Is It Better To Feed My Baby More At Night Or In The Morning
Feed on demand: Early on it is best to feed on demand...Meaning feed the baby as often as the baby wants. Start very early however in establishing a bedtime routine. Bath, breast, bed. Bathe the baby, breastfeed and then immediately put the baby to bed. Lights out, people out of room, etc. It may take a while for your baby to get the message but if you stick with it the baby learns to fall asleep on its own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Some babies, particularly those who were more active in the womb at night may have their circadian rhythm reversed and will be more active and hungry at night. As the baby becomes more interactive with the environment this usually changes. If this pattern is persistent i recommend the parents move to a more appropriate time zone(just kidding!). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it wrong or dangerous for a pregnant in the 9th month to take iron capsules at night and if it is better to take them in the morning ?

And, if you evacuate your bladder during the night that another pound of water (400cc.)good luck. ...Read more

Is it safe to have fruits at night, or is it advisable to have it only before the night sets in..
My newborn is sleeping all the time not even waking up for feeding when i try to feed him he uses my breast as a pacifier for a few minutes and sleeps?
My body puts off lots of heat. It makes it uncomfortable to hold my wifes hand. To lay next to her at night is out of the question. I wake up at night within the first 2 hours of sleep drenched in sweat no matter the temperature even using a fan.
Yes: Make sure it is safe and the appropriate size for your baby. Check the mattress, as many models of travel cribs provide a very thin one. Many online vendors sell the thicker travel crib mattresses that may be more comfortable for your baby. Avoid anything else in the crib like pillows, blankets a baby may become entangled in and toys. Check always for recalls and safety issues with your crib. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
