The number of ounces gradually increases as the baby grows older and the feedings gradually space out longer. Ask again with the specifics of baby's age and we can help more. ...Read more

Why is my baby feeding less often?

Why is my baby feeding less often?

Not a growth spurt: Babies go through growth spurts, in which they seem to eat all the time, and then slower periods of growth during which they do not seem to be as hungry. You might worry if your baby isn't feeding because she doesn't seem to feel good, is lethargic, or has fever or trouble breathing. If she looks and acts healthy, it may be a temporary slowdown in her growth. She may be eating more per feed, too. ...Read more

What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?

What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?

Efficency: It's more efficient to breast feed than to pump & then bottle-feed. You also avoid any risk of less than perfectly sterile bottles causing the milk to carry an infection. In addition, baby's nursing tends to trigger you to produce more milk than pumping. That said, having breast fed both my kids, pumping when I was away & nursing when I was with baby was a very effective compromise. ...Read more

Breast milk is a well-designed food source compared to formula, where more debris is left over after processing. Bottle babies usually go at least daily if not more often. If it is soft when they go it is considered ok, even if delayed. ...Read more

Just in case breast feeding baby emergency if my 3 month old in an emergency can not nurse from mother what kind of milk would I have to buy that would not hurt her.

Just in case breast feeding baby emergency if my 3 month old in an emergency can not nurse from mother what kind of milk would I have to buy that would not hurt her.

Any : Any infant under one year of age if not breastfeeding or drinking expressed breastmilk in a bottle should be supplemented with infant formula made for ages 0-12months. There are a variety of brands available for you to choose from. As long as it states it's for infants 0-12months of age it will suffice. You can start with any milk based formula, and if baby has trouble tolerating it (diarrhea, increasing gas or fussiness) a soy based infant formula can be tried. In this case I would recommend to seek the advice of your child's pediatrician or family doctor.
Remember breast milk is recommended for infants under 1, however that is not always possible, and formula is a great second choice.
Keep up the good work mom! ...Read more
