Can I use glycerin suppositories for my 1 month old baby she has 2 days without BM? I feed her formula and breast milk but mostly breast milk.

Mgt: Babies have different stool patterns. I would suggest discontinuation of the glycerin suppositories. Continue to keep your baby well fed with mostly breast milk. If there is no stool in 5 to 7 days, a visit to your PCP is advised. At your next visit, review the results of her newborn screening tests. ...Read more

Is it ok to feed a 3 1/2 month old baby baby food if they just constantly seem hungry?

Define hunger: By 3.5 months a kid can get its fingers in its mouth and satisfy its pleasure of touching the lips by sucking fingers constantly.That is not hunger, that is fun.They will often take extra feed if offered, but if you kid is growing well without solids, they are not needed. A pacifier would be a better investment for many. Hunger= empty stomach, not wanting to suck a lot. ...Read more
