Most babies will transition in a few days. ...Read more

Switch to a diet cola made with stevia. Second best splenda. Then wean yourself to h2o. ...Read more

I breastfeed my 16 months son. Now i want to stop breastfeeding. How do I do this? He can't fell asleep without sucking.. Any suggestions?

I breastfeed my 16 months son. Now i want to stop breastfeeding. How do I do this?  He can't fell asleep without sucking.. Any suggestions?

Change pattern: Initially you should change any breast feeds to when he wakes and limit the effort to a few minutes on a side. As he tires, do not offer the breast or any other feed. The ritual should help him wind down. A warm bath may set the mood followed by reading to him from a few feet away. Try to eliminate direct contact as he settles so he can learn to do it alone ; will do so if he awakes in the night. ...Read more

What can I do if my baby will not stop throwing food?

What can I do if my baby will not stop throwing food?

Try another approach: If a baby throws food, he may just be playing. When he is really hungry, re-approach him and eat with him, to show that food is for eating. If he throws food because he is angry, the parent can "disappear" and watch the baby from behind, and then come back to try again a few minutes later. When a baby is truly hungry, he is less likely to throw the food away. ...Read more

My 3 months baby hasnt-pooped-in-2-day-is-breast-fed what can i do ??? Help

Breast feeds: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it. Babies fuss for a lot of reasons including gas, so irregularity is not always the cause. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read more

I have the hiccups when I drink a lot, how do I make them stop?

I have the hiccups when I drink a lot, how do I make them stop?

Don't drink a lot: Not to sound like a wise-guy here, but the obvious solution and the safest way is to don't drink a lot. Alcohol is a part of life and it is accepted in every society in moderation. But when using it to excess, it can cause much trouble for the person and his/her family/friends, and a potential danger to others (driving drunk). So, drink responsibly. Be safe, be well, be alive. Good luck. ...Read more
