The baby become hot and start to sweat in the head when he drink milk from her mother...What is the main  reason of  sweating?

Doctor visit: When a baby sweats excessively during feeding, this may indicate that they have a lung or heart problem. There may be associated vomiting and gray/blue discoloration of the skin or lips. Your doctor will check the baby's heart for a murmur, his liver for enlargement, and an oxygen saturation level. It is important that you seek the advice of his doctor. I hope that this helps. ...Read more

My child is 1.5 years old and he is not eating anything solid and drinking only milk. Mother thinks it is due to worms in his stomach. Is it possible?

Unlikely: He seems to be getting most of his calories from milk so he is not hungry. He may also have some sensory issues that cause him to have difficulty learning to eat solids. Consultation with a speech pathologist experienced with children can be of great value. Intestinal parasites usually cause significant diarrhea along with weight loss. ...Read more

My mother inlaw, started drinking almond silk in place of milk, due to lactose intolerance. She needs calories, due to weight loss, now she is experiencing diarreah since starting it. Could this be from the silk?

My mother inlaw, started drinking almond silk in place of milk, due to lactose intolerance. She needs calories, due to weight loss, now she is experiencing diarreah since starting it. Could this be from the silk?

Could be...: But there are many causes of diarrhea. If the almond silk is the cause diarrhea should resolve within a few days of stopping it.

Why not drink lactose-free milk? ...Read more

Can milk go into the ears of an infant if you prop them up while drinking a bottle?

Can milk go into the ears of an infant if you prop them up while drinking a bottle?

No.: Babies who are propped up while feeding shouldn't get milk into the ears (gravity will pull the milk down). I would venture to say that most babies are fed at least partially propped up and do just fine! ...Read more

No, if she gets: enough calcium, which is as simple as eating Tums & Vitamin D.
