 year of having a Baby? Or can you be pregnant again?

Can be normal but...: There are many conditions that can lead to galactorrhea (the term for milk discharge in the absence of pregnancy or breast feeding) Some causes can be as benign as stimulation during sexual activity and others can be serious. You should see your doctor to discuss a workup.

My 2 month old baby has suddenly stop taking breastfeeding. But he is having formula. Whenever I try to give him breast feed he starts crying.?

Keep trying: To have the formula from a bottle is easier for a baby because of the nipple opening is wider. It's much harder for them to get a milk from the breast. Keep on trying to breastfeed prior to the supplement infant with a formula.

Hi. My friend gave birth yesterday and her baby is crying all the time and pases very less urine. Is there any way to increase her breast milk??

Fluids, time: Do not panic. Babies are born with some extra fluid onot board to get them through until the milk comes in. Baby crying is actually very helpful to stimulate arts of the brain that regulate milk production, so the crying is actually good in those first few days. She needs to rest, put baby to breast ofen and drink LOTS of fluids. That's it- very simple and easy. RELAX- the milk will come! ...Read more
