Stuffy nose syndrome: It has nothing to do with what you eat. Babies breath through their noses and get a lot of mucous in their nose. If the room in which they sleep, is too hot or very dry the problem can get worse. Use the bulb syringe that was given to you at birth and as suggested saline nose drops.A room temp of 68 degrees is good and humidity should be between25-30 percent. ...Read more

My husband wants to try to 'breastfeed' the baby and do kangaroo care. Is that ok? I heard there was some device he can wear.

My husband wants to try to 'breastfeed' the baby and do kangaroo care. Is that ok? I heard there was some device he can wear.

Whatever suits Dad!: The technigue you are referring to is "skin to skin" contact. It is known as kangaroo care. It is done immediately after birth (if stable) and the father part was invented in columbia in 1979 for low birth weight infants. The body heat and contact with a breathing/heart beating parent enhances bonding, breastfeeding and milk production. ...Read more

If nipples are for breastfeeding a baby, so why do men have them?

If nipples are for breastfeeding a baby, so why do men have them?

It's embryology: All humans start off as essentially female in the womb no matter what your chromosome arrangement is. After several weeks, if you have a Y chromosome, testosterone kicks in and it changes the chemistry in the genitals and the brain. But the nipples are already there...so they stay. ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, i would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding. ...Read more

Could you tell me if males do not breast feed, then why in the world do they have nipples?

Basic template: It may surprise you but without the influence of the male derived hormone signals in fetal development a male would develop all female parts. There are also females that have altered "male like" genital formation when the hormonal messages get mixed up. The basic answer is we all start out with the same template of tissues, and the signals determine where we go from there. ...Read more

Nipple shield: Assuming your profile is incorrect and you are truly a breastfeeding woman, milk production should increase by maximizing effective nursing ( and possibly using fenugreek supplements). Babies can latch onto flat nipples much better when mothers use nipple shields. These devices are generally sold without prescriptions at pharmacies. ...Read more
