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

Over feeding? : 2 -3oz is more than enough formula for a 2mo old baby, but 4-5oz is way too much for a baby this young. I suggest you discuss feeding amounts with your baby's doctor - much of this has to do with the baby's size, but clearly, 4-5 oz is not healthy, and should not be given at that volume until the baby is at least 3 or 4 months old. See your Pediatrician for more advice ...Read more

Breast/bottle : This is not unusual. You may find that she will take the bottle more readily from someone else than from you. Let daddy or grandmother try! when she smells your milk, and you are giving her a bottle, she gets confused. Don't worry. Most babies will take a bottle when they are hungry enough and the breast is not available. ...Read more

Hard nipple hurts only one weather change it stays hard

Do : Do not know if you are a man or a woman. If a woman, do not know if you are perimenopausal, post menopausal or if you are in the child bearing years. Don't know if you have had a child or if you have breast fed an infant. Do not know if this is a new change to the nipple or if it has always been this way. Will assume that there is no discharge or fever since it was not mentioned. One nipple could be harder or more tender if there was differential friction on the nipples. Clearly, you indicate that there is a difference between one nipple and the other. I do not know the cause. There could be an infection, a blocked milk duct, a non- malignant tumor or a malignant tumor or this might be related to hormones. If the nipple is hard to the touch, i would recommend that you be evaluated, to ensure that there is not a mass causing it to be hard. ...Read more

Does a breast augmentation change your nipple sensation?

Does a breast augmentation change your nipple sensation?

Yes, temporarily: Often, nipple sensitivity is increased initially. This can be way too much, at first. Within few weeks, this subsides toward normal. Unfortunately, breast augmentation can also cause permanent loss of nipple sensation on one or both sides, due to injury to the nerves in the breast. This is very rare, but, if it happens to you, it is of little conciliation that it happens very infrequently! ...Read more
