Should I feed my baby bottle milk or give him food before he sleep?

Should I feed my baby bottle milk or give him food before he sleep?

Better If Not: Young infants generally will sleep better with a late feeding. The sooner you can help the baby fall asleep without a feeding, the easier in the long run.I am not aware of any evidence one way or the other, but i think by a year of age a baby does not need a bedtime feeding to sleep through the night. The sooner you eliminate the bedtime feeding the better. ...Read more

Is it ok to feed my baby cow's milk?

Is it ok to feed my baby cow's milk?

No: The aap recommends not introducing cow's milk to your infant until his/her 1st birthday. For the first year of life, the ideal liquid is breast milk. If your infant is not breast-feeding, using formula is recommended. Formula is iron and vitamin fortified, where cow's milk has no iron. The milk protein load in cow's milk is too high for infants and can upset their belly. ...Read more

I always feed my baby off the breast that produces less milk and still see it smaller than the other one how can I get both of them the same size?

Breastfeeding: A breast that is not suckled as often will start producing less milk causing it to reduce in size. Does your baby latch on well, seems satisfied after nursing and adequately gaining weight, otherwise? If so, the only problem is cosmetic on your part; you can easily devise means to make the size of the breasts appear the same. ...Read more
