Teach your baby: You are teaching your child what is correct behavior as well as reinforcing certain behaviors depending upon your actions. If you always respond to your child crying, that will teach the child to cry to get what he wants. If you are putting your child to bed and he cries it is best to respond so that you know the baby is ok, but then to put the baby back to bed by itself when appropriate. ...Read more

Why has my bottle-fed baby started to refuse the bottle?
Baby can go 6-8hr not drinking. He will only take when he is sleeping. Only 4month old
Feeding a sleeping: Baby is a bit dangerous, as baby's head needs to be up 30 degrees to prevent reflux of formula into the middle ears, a risk for infections.

My 4month old has had cradle cap since 3months. All home & over counter remedies have failed to help. What else can I do/use? Can our dr give anything

What to do if I have a 4 month old baby boy, I was doing bf continually but quit for some days now he refuses my milk. I do?
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? ...Read more

No worries, but...: There are many Lactobacillus types, and various studies have tried amounts of 1-10 billion CFUs (colony forming units) in babies, without seeing any bad side effects. That being said, there is seldom much research that one can find on one particular brand or strain of Lactobacillus use in babies... so no worries, but "user beware". ...Read more
