Mom Give Milk To Baby
No: Breast milk is warm and tastes yummy to a baby. So, breast milk should not make a baby fussy. If a baby drinking from the breast seems fussy, but drinking formula seems fine, then the baby might be impatient (try feeding breast milk from a bottle to see what happens). On the other hand, a young baby might fuss on the breast when the let-down occurs because the milk is coming too fast! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional.

Opinion varies: I believe that feeding solids should be done only when a baby is developmentally ready, the solids nutritional content should be balanced in proteins, fats and carbs, the food should not be overly processed as to have an indiscriminate texture, and should exclude honey until a year and true peanut butter until choking is less of a risk. ...Read more
What you eat can: Breast milk won't make babies gassy usually, and most tolerate straight breast milk very well.

I can't breast feed my newborn baby. Is there a way to give him all the antibodies breast milk contains? Is it safe to buy breastmilk?
Not reproducible: Modern science has been unable to re-create human breast milk. If pumping your own breast milk and bottle feeding it is not an option, choosing an infant formula will still give your baby proper nutrition for growth and development. Many infant formulas now have probiotics, felt to be beneficial for the digestive tract. Buying breast milk is a personal decision, but know your source. ...Read more
No rules: There has been much arguing over the years about pacifiers. In the end, though, there are no rules. When you say baby, i assume that you really mean a baby, under a year of age. My rule: if you baby likes sucking on a pacifier, its fine. Eventually, you need to get rid of the pacifier, but that is something to do in the second year of life. ...Read more
