My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

My 9 month old baby has tears when he is breastfeeding?

He has tears..: ...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too. Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much. ...Read more

I took excederin migraine and am breastfeeding my 9 month old (21lbs.) With chicken pox. Two pills is 500mg is that okay? When is it safe to breastfee

Excedrin Migraine: Contains Aspirin and Caffeine not recommended for breast feeding. If you are taking this medication, pumping for 24 hours prior to resuming breast feeding would be safe. Try Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen which are safe. All the best. Who has chick pox? Because if you do, the baby has not been immunized and will likely get the same. ...Read more

Cardio Mix: If you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

It is possible: That you may be coming down with the flu especially if you are not getting enough sleep. You will be more prone to catching a cold or any virus. Get plenty of sleep, eat properly and take something to help you feel better. Otherwise you will have to see your pcp. Get the flu shot if you have not had yours yet. ...Read more

My son is 9 months old. I used to give him 3 meals per day. But since few days he has stopped taking any solid and wants only breast feed. Wgt 8.5 kg?

Reply: If he is otherwise not sick, then most likely teething could be the reason when gums are swollen and eating solids causes discomfort. Give him puree foods for the time being, use teethers and keep them clean, tylenol (acetaminophen) as needed but if necessary. Keep an eye on any other symptoms causing this issue. ...Read more

How long does maternal immunity to chicken pox last in breast feed babies? Afraid as my 7 month baby exposed to his father diagnosed varcilla. Pl help

Several weeks: The maternal transmitted immunity only is protective for several weeks. A 7 month old child is not protected. If he has been exposed to his Dad he may get chickenpox. This would happen up to 3 weeks after the exposure. It is unlikely an early immunization would help. All the best and I hope he escapes the illness. ...Read more
