Diet Pills While Nursing A Toddler
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anorectic agents generally known as diet pills are medications which decrease or inhibit appetite and aid in the reduction of food intake, therefore aiding weightmloss. Most currently FDA-approved appetite medications are dispensed by prescription due to potential side effects and contraindications. Diet pills alone are seldom successful in deriving long-term weight reduction. They should only be taken under the direct supervision of a physician specifically trained in their use as a part of a multi-modal treatment program including diet, exercise, ...Read more
Can I go on optifast brand meal replacement diet 800cal while breastfeeding a 4 month old that is also eating solids and 1 bottle of formula a day?
Need More Calories: This is a pretty severe calorie restriction if you are planning to eat only 800 calories a day! Remember while your baby is breastfeeding over the next several months, you will continue to make more and more milk and here is where the pounds usually really come off with breastfeeding. I would stick with a fruits and veggies with lean meats and three milk servings a day. Not less than 1500kcal ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe take omnitrition drops and the vitamins that come with the program while breastfeeding a 12 month old that prefers breast milk over food?
My toddler is a picky eater who refuses fruit and veggies. she's not regular. any suggestions on adding a fiber supplement?
Fiber supplements: in the shape of cereals and nutrition bars are usually most readily accepted. However my recommendation is to continue to entice her with small servings of different types of greens and fruits, prepared in different manners, taken together with things she may like. Most kids refuse veggies due to their texture, but I have not met many children who rebuff everything under the sun. Persistence ! ...Read more
What birth control pills should I take?my baby is 1year and 5months but he is mix feeding bottles and to me?thank you
Personal decision: Ideally, an artificial nipple will never cross the lips of a baby. However, many valid reasons to do so exist. Maternal illness/medication/surgery, lactation problems or ineffective nursing, poor infant weight gain or social stigmata are all some of the reasons families may choose to supplement. It can also be quite rewarding for a father to be able to feed his baby as well. ...Read more
Sounds ok: If a person had no prior problems taking typical over-the-counter multivitamins (or multivitamins with minerals) before starting to take birth control pills, then she should have no problems taking both the vitamins and the birth control pills. If worried, she can gather up her medications and supplements, and then make an appointment with her primary care doctor, to review what she is taking. ...Read more
2.5m old has active tongue(sticks it out a lot, smacks) and is starting to have trouble first taking a bottle (BF and bottlefed) gags often. Normal?
Could be normal: Is baby spitting up/arching or uncomfortable? What you are describing could be normal but I would want your baby's doctor to know about it and evaluate it. It's most likely nothing,could be reflux but I would want to make sure smacking is not seizure activity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vitamin E and Folic : Food high in vitamin e and Folic Acid help decrease red blood cell breakdown in g6pd.

Begin slow: I recommend you begin to introduce solid foods at 6 months. You begin with one food at a time for 3-5 days and if no allergic reaction add another. You can begin with cereal if not already thickening formula with it. Then vegetables alternating with fruits one at a time. Avoid any foods that triggers allergic reaction. Balance yellow and green vegetables. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
