Gassy Baby: 28 yo lady with 3 month old infant feeding well but with a lot of gas. Studies show that when your baby is gassy, she may be intolerant to something in the formula or in the diet of the breastfeeding mother. Does your baby get good sleep? If your baby is fussy, inconsolable, or draws its knees into its chest while crying it may be a sign of pain. Please bring your baby for full exam. Good luck. ...Read more

Can my 5 mo old baby eat food and drink water? Sometimes i'm worried about her feeding, she is on formula 4/5 oz every 3 hours

Can my 5 mo old baby eat food and drink water? Sometimes i'm worried about her feeding, she is on formula 4/5 oz every 3 hours

Sounds normal: Studies show that breast milk or formula alone supplies balanced nutrition for the first year +. Most early solid feeding pressure comes from the days babies were fed home made blends of boiled cow milk/karo & vitamins.At the time early supplements made sense, now they are overdone.Starting should focus on training baby to sit up & eat in preparation for his/her position at the table. ...Read more

Why do infants cluster feed during breastfeeding? How to get through it easily? It can be frustrating. Sometimes baby wants to eat every hour for 5 hr

A TestofYour Breasts: Well, if it's a baby boy, it needs no explanation. But overall, this is not a worrisome event. Probably means that the baby is taking in small amounts intermittently either due to low milk flow or small swallows or both. Best not to worry and use it as a time to "bond" with him (or her). Usually ends my 1-3 months. If it doesn't or if there are obvious problems feeding, check with your doctor ...Read more

Yes!: As long as your baby is growing well, & pooping and peeing regularly, then he may not need to eat every 4 hours. Those recommendations are good guidelines but every baby is unique! kudos to you for exclusively breastfeeding him! it is a hard job & has so many health benefits for both of you. Hopefully you will be able to continue to 6 (or even 12 months). ...Read more

What should I feed my two to four month old baby?

What should I feed my two to four month old baby?

"fruits": A two month old does not need anything other than formula or breast milk. The exception being a child with significant reflux needing cereal. Other than that consider starting solids at/after 4 months.. From four months to a year a child will benefit from "fruits" which is any food that starts as a flower. This includes beans and other "vegetables". It has to do with digestive enzymes. ...Read more
