Hi. I know that raw cabbage is not recommended for lactating mothers. Will fried cabbage (onion, broccoli) affect my baby?

It can: Cabbage is one of the bigger no-no's, raw or cooked, as well as cruciferous veggies (broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus), onions, garlic, caffeine, spicy foods, and large amounts of dairy or tomatoes. Not everything affects everybody though, and some are affected by weird things, like almonds or even the gas drops themselves. ...Read more

Can lactating mothers take Flagyl?

Can lactating mothers take Flagyl?

AAP & Flagyl: Metronidazole (Flagyl) is rated by the AAP as a drug whose effect on infants is unknown, but it may be of concern because older studies found its use in pregnancy to be associated with mutagenicity. Nevertheless, the amount transferred to the infant through breast milk is much lower than the therapeutic dosage for infants, and no adverse effects have been reported from exposure through breast milk ...Read more

What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?

What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?

Haven't heard data: Haven't heard any data on that. Since milk production is a living process, it is reasonable to suspect that the lactose (a combination of glucose & galactose sugars) might increase if mom's blood glucose rises above a certain excessive level, and to suspect that glucose might "leak" into breastmilk if mom's glucose level is over some threshold level. Don't know if any researcher has milk this way. ...Read more

Bonding,: I've assisted adoptive mom lactate; all felt it enhanced bonding. Adoptive moms who lactate don't usually have an adequate breast milk supply and will need to supplement with formula, which can be given via a supplemental nutrition device taped to mom's nipple, so baby receives breast milk and formula simultaneously. May reduce breast cancer, in post partum-wgt loss, shrink uterus. Congrats! ...Read more

What is the oldest age at which it is safe to be a mother?

What is the oldest age at which it is safe to be a mother?

Becoming Pregnant: Medicine does not answer this question in the way you ask. Until a female is no longer fertile (has gone into menopause) she is able to become pregnant.

Is black mama fat burner is safe?

Is black mama fat burner is safe?

From what I can: Discover the answer is "no." Information available online suggests Black MamBa contains multiple stimulants including caffeine, synephrine and, of most concern, ephedra. Not only do these stimulants cause unpleasant side effects--feeling hyper and jittery--but ephedra has been banned for use in diet products by the FDA. Plus its effectiveness is unproved. Save your money; stay well. ...Read more

Does a baby remain safe even if the expecting mother does not eat much?

Does a baby remain safe even if the expecting mother does not eat much?

In a normal pregnancy, you only need an extra 300 calories per day in the third trimester from what you would normally eat when you are not pregnant. In spite of popular belief, you are not really "eating for two". ...Read more
