Type of formula: Formulas have different bases - cows milk, soybean, and basic amino acids. Some infants can react to the protein in formula. Foul smell and dark stool are worrisome for a reaction that should be seen tomorrow by your MD to make sure the formula your child is on is causing intestinal irritation.

My daughter 3 days did not want to breast-feed, what to do with breasts because I feel pain? Help

Lactation Specialist: You may want to see a lactation specialist from your birth hospital to help assist with breastfeeding. Many questions here? Is the baby stooling frequently? Is your milk in? Are your breasts engorged? Is milk flowing once baby latches on? Be sure to get comfortable first, wait till the baby's mouth is wide and bring him straight onto the breast, with the tip of the nipple in the back of his mouth ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding and my daughter is allergic to seafood. Is it ok for me to eat seafood?

I'm breastfeeding and my daughter is allergic to seafood. Is it ok for me to eat seafood?

Breast milk &allergy: If the baby is definitely allergic to the seafood you wish to eat (meaning positive skin test and challenge, or recurrent reactions), I would advise that you not eat it. Allergens can be transmitted in milk. If the baby is allergic to shrimp (example), but not to other shellfish or fish, not all fish need to be avoided by mom, only the ones baby clearly has a clinical reaction to. ...Read more

Can I get B12 or other weight lose shots while breastfeeding? I am still 50 pounds over weight and my daughter is 5 months old

Why is it that every time I start breastfeeding my daughter I suddenly start falling asleep yet when I'm not breastfeeding I'm wide awake?

Why is it that every time I start breastfeeding my daughter I suddenly start falling asleep yet when I'm not breastfeeding I'm wide awake?

Love hormone: Breastfeeding occurs with the help of a symphony of hormones working together. The two main breastfeeding hormones are oxytocin, the "love hormone" and prolactin, the "mothering hormone". The release of these hormones from the brain can cause sleepiness, relaxation and a feeling of contentment. Also ensure you rest during the day while baby is asleep, eat small, frequent meals and stay hydrated. ...Read more

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle cough 5-6 times a day. Is it normal or need to worry?

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle cough 5-6 times a day. Is it normal or need to worry?

Calories taken in: Are ounces of formula times 20 calories per ounce so she is taking 12 ounces which represents 240 calories. Assuming she weighs about 3 kg her caloric intake is about 80 calories per kg per day which is ok. A tickle type cough is nothing to be worried about. Better still is to see how many wet diapers she has in a day. If at least five then she is getting adequate fluids. ...Read more

Any relief for my daughter's postpartum puppp symptoms? She is miserable ans breastfeeding.

Any relief for my daughter's postpartum puppp symptoms? She is miserable ans breastfeeding.

PUPPP: The main treatments for this condition are skin moisturizers or lubricants, steroid creams twice a day and antihistamines. The good news is that it only occurs with the first pregnancy and likely represents an allergic reaction to the stretch marks. It usually clears several weeks after delivery. Since your daughter is breast feeding, please have her discuss options with the gynecologist or nurse. Congratulations on your grandchild. Good luck with your daughters recovery. My daughter delivered a healthy baby boy two weeks ago in irvine. You certainly have a beautiful city. ...Read more

My daughter is 2 and yes I am still breastfeeding is it ok for me to take garcinia cambogia if she only feeds during the night to go to sleep?

Protracted breast-: Feeding is ok, but nursing her to sleep & co-sleeping reinforce her night-waking &? her risk for cavities. If you're ready for her to develop self-calming skills for sleep, brush her teeth after reading, soothing & nursing at a consistent bedtime & put her to bed in her own room, drowsy, but awake.

Will following a ketogenic diet while breastfeeding adversely affect my 8 month old daughter? She is a good eater and eats a variety of solids.

Constant ketosis: In light of the fact that your infant "is a good eater and eats a variety of solids", breast feeding her while on the ketogenic diet probably will not harm the baby. However, it may have detrimental effects on your health and energy levels. Our body needs carbs to perform normal day functions. Importance of a well balanced diet cannot be overemphasized. ...Read more
