How Frequently Should My Infant Go To The Bathroom
4-6 hr minimum: Babies usually urinate every 2-4 hours, and may have a bowel movement every feeding. If you are concerned that your child is not getting enough to eat, this is a good guideline to follow. Bottle fed and breast fed infants have different stool patterns and consistencies;. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
: If everything has been fine during your pregnancy, none of the complications mentioned below are present and you don't have a history of fast labors, waiting is fine. Remember that the membranes that break are a protective layer for your baby, so it is still better to get to the hospital within a couple of hours of the bag of waters breaking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Solve the cause: The question is why are you going to the bathroom? It may be as simple as drinking too much fluids before bed. Other reasons could be a urinary track infection, enlarged prostate, overactive bladder, pregnancy or possibly sleep apnea. Medications can also cause you to have to urinate as a main effect or side effect. If a trial of fluid restriction doesn't help, see your primary care doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How often should I bottle feed my baby and how much is the volume every feeding? In the middle of the night, should I wake her up to feed?
Yes: The purpose of a colonoscopy is to look at the entire inner lining of the colon. The cleaner the colon is the better the results of the test. Bowel prepping - taking a prescribed laxative to clean out the colon - induces diarrhea. The idea is to get everything out of the colon so your doctor can visulaize as much of the colon as possible. I often recommend desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) to help protect the skin! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How do you potty train a difficult child? Our son turned 4 in november, and is still in pullups. He will sit on the toilet and pee right before his bath, but refuses to poop on the toilet, and will not tell us when he has to go other than to sit on the to
Boys : Boys do tend to potty train later than girls. I hear terms like "difficult child" and "refuses to poop". My guess is that he picks up on this vibe as well. Sometimes if pushed too hard, a child will push back or will hold back. How about reading the "potty book" to him. There are some wonderful potty videos that are fun for kids to watch. If you can make this fun and get him invested, he may be more likely to play along. If he is pressured and faces anger, he is more likely to hold on to it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Breast or formula ?: 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. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools. 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

Reply: If the baby is born after 38weeks of pregnancy then weight is usually not the criteria for discharge from hospital unless other.Usual discharge is 3 days after a c- section and 2 days after vaginal delivery. Doctors make sure that baby is feeding well, has passed urine and first stool and observe for jaundice. Usually babies loose weight during the first week rather gaining, due to water loss. ...Read more
Plan Ahead: You are usually not able to bring other children to the delivery suite during labor, nor would you be able to care for them and manage them. Make a plan as delivery nears to have a friend, relative, or other caregiver available and "on call" to take your children when you need to go to the hospital for delivery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son holds in his urine and poop when I try to make him sit at the potty, what can I do to fix this?
Try another tack: Rehersal is an important part of potty training & learning where equipment is & practicing diaper off sitting is important early in the process. After a toddler acquires these skills it is time to back off and become the potty assistant, not the potty commander. Tell baby you will help them when they need to go and mean it. Let them pick the time & respond immediately. They may need help only once. ...Read more
Try once a day: Introducing your expressed breast milk once a day is not a bad idea once nursing is well established. One good time of the day to try things out would be during a nighttime feeding. That may help to give you just a little break for a while. This is also a good opportunity for dad to get involved in the feeding/bonding experience with your newborn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
