Will a new born baby get detached from mother if she is bottle fed by many people from birth. Not only me,My mom and aunt is also feeding her. ?

Infrequent: If you have active tuberculosis it is possible to infect your fetus through the placenta but this is rare.

Varies: My delivering hospitals have lists from Child and Family Services that point out individuals with open drug investigations. When they deliver, urine from mom and baby will usually be screened and in many cases the first baby stool will also be submitted for study. I do not routinely order drug studies on babies, but any prior history of maternal drug use may require screening for medical purposes. ...Read more

Is it safe to give feeder bottle to a new born baby? Her mother has gone through an operation. Is it true feeder bottle can affect baby's lungs?
It's fine!: While breast feeding is best, if something has happened with mom and she can't breast feed, or chooses not to, it is perfectly fine to give breast milk or formula through a bottle. There are many types of bottles now, many that more closely mimic how a breast feeds and feels in the baby's mouth.

You need help: Contact a lactation consultant in your area (a nurse who specializes in helping moms breast feed), or a representative of la leche league (http://www.Llli.Org/webus.Html).
