Can my 6 1/2 month old have yogurt? The gerber baby brand or any brand?

Not recommended: Yogurt is dairy and dairy can be allergenic in children less than one. Many children haven problems. In general I do not recommend any dairy until after one year. Some formulas are cow milk based as well...If you want to try yogurt just pay attention. If baby gets increased congestion, mucous, skin issues, diarrhea, eczema, ear infections after starting ..It is too much....Stop. ...Read more

New mom of 3 week old baby has shingles outbreak, what are recommendations?

New mom of 3 week old baby has shingles outbreak, what are recommendations?

He should be immune: The answer depends on whether or not mom's antibodies got into the newborn before birth. If mom got shingles, that means she had chicken pox in the past, so mom does have antibodies. If baby is term and healthy, he received mom's antibodies and should not be vulnerable to the virus for at least 2 months. After 2-3 months of age, his "maternal" antibodies start fading away, and he is vulnerable. ...Read more

Hey I have a 7 month old baby boy names Ryan Clay he weight 14Ib 12oz is he under weight?

Hey I have a 7 month old baby boy names Ryan Clay he weight 14Ib 12oz is he under weight?

Not under weight: Ryan Clay is in the range of normal weight for his age. About 10 - 15% of normal boys his age weigh less than he does. More important than the weight today, is the trend over time: if he used to be on the very heavy end of the normal range--say, at 3 months--and now is at the light end, this is more concerning than if he has been at the lighter end of normal all along. See doc regularly! ...Read more

I giv my baby 2 scoops of generic enfamil infant mixed with1 scoop of name brand enfamil AR . generic scoop looks bigger than than the other, this ok?

Scoop size: The scoops may appear to be of different dimension to your eyes. Why don't you look to see if there is a label impressed into the scoop such as 1 tsp or 1 tbsp. Check the side of the cans of formula. It may be the case that they manufactured it such that they want you to use 2 scoops of the generic formula to reconstitute the liquid formula. They will give the instructions on the side of the can. ...Read more
