How many times will my baby go to the bathroom each day?

How many times will my baby go to the bathroom each day?

5-8: Starting around 4 days old babies should have about 5-8 wet diapers a day. Poop is another story. Some breastfeed babies stool after every feed which can be 8 times a day, some breastfed babies stool once every 5 days. As long as the stools are soft, both are fine. Formula fed babies tend to stool 2-5 times a day. When you start solids infants start stooling a little less often. ...Read more

A few rules: Get a good quality, double pump, better to pump both breasts if your pump is a double, otherwise, as soon as milk stops in one breast, pump the and switch back and forth 2-3 times. Highest milk in the morning, lowers in the evening, it takes time to get used to pumping, so don't be discouraged if you don't get much milk initially, be consistent and pump regularly, check pump station.Com. ...Read more

Up to baby: Handling more complex textures like stage ii food is a skill set that takes time to learn. So follow baby's cues. If she seems like she wants more , give her more. If she pulls away or gags or coughs on stage ii, stop feeding. Never force a spoon in to her mouth either. ...Read more

How many hours a day should my baby be sleeping?

How many hours a day should my baby be sleeping?

12-18 hours usually: Babies sleep almost 16-20 hours when first born, so in theory they could do nothing but eat and sleep and they'd be fine. As they get a little older, that can go down, but generally 12 to 16 hours is a normal level. The real question is, how are they when they are awake? If alert, happy, and energetic, then they are doing fine. ...Read more

How to destress quickly, when one has a lot going on in a day..? Sometime it seems i don't have time to breath during the day, what can I do to relax?

Prioritize: There's only 24 hours in a day, 6-8 hours of which is for sleep, the rest is for work, physical and mental activities. At work, you have to space yourself. If you're tired or exhausted, stop working and do some slow deep breathing, neck/stretching exercise, look at nice imagery or just close your eyes and think of nothing. Our mind and body is like a car. We need stops and break every now & then. ...Read more

Please find a urologist to provide good options available for you. ...Read more
