It also could be caused by mastitis (infection of the breast) or a yeast infection. If heat and massage don't help, you should be seen by your doctor. ...Read more

My 2 month old daughter is drinking 1 oz at a time ever 2 hours and no breastfeeding. She tickle  cough 5-6 times a day.is it normal or need to worry?

Calories taken in: are ounces of formula times 20 calories per ounce so she is taking 12 ounces which represents 240 calories.

Better still is to see how many wet diapers she has in a day. If at least five then she is getting adequate fluids. ...Read more
