How often should you change up your bottles and nipples?

As your baby grows: Newborns generally are most comfortable with a slow flow nipple, but as they get older a faster flow nipple may be better. You can keep using the same bottles, as long as there are no cracks in them. Wash with hot soapy water after each use and sterilize at least once a week if using regularly. ...Read more

Can i mix ors with formula so my baby accept the taste and take it ?or it will change osmolarity and will not function?

Can i mix ors with formula so my baby accept the taste and take it  ?or it will change osmolarity and will not function?

?: You are using the ORS because your baby is having vomiting or diarrhea? I think ORS is best used without mixing with anything for 12-24 hours to maintain hydration and electrolyte balance. If your baby has diarrhea and it has slowed down, you may then want to introduce a lactose free formula and see how it is tolerated. Monitor your baby's wet diapers, tears and skin tone. See Dr. as needed. ...Read more

~12 months: ~ 12 months of life is a good time to change to whole milk (VIt D, red capped).

Is it normal to wake up with blood all over your pants? Does this have something to do with bulimia?

Not normal: Waking up with blood on your pants can come from multiple causes -- from menstrual period starting in your sleep to many others. If you're bulimic and throwing up blood, yes the blood you found could come from that. In this case you need to see a doctor asap, since you could have injured yourself. If you're not on your period, you still need to learn where the blood came from. ...Read more

How frequently do you see bradycardia with barbiturate toxicity and how would you speed it up back to normal?

How frequently do you see bradycardia with barbiturate toxicity and how would you speed it up back to normal?

It is common: and there is no reason to "speed it up to normal" unless the blood pressure is very low. This is not something "you do at home." A barbiturate overdose requires being in an emergency care setting. Breathing can slow down to the point of low oxygen levels and ultimate cardiopulmonary arrest, as well as permanent brain damage. Ventillator support and use of cardiac/BP stimulants may be needed. ...Read more

My infant is starting to spit up during feelings. Do I continue to feed him and how can I help prevent him spitting up?

My infant is starting to spit up during feelings. Do I continue to feed him and how can I help prevent him spitting up?

Feedings and spittin: Hard answer without knowing your infant's age. But are you "burping" your baby after feedings. Babies take in alot of air using bottles and nipples - burping them will reduce the air bubble. Sometimes spitting up is due to formula issues - changing to a non cow's milk formula may help. Gaviscon drops may also help. If the spitting is getting worse - dicuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
