Which laxative used for new born baby?

Which laxative used for new born baby?

I don't: Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week. If it is soft when they go it is not constipation & don't worry about it. Formula fed babies usually have a more predictable pattern of daily stools. If stools are getting hard, i often try full strength prune juice, 1oz once or more/d.Takes about 3d to get things moving. ...Read more

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

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

What are some common baby skincare mistakes parents make?

What are some common baby skincare mistakes parents make?

Overbathing!: One of the most common mistakes i see with babies is over bathing. Baby skin does better with an every other day bath. A luke-warm bath with unscented products is best. Too frequent a bath contributes to eczema, dry skin, and rashes in babies. Less is more. Use of commonly available scented products with dyes is the second most mistake i see in practice. ...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

When can we give foods other than breast milk to our new born baby?

When can we give foods other than breast milk to our new born baby?

Wait until sitting: Breast milk or formula can provide all the needed nutrition for the first year. However, we have an expectation that kids will begin sitting at the table at a year & experiencing the culture of communal feeding.Introduction of solids is thus more cultural in timing than need. Waiting until 6 mo allows them to be sitting & a participant in the meal, rather than a passive victim of the process. ...Read more

Parents are 5'5 and 5'4 1/2,  adult daughter is 5'2. 16 year old youngest daughter is 5'2 1/2. period at 15 like other daughter. how tall will she be?

Height: Most children have their height and weight measured several times in the first year or so and then at annual physical exams. That information should be documented on a height and weight program. Ask for a copy and then see how she fits with the family height. Very likely to be the same but one never knows without clear information. ...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
