Oral ulcer: 1st you should take your baby to his pediatrician, until then to comfort him apply baby orajel to the ulcer before feeding, even tylenol (acetaminophen) if have to, you can also feed him with a dropper if he can't suck. Make sure he stays hydrated. Good luck.

4 months old baby drinking formula milk haven t ave a bowl movement in a week. What should I do?

See below: If the child is bottle fed mostly, replace one bottle a day with a baby juice like prune, pear, etc. The increased sugar content in the juice and other components should start to soften the stool. As a last resort if the child is straining to push out a stool, a piece of a glycerin suppository placed in the rectum can help the stool to slide out.

Keep asking: There are a lot of questions here. Is the baby taking more than 20 minutes to finish? Is there sweating while he is drinking? Does the milk contact his skin while drinking? More data is needed to help answer your question. I'm sorry.

Four month old boy weight's 7.8kg height 67cm Everyone says he is fat He is on combination feeding. Amount of Formula milk given to him is16oz a day.

Four month old boy weight's 7.8kg height 67cm Everyone says he is fat He is on combination feeding. Amount of Formula milk given to him is16oz a day.

Weight & height: Your baby's weight & height are both on the 95th percentile on the growth chart which means he is big allover. He is overweight & tall for his age but compatible with his height. 16 oz of formual a day is not much but he is on breat feeding too, try not to feed him before 4 hours, also feed him before you sleep at night until the morning, this way you both can sleep through the night. Good luck

Can a four month old baby drink juice?

Can a four month old baby drink juice?

Feeding baby: There are different opinions for when to introduce foods to your baby. Early introduction of some foods may cause reactions. It is best to go with your doctor's recommendation. It is very common to start cereal after 3 months and fruit at 4. Veggies at 5 mos and meat at 6. Do not start more than one new food per week to see if there are any reactions. Juice would be considered a fruit.

What food other than milk can be given to a 4 month old baby?

What food other than milk can be given to a 4 month old baby?

Milk Only: This child is months too young for anything but milk. Please do not give this child food or anything besides their mild or formula. Your baby doctor will have the recommended schedule for when adding food is safe. Food too soon leads to a lifetime weakness in their immunities and to an elevated risk for obesity.

Not sure: Was there a reason that you stopped breastfeeding- were you on a medication, or sick? If so, one of those factors could have changed the taste of the breast milk. Also, some babies, when they take formula in a bottle, figure out that it's easier than the breast and may prefer it. Keep trying, but don't panic. Experiment. Maybe some breast milk in the bottle first and then switch to the breast?

I have a 4 month old who spits up a lot (reflux) but has recently started spitting up foamy milk/saliva. Is this something to be concerned about?

I have a 4 month old who spits up a lot (reflux) but has recently started spitting up foamy milk/saliva. Is this something to be concerned about?

Not necessarily: The content of the spit up will vary with the stage of digestion that is interrupted by the reflux event. The appearance will also vary with feeding content. This does not mean things have taken a turn for the worse. I find the regular infant reflux peaks naturally as they begin to roll over (4-5m) & begins to subside when they begin sitting up (6-9m).

My wife is diagnosed with kidney stones so after medication milk from breasts is not coming. I have a 4 month old baby. Please suggest fr breast milk?

Pump or nursing?: Check with the prescribing MD to see if medication can be the cause. At four months many women's breasts reduce in size but still produce adequate milk. PUMPS use vacuum pressure to get milk out and in some it can become less and less effective. The baby nursing works the nipples differently and they can usually work the milk down. Good urine output indicates baby is getting the milk. No? See MD

My 5 month old baby isn't drinking much of her milk. She is really grouchey and hasn't put on any weight in 2 weeks. Is she alright?

My 5 month old baby isn't drinking much of her milk. She is really grouchey and hasn't put on any weight in 2 weeks. Is she alright?

Needs to be seen: I think you should contact your baby's primary care provider and have her examined. The combination of being grouchy and not wanting to drink her milk could be a sign of an ear infection or some other process. That she hasn't gained weight in 2 weeks is not as concerning given that she hasn't been drinking as well and babies will sometimes hit plateaus at this age.

What kind of milk can my 12-month-old drink?

What kind of milk can my 12-month-old drink?

Whole milk.: If you are breastfeeding, you may choose to continue breastfeeding or wean your baby now. When a child is 1 year old, you can start using whole milk. Almost all toddlers need the calories of whole milk (not low-fat or skim) until they are 2 years old. Some children have harder bowel movements at first with whole milk. Limit whole milk to a maximum of 24 ounces per day.

How many ounces a day of milk/formula should an 11 month old be drinking?

How many ounces a day of milk/formula should an 11 month old be drinking?

16-24oz: I like to limit kids in the age group to 16-24 oz/day so they will explore the other foods you will offer at this age. For cow milk specifically, excess intake can lead to intestinal bleeding & anemia or the "milk baby" syndrome of a kid who won't take anything else. I've had some years ago that needed blood transfusions.
