Should I keep breast feeding even if my infant seems to be vomitting all the time?

Baby vomiting: If you baby is really vomiting as opposed to spit up all the time then you should bring him/her to the doctor. If the baby is vomiting so much that she/he isn't gaining weight then that is a problem. If there is spit up and the baby is gaining then that is likely a normal finding.

If it is projectile (across the room) or pine green I would have him evaluated immediately. ...Read more

Are babies born without kneecaps. I'm reading in my breast feeding book on newborns and this is what they say?

Are babies born without kneecaps. I'm reading in my breast feeding book on newborns and this is what they say?

Let me explain: Newborn have knee cap. Kneecaps form about the fourth month of fetal life. However, they don’t show up on x-ray very well because they’re not ossified, or bony. At this point in life, the kneecaps are made of a cartilaginous material. The growth centers surrounding the kneecap form late in developmental life in utero and may not appear until just before or just after the infant is born. ...Read more

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

It gets easier with: Time to interpret your baby's cries. Unfortunately, when babies cry they swallow air. The smooth muscle of the intestine isn't synchronized yet to pass the air out. If baby seems gag when starting to nurse, he may need a burp. I'll ask my arabic-speaking daughter to help explain the " football hold" or "colic carry" to you to help baby pass gas. When all else fails, allow your baby to self-calm. ...Read more

If you are breastfeeding that is the best medicine. ...Read more
