My baby just turned 1. Which is better 4 her, stick to baby formula or switch her 2 cow's milk? Which one is healthier? Thank you ☺

Depends: By the time a kid turns one, most have incorporated a variety of semisolid foods. These can easily make up for some of the special features of breast milk or formula. Regular milk, rather than low fat/skim is needed because baby uses the added fat to support brain growth which slows after 2. The extra in formula if not used end up in her pee. ...Read more

I'm a brand new mom and my milk is drying up, but I don't want to give my baby formula. What can I do?

I'm a brand new mom and my milk is drying up, but I don't want to give my baby formula. What can I do?

Pump/feed often: Breastmilk supply does its best to keep up with demand so if you think your milk production is falling a little short increase the demand. A couple times a day pump after your baby nurses. Stimulating your breasts when they're empty tells your body "the baby finished all the milk and is still hungry - I better make more". And remember to rest when you can, eat well, and stay hydrated. ...Read more

Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Formula, Normal pasteurized Cow Milk or UHT Long Life Cow Milk?

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?

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

Is there any hypoallergenic baby formula that tastes similar to breast milk? Any formula at all similar?

Taste is subjective!: Most infant formula is modeled after breast milk. The nutrients and needs of the growing infant are the first importance. Hypoallergenic implies less likely to cause allergic response, but this too depends on the infant. Taste is a minor concern in providing quality nutrition for the growing infant. ...Read more

What is cows milk protein allergy? What foods to avoid? What's best baby formula to use he also has silent reflux on ranitidine and domperidone

Any cow milk product: Cow's milk is present in most cheeses, yoghurt, cream, butter and hence virtually all dairy. You must read the labels to know for sure. Soy based formulas are the most common alternatives. Your pediatrician should help you select a formula that is milk-free. It may be possible later in childhood to introduce sheep and goat milk products but wait for your pediatrician to give the ok. ...Read more

I had birth on may 5/2014, and till now I didn't have my menstrual cycle, and I'm feeding my baby formula milk not from my breast, so is this normal?

I had birth on may 5/2014, and till now I didn't have my menstrual cycle, and I'm feeding my baby formula milk not from my breast, so is this normal?

Not normal: Usually periods resume within 8 weeks of having a baby if you never breastfed. I I would do a pregnancy test and see your doctor for further evaluation. If you took Clomid (clomiphene) in order to get pregnant, you're probably not ovulating and therefore not getting periods. If this is the case, then you should be on hormonal medication to regulate cycles when nor trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

What kind of water is best for preparing baby formula? Reverse osmosis from the store? Tap water? Boiled tap water? Nursery water?

Water for formula: Excellent question. You want safe water supply that's appropriately fluoridated so your baby doesn't end up with rotten teeth. MOST community water sources are safe, are closely regulated for what can and can't be in water. We're all scared after Flint MI, but most city water sources are perfect. DON'T boil water. It concentrates trace metals present in the water. Nursery water OK but expensive ...Read more

What is the best water to use to prepare my 6 mo old baby formula? Tap water, bottled, or tap water that has been boiled?

Depends: If you live in a city with an approved water supply, and are confident about the plumbing in your home to drink it yourself, use tap water. If you have a well, and it passes tests for impurities+good plumbing, it is fine. If your plumbing has sediment or adds a funny taste, city water is not that great, or have untested well water, boil and or use bottled. ...Read more

Advice for my 2 1/2 yrs old boy milk. Can I give plain milk or mix some health powder?

Plain milk is fine: Plain homogenized milk is fine for your son. However, I would limit the total daily volume to less than 24 oz, preferably much less, since drinking that much milk or more a day would most likely lead to iron deficiency. Even if milk does have vitamin d, if your son is dark skined, it would be a good idea to supplement with daily vitamin d, about 200-400 units a day. ...Read more
