Can Milk Stay In A Childs Stomach
Great question!: Sorry, but no. Gassiness in a baby is more due to swallowed air rather than indigestible foods for which the enzymes in beano work.

Is it preferable to pump milk once the baby had finished his feeding and resting? Or should I keep milk for next feeding? In term of increasing milk
I like to express milk in a bottle to see how much my baby is taking is that also breasfeeding or wil inot reduce my milk supply.
Don't need to know: We don't need to know how much a baby drinks while breastfeeding, as long as the baby is growing normally, as shown by the growth charts that track height and weight at each visit to the doctor. If the baby gets sick, irritable, or is not making wet diapers, the doctor can evaluate. In a baby who is not growing, we can just weigh the baby before and after a breastfeeding to see how much he drank. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I avoid gas traped in my baby's stomach during feeding. It makes her uncomfortable. She is feeding on both breast and formula milk (nan 1).
How often and how many ounces should a 2 week old be eating? I'm giving her breast milk and formula in a bottle.
Great weight is key: A 2 week old will eat often, though each child develops his/her own pattern. For breastfeeding, a 20-30 minute session every 2 hours is typical for an infant this age. With bottle feeding, 2 oz every 2 hours is typical. Try breastfeeding first - often you don't need a bottle then. The best way to know you're baby is getting enough is if they're gaining weight - good weight gain means enough food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can husband drink milk produced in breast of her wife by stimulating the breast . IS it baleful for health?
No problem, unless..: Unless a mom has too little milk, it doesn't matter at all that somebody else (such as a twin sibling or another person) is drinking some of the milk. The breasts will make more. So, as long as the baby is well-fed and happily growing, mom is fine to share her breast milk. However, breast milk is very rich with lots of milkfat, so it may not be healthy for adult humans to drink too much of it. ...Read more

Read the label: Every formula is slightly different - read the label of your formula. Most do not recommend mixing the formula very far ahead of time, but you'll need to read the label to see.

It's best for baby. ...Read more
What age can I start giving my bottle fed baby some water in a sippy cup in addition to his formula?

A sippy cup with a hard snout is preferred.The ones with a soft snout are basically bottles that look different. ...Read more
