Will my pain medication after birth affect my babies feeding?

Will my pain medication after birth affect my babies feeding?

Depends: Most prescribed or recommended by an experienced OB will have little effect on baby. Even those with some hydrocodone will not pass into the milk in enough quantity to bother baby if used cautiously.Some sedation would be expected if you use the maximum amount prescribed. I've seen one baby admitted for low body temperature and weakness when hydrocodone containing med was taken every 4 hr. ...Read more

My 2 month old baby has suddenly stop taking breastfeeding.But he is having  formula.Whenever i try to give him breast feed he starts crying. ?

Keep trying: To have the formula from a bottle is easier for a baby because of the nipple opening is wider. It's much harder for them to get a milk from the breast. Keep on trying to breastfeed prior to the supplement infant with a formula. Be patient. ...Read more

I breastfeeding my baby he has 12 month and i'm pregnant in 6 weeks .Can i breastfeed my baby because he don't want to stop breastfeeding ?

Yes: You face the simple decision on how far into the pregnancy you want to bf or to just overlap.If this is a good nurturing time you both enjoy, continue.If you find yourself chasing baby down to feed & s/he makes it short & quickly gets off it is time to wean.The older baby is less likely to feel displaced/lost if he has moved on to a big boy feeding.Consult with your local la leche league chapter. ...Read more

Will motherlove breast milk increasing pill help keep my breastmilk abundant even when i go 6 hours without breastfeeding? ( baby is almost 3 months)

100% unproven: I am going to answer 100% honestly, which I hope is what you want: there is absolute zero proof that these products do anything at all to increase breast milk. Look at their website, they even SAY the product is unproven. I recommend save your money and follow recommended nursing plans, talk with a lactation counselor, etc...These products do not help. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why  are infants advised to stop drinking formula at 12 months? What can happen of my baby starts drinking cow milk at 11 months?

Misunderstanding: Cow's milk is allowed at 12 months but this doesn't mean formula has to be stopped at 12 months. A protein in the cow's milk called "heat labile protein" causes occult bleeding from infants' intestine and results in anemia. The intestinal mucosa become more resistant to the protein by 12 moths of age. ...Read more

Can I take hairfinity vitamins while breast feeding my 10 month old baby?

Can I take hairfinity vitamins while breast feeding my 10 month old baby?

Overall the opinion: is No you do not need to be taking Hair vitamins while you are lactating, though any harmful effects on the baby is not immediately known. It IS known that any vitamins you take while breastfeeding WILL be transferred to the baby, especially the fat soluble ones (ADEK). Most women grow hair faster while they are pregnant or lactating anyway as part of the natural effects of progesterone. ...Read more

My sister is amlost 5 months pregnant and started smoking again. What can happen to her unborn baby?

Increased problems: The infant of a smoker will see their placental blood vessels age faster & start to shrink, reducing their blood flow & cutting their birth weight by 1/2 lb or more. They will have a higher risk of crib death, 2-3x as many ear & lung infections. They will grow up wanting to smoke because their source people do. Interesting legacy to give someone you are supposed to love. ...Read more
