My baby suffer from constant constipation, he is 7/12 old on breast feeding and just started to eat solids . I don't know what to give him ? Plz help
Breast fed kids: Breast fed infants can stool a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go it is not constipation. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. Solids like applesauce, rice cereal or bananas often slow things down & constipate a baby. Peaces, pears, & barley are less constipating. ...Read more
A balanced diet: Be sure to consume enough fluids that you end up peeing at least 4x daily. Eat a balanced diet and avoid things that you find irritate baby.Things that make you gassy will likely do the same for baby.Avoid experimenting with spicy or hot foods and please don't try to restrict your calories. If you eat your pre-pregnancy needs some weight will come off naturally with breast feeding. ...Read more

I am going through depression and can't eat. I've lost 20 lbs and am down to 100lbs. I am a breast feeding mom.. What do I do? Should I see a dr?
YES, see a doctor: You have to stay physically and emotionally healthy to care for your baby (and yourself). Being a new mother can be incredibly stressful — you deserve help when you need it. There are many treatments for depression, including some that don't interfere with breast-feeding. Talk to your primary care doctor, or get a referral to a mental health professional (eg, psychiatrist or psychologist). ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
