I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

Breast milk: Many pediatricians and pediatiric clinics assign the diagnosis of "foor allergies" as a cause of "colic" or poor feeding by an infant. It is possible that no "true allergies" have occurred, and if your infant is thriving (putting on predicted weight) it is unlikely that your breast milk is creating a problem.

Can my baby choke on my breast milk while breastfeeding?

Can my baby choke on my breast milk while breastfeeding?

Sometimes: I've seen, on occasion, moms who produce a lot of milk very quickly, and the flow is too much for the baby. We once asked a mom of a choking baby to pump her breast in order to see how much was coming out, and she pumped 10oz from one breast in about 10 minutes. If your flow is like that, pump some off first to decrease the flow/amount. If not, see you pediatrician about swallowing problems. ...Read more

How can I dry my breast milk, i want to quit breastfeeding because I have to work?

Several options: You can start to wean your baby by offering 1-2 bottle feedings a day, gradually increasing the bottle feedings as he weans away from the breast. If you need to stop suddenly, you may have more fullness for a few days, but it will decrease when there is not the stimulation of nursing. If you wish, you can still breast feed in the evening and other times, while giving the bottle when you work. ...Read more
