Whole milk products: Whole milk products may not be tolerated until after 12 months of age. Use infant formula (or breast milk) to make sure your baby gets the right balance of digestible nutrients. If your baby still doesn't tolerate whole cow's milk after a year of age, you may need to try a lactose free cow's milk or soy milk . Some babies can tolerate yogurt, since the lactose is broken down more. ...Read more
Either: Water is a healthy part of any diet. Formula or breast milk is actually balanced to provide the proper amount of water equivalent, to the baby making extra water unnecessary in most cases. It is a reasonable supplement to breast fed kids when relatives want to share the joy of a nurturing moment, & extra water for a kid with hard stools is often helpful. ...Read more
How much cow milk per day is OK or safe to give to a one year and 4 month old baby. She like milk a lot?
I limit to ~500cc: Cow milk is designed to feed calves, and used without special processing can irritate the human gut.Excessive intake can trigger small amounts of blood loss from the gut and result in anemia.An older kid who stays around 500cc/day (8oz)will get all the calcium they need for bone growth without triggering anemia. ...Read more
I gave my two months old infant a drop of old prepared formula milk by mistake.what can happen to my infant?
What to do if I have a 4 day old infant, that I am breast and bottle feed. How can I completely empty the milk in my breast?
Breastfeeding: If you have enough milk to exclusively breast feed no bottle feeding is needed. In 15 minutes of sucking the baby will empty the breast. If he/she is satisfied with only nursing on one side you can pump the other side and freeze it for future use. Pumping does not completely empty the breast like the suction from a baby but a good pump will do ok. ...Read more
I have 2 day old infant (2nd child) and I have extremely sore cracked nipples.I pumped milk and right breast milk had blood clots. Help please. ?
Don't worry!: some bleeding from the nipples is normal and if the baby gets a little of your blood in the milk it is ok. If there is a lot, you could dump it if it makes you feel better. Use a gentle barrier ointment like lanolin on your nipples after nursing. Make sure to vary nursing positions and alternate starting breast. See a lactation consult if things don't improve in a few days. ...Read more
Newborn jaundice : No breast milk does not prevent newborn jaundice which will happen to most of newborn. Usually breast feeding newborns may have more jaundice than formula feeding babies.

Neonatal jaundice should be followed closely and treated with photo therapy (bili light) if needed. ...Read more
I do not recommend: G6pd exists in different forms with different severity. Mild forms of the condition might tolerate soya bean oil where severe forms of the disease probably would not tolerate it.

What you eat can: Breast milk won't make babies gassy usually, and most tolerate straight breast milk very well. However, there are certain foods that are famous for causing gas and bloating if mom eats them, then breastfeeds: cabbage, spicy foods, pepper, onions, garlic, caffeine, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. I've had parents figure out almonds, tomatoes, and such. Scout recent meals and take notes. ...Read more

Pattern feeder: As long as you feed her at night she will follow a feeding clock that wakes her up to feed at night.If you drop the volume gradually and move to only water at night, she will replace the lost calories with more day feeding.At some point she will stop waking to feed, but might wakee for comfort/contact.If you let her stir/fuss foe 5min before you check her, she will quit this. ...Read more
Lid hygiene: I recommend lid hygiene for your baby. To do this, use cotton balls and baby shampoo, wipe the debris away from the eye and wash four times a day. Also use cold compresses for comfort four times a day. If there is a stye or hordeolum, use hot compresses to assist with drainage. If there is purulent drainage/crust then your baby can benefit from erythromycin ointment which is by prescription. ...Read more

Worth waiting: Cow milk is designed for cows.In the era when it was used as a formula base/substitute it was boiled to break up the protein some and make it more digestible.Straight cow milk can actually produce intestinal bleeding when given in enough quantity to substitute for formula or breast milk.After a year the intestines are more mature/tolerant, but excesses can still cause anemia. ...Read more
