Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

No: Generally, once an infant starts to sleep through the night (around 2 months) it is not necessary to wake the baby up to feed him/her, assuming the baby feeds well during the day, is wetting several diapers a day, appears healthy, and is growing well. It is important not to interrupt a healthy baby's sleep/wake cycle. ...Read more

Have a 3 month old baby, formula feed & has had 15 dirty diaper between 2 days. Is that normal?

Have a 3 month old baby, formula feed & has had 15 dirty diaper between 2 days. Is that normal?

I assume: you mean by "dirty diaper" diapers containing stool. 7 or 8 stools per day may not be unusual, but if it is a big change from previously, you should take your baby to her pediatrician. If she is making fewer urine soaked diapers, it could mean she's dehydrated and needs prompt evaluation. ...Read more

Stuffy nose: Your baby has a stuffy nose making it difficult for him to feed. Before feeding take a bulb syringe and suck out as much mucus as you can. Then use salt water nose drops to clear his nostrils you might want to wear a mask while feeding and make sure you wash hands before feeding baby. ...Read more

Can i change my 6 month old babys formula feed from nan pro 1 to nan pro 2?..how much ml will a 6 month old require for a feed

By 6 months , a baby: typically consumes 6 to 8 ounces (180–240 ml) at each of four or five feedings in twenty-four hours. Since NAN PRO 2 is sold in the U.S., it must have FDA approval for use in 6-12 month old babies.

My 4 month old baby is formula feed he has a virus vomiting  dr said to keep giving him fluids what should I do with giving him formula?

Vomiting: The first thing to do is break the cycle of vomiting. Give small, frequent amounts of pedialyte- start with 1/2 oz and increase gradually every 1/2 hour. If that works, after 3-4 hours, you can gradually offer small amounts of formula. Go slowly and don't rush it. If the vomiting persists, call your doctor again. ...Read more

14 month old baby boy.breast feeding he still wakes up multiple times at night and feeds.have never slept entire night wirh out disturbance. Reasons?

You trained him to: A 14 month old does not need to feed at night. He may eat less during the day and pattern a need at night, but only because you let him.He likely enjoys the nurturing during the period of separation anxiety normal to all at that age. Either continue indefinitely, or end night feeds. You may need to sleep in a chair nearby until he can accept a new pattern at night. ...Read more

Doctor can check: The doctor can check the baby to see if the baby is fine or is constipated. Some babies do not poop every day, while others are having problems and need to poop more often than that. Generally, as long as a baby is normal in eating, growth, and development; and does not have firm poop, bloating, or tummy aches; then the number of poops per day is not very important. ...Read more

How much time should baby feed. My 2 months old baby is feeding for 5 minutes in every hour. Is it ok or something to worry.

Volume is important: The amount of time is irrelevant how much volume are they getting. If you are breast feeding are they gaining weight? If your bottle feeding how much formula are they drinking per day and are they gaing weight, too much weight? Discuss this with your child's physician. If they are gaining normal amount of weight and staying on their growth curve ther is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Should my 3 months old baby be feeding every 3 hours? She's excusively breast feed

Should my 3 months old baby be feeding every 3 hours? She's excusively breast feed

More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well.After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs.This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep. Removing feeds from the sleep ritual alows them to learn to self settle. ...Read more

Adenoid or reflux: He might be having some reflux into his throat or back of nose which is usually worse during feeding or laying down. A large adenoid could also cause similar symptoms. As long as he breathes through his nose, doesn't snore, feeds without coughing or choking, it should be ok to watch. See md if concerned. ...Read more

How do I keep 3 month old baby from dislodging NG feeding tube?

How do I keep 3 month old baby from dislodging NG feeding tube?

Tape or a dressing: It is best to use tape or a dressing to guide the tube away from the nose and out of the way of the hands. Tucking the tube into the child's clothes may prevent it from being snagged when you are moving the baby. Be sure to learn how to replace the NG tube or consult your doctor if you need help putting it back into place. ...Read more

My 2 month old baby sometimes cries after feedings when he is well fed as if he wants more but when I give move he spits up??

Reading signals: It is easy to assume a baby is hungry if they are willing to take more.However, babies suck often to self sooth and this can be when they are full. Babies are even born with sucking blisters on their hands showing they did so while getting fed through the placenta. Many babies are just tired and suck to self settle. Their crying is often fatigue and not understanding if they sleep it goes away. ...Read more

When can we introduce our 3 month old baby to the bottle feeding? We fear that bottle feeding might bring the chances for infection. Plz suggest

Now: You can introduce a bottle as soon as breast feeding is well established- i usually recommend at about one month of age. Its helpful if someone other than mom feeds the baby the bottle and if mom leaves the house so the baby won't cry to nurse instead! to decrease chance of infection make sure you clean and sterilize (in boiling water) the bottle equipment. Clean after each use. ...Read more

My four month old baby is on combination feeding .formula feeds(enfamil) 4 ounces three or four times a day plus breast feed is it too much?

Formula &breast fed: The amount of formula your baby is getting is not too much, I can't judge how much he gets from breast feeding, if the baby is gaining weight within the expected range, being content & happy then you're on the right track. Your pediatrician will discuss the baby's growth during every well visit. You can discuss your concerns with him. Good luck, enjoy your bundle of joy. ...Read more
