On The Bottle Again?: If taken from the Ganges River I'd advise that you do. But most commercially bottled water is OK. My grandfather always boiled the tap water to get rid of the chlorine in it but as far as I know most bottled water doesn't have that, or fluoride in it. No harm in boiling it though, as long as it's body temperature or less when given to the baby. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Can I nurse my baby when she gets hungry in between feedings, in addition to bottle feeding her pumped breast milk? Or is that feeding her too much?
Nurture vs nutrient: Don't assume that willingness to latch & feed every hour is necessary hunger. You can unwittingly create a snacking baby if you assume every mouthing or rooting response is a need to feed. Babies can do this for the comfort. Hunger is an empty stomach. ...Read more

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?
INFANT FEEDING: I see mom is taking propranolol, carbamezipine and propylthiouracil. All these are l-2 drugs, means she can breastfeed without adverse effects to the baby. If baby refuses to nurse, mom can pump the milk with breast pump and feed baby in the bottle. If enough milk is not there, she can supplement with formula after breast milk. Best advise: talk to the pediatrician. ...Read more
Baby is 8 months biting mother when nursing but keeps refusing bottle . Baby is underweight(10 percentile) best way to wean a baby who will not take a bottle but needs nutrition ?
Work with the doctor: A normal baby at 8 months can easily be trained to take a bottle, if "no breasts are available" to the baby. So, the baby in question appears to have other issues, leading to questions such as: is the baby truly too small, why is the baby too small, why won't the baby take a bottle, etc... In such cases, the parents have to see the doctor a few times and work together to keep the baby growing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am feeding my 40 days old baby nestle's nan pro 1 with bottle. Is it fine or shall I feed him with silver spoon and bowl or use steel spoon n bowl?
Introducing solids : Bottle feed him until four months. The AMerican Acsdemy of Pediatrics recommends formula bottle feeding exclusively till four months. In general between four to six months babies are ready to accept food by mouth. Start with veggies, and see if he leans in to the spoon and opens his mouth to accept! If he "clams up" and refuses, try again in a month! Have fun feeding your baby! Such fun mess! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A 3 week old breast feeding infant. Does this baby need extra water from a bottle if constipated? Does this baby need to take water from a bottle?
No!: Breast milk provides everything that infants need. In fact, babies under 4 months, who are given supplemental water may develop a condition called 'water intoxication' which is associated with seizures. Are baby's stools hard or just infrequent? Breast fed babies may have bms with every feed, or as infrequently as 1-2 times a week, soft/mushy stools. Talk specifics with dr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Feed as baby wakes : Babies develop a better schedule if you feed as they wake up. Baby has strength from the rest & can take a good feed before tiring. Then do diaper changes & cleaning. Playing after cleaning allows good mommy time. As baby tires they will settle if you put them down. They do not sleep longer if fed before sleep, they have more night waking because they have been taught to need food to settle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Yes, but sharing a bed is more dangerous. Just use a bassinet next to the bed, instead of sharing a bed. A baby sleeping with an adult is at risk of suffocation from fluffy blankets and pillows, from getting his head trapped between the mattress' edge and the wall or headboard, and from getting squashed by a 150-pound adult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6moson refusing bottles but still wants solids even feeding with bottle first he pushes away and only eat couple ounces but still wants solids. Help!
Nutrition First!!: Go with the flow. Let him have the solids- just make sure you make-up for the lost protein with legumes or yogurt or cottage cheese and the fluids with water or non-fat milk. Not every kid likes bottle formula at that age. You try it and you may guess why. If it's milk he abhors, maybe soy milk will work. Or milk with lactose removed. Don't try to force feed. Just work around it with other sources ...Read more

2 mth old has been exclusively breast fed so far. no bottle feeding at all. must we introduce a bottle, or is it ok to continue without a bottle?
You decide: Breast alone can certainly fit for most mom/babe couplets for this process. If you chose to offer a bottle,ever,let it be someone else when you are not around or baby will not cooperate.Having a backup feeding plan for unexpected events, like maternal surgery, unexpected separation is worthwhile for some.Total BF kids can really struggle if is is forced on them by necessity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
