I am 23 and I tried to gain weight but it is hopeless, would babies cerelac work?

Not hopeless: You could have a problem absorbing food. Avoiding lactose and gluten might help. Also avoid alcohol, tobacco products, and processed food. Read kelly mcgonigal's the will power instinct to learn to mange stress skillfully and make healthy life style changes. Healthy fresh vegetables, fruit, high quality protein, good fats, and starches, a good night sleep, and exercise aerobic and resistive helps.

Hi Dr is cerelac good for baby or homemade khicihd a better option?

Hi Dr is cerelac good for baby or homemade khicihd a better option?

Baby food questions: The best foods for human babies is human breast milk, not only nutritionally (protein, fats, carbs, Vitamins, minerals, water) but also biologically (antibodies transferred from mom to infant). Some women cannot or won't breast feed so commercial formulas are available. In general, those are better for infant than homemade because infant kidneys can be overwhelmed by high solute loads up until about 2yr

Is it ok for my child a 5month old to eat once a day a cerelac wheat? .

Is it ok for my child a 5month old to eat once a day a cerelac wheat? .

Wheat cereal: At this age he may eat wheat cereal once a day. It is not advised for younger children because it can cause allergic reactions such as vomiting, diarrhea, colicky pain or skin rashes. If any of these symptoms affect your child, I would stop and try feeding cereal one or two months later.

Hi. Is cerelac safe for my 6th month old baby? How many times a day can I give him? Thank you very much.

Starting solid food: We start with plain rice cereal mixed with baby formula to be given with spoon. Make it the consistency of sauce and feed the baby. It make take some time for him to get used to it. You may start once a day and then can go to twice a day too. Check what's the contents of cerelac.

This is not enough: 7 months old baby need to be on 3 scheduled meals everyday: breakfast, lunch and dinner and take at least 720 - 960 ml formula per day to meet her/his energy requirement for growth.

7 month baby suddenly fussy generally especially during feeding. ..what can be causes.. she's on cerelac and formula feed...wants to be held?

7 month baby suddenly fussy generally especially during feeding. ..what can be causes.. she's on cerelac and formula feed...wants to be held?

Shd see doctor: Sudden fussiness in a 7 month old may suggest an infection somewhere and the fact that she is more fussy during feedings suggests that it may be an ear infection. Fever is not a reliable sign in this age group and so have the baby checked.

Can I give my 4 month old baby a rice cerelac?

Can I give my 4 month old baby a rice cerelac?

Solids ok at 4-6 mo: Most infants thrive on exclusively breast or formula feeding until at least 4 months, and many are very content until almost 6 months. At that time, it is a good idea to start with cereal, either rice or oatmeal that is iron fortified, in addition to the milk feedings. Esp if your infant has been sleeping through the night and now is starting night wakings, a late afternoon supplement works well.

Is it suitable to give cerelac to twin baby 4 months old?

Is it suitable to give cerelac to twin baby 4 months old?

Too early: Not recommended until about 6 months, even then, should use small amount. Main nourishment for babies during the first year of life is breast milk or baby formula when breastfeeding is not feasible. Speak with your healthcare provider to determine what is best for your babies.

Can I feed rice cerelac to my baby suffering from diarrhea?

Can I feed rice cerelac to my baby suffering from diarrhea?

Yes: Yes, but it may not improve things greatly. Most feeding experts recommend solids between 4-7 mos. If you have started solids, rice cereal may slow down the GI tract. However, it may not. Consider using probiotics (get them from your pharmacist). If you child shows signs of dehydration or this goes on beyond 2 weeks, then have your child evaluated.

Can I give my baby solid food at four months? Like cerelac and bescuit?

Can I give my baby solid food at four months? Like cerelac and bescuit?

Maybe: In general this is an individual question as it does not apply to all. In the days before baby food these were the only options we had. In general as long as the baby can safely swallow digestible food you should be safe. Please ask your pediatrician for further guidance before attempting.

Hi! . my baby is now 5 months old and she is g6pd. What milk formula is safe for her? .... Is cerelac flavoured wheat, banana and milk are safe for her? ..

Hi! . my baby is now 5 months old and she is g6pd. What milk formula is safe for her? .... Is cerelac flavoured wheat, banana and milk are safe for her? ..

Ok to start solids: It is ok to start cereal by 4-6 months, but because wheat allergy is common, rice or oatmeal is usually recommended as a first cereal. The type with added fruit and milk is ok. Continue the same infant formula until your child is close to a year old. To give variety, add a different vegetable to the feedings once a week, unless there is a reaction, like rash or vomiting or diarrhea.
