Can my baby choke on my breast milk while breastfeeding?

Can my baby choke on my breast milk while breastfeeding?

Sometimes: I've seen, on occasion, moms who produce a lot of milk very quickly, and the flow is too much for the baby. We once asked a mom of a choking baby to pump her breast in order to see how much was coming out, and she pumped 10oz from one breast in about 10 minutes. If your flow is like that, pump some off first to decrease the flow/amount. If not, see you pediatrician about swallowing problems. ...Read more

When can I feed my baby yogurt?

When can I feed my baby yogurt?

6 months: There's no convincing evidence that delaying any food beyond 4 to 6 months reduces the odds of allergies. The main reasons to delay foods are if they 1) are a choking hazard (like peanuts), 2) might cause an infection (like honey or raw eggs), 3) contain questionable ingredients (such as artificial colors), or 4) aren't good foods that you want kids to learn to love (such as soda or french fries). ...Read more

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

Smile..er Cheese :-): Assuming no allergies have been plaguing your child, table foods are usually started at 8 to 9 months of age. While baby foods are introduced at about 6 month of age, real honest to goodness table foods are delayed until we know the child is able to chew and swallow well. Cheese is good for kids. Small amounts are started then increased as the child is able to tolerate more volume. ...Read more

Depends on the form: I think the real question is, "when can my child have corn kernels?" corn can be given as a normal solid with the other solids at 8-9 months when table foods are being introduced. There is nothing special about corn. However, corn kernels with skins are a choking hazard, and should be reserved until later, usually 15 mo or so, when chewing and swallowing are better coordinated. ...Read more
