I have been feeding my daughter ready made similac at room temp for over a week after opening. Can she get sick from this?

I have been feeding my daughter ready made similac at room temp for over a week after opening. Can she get sick from this?

No: I take it that you are simply opening a can and transfer it to a bottle and feeding it. I don't see anything wrong with it, if the baby is drinking well. Warming the milk is preferable for a young newborn baby because it simulates temperature of breast milk, but certainly it does not sterilize the milk. ...Read more

My 10 week old daughter is exclusively formula fed. She still spits up a lot, and for a while after each feeding. How can I help her out?

Burp, upright: New babies, like 10 week old, spit alot. The valves that close their stomachs are not well developed, and they are also on liquid diets and eat frequently. Feed slowly, burp frequently and keep upright after feeds. There are special anti-reflux formulas that "thicken" the feeding, or alternatively, some docs like the parents to use cereal to thicken the feed. Talk to your ped! congrats on baby! ...Read more

Can I do ferber's sleeping method for my 2 weeks old baby ?

Can I do ferber's sleeping method for my 2 weeks old baby ?

Let baby decide: At 2 weeks of age, your baby needs to decide its sleep/wake cycle. Its body will wake it up as often as it needs to in order to get adequate calorie intake over the course of the day. Don't try to force anyone else's schedule on the baby yet. Right now you need to follow his or her schedule, even if that means getting up every two hours all night long. He or she will sleep longer soon enough. ...Read more
