There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight.

She probably won't drink as much from the cup at the beginning, but once she gets used to it,she will probably do well. If she still won't drink enough, please speak to her doctor. ...Read more

Can you tell me if on days I'm off she wants to bottle feed anyone know suggestion to help her get back to breastfeeding when I'm home?

Keep trying: You can only try. Some babies prefer the bottle since it's easier. Some prefer the breast. You can try offering the breast in the evening and in the morning, when she's most likely to want to snuggle. It also helps if you give the breast and someone else gives the bottle. Don't worry too much. If she gets some breast milk, she will still get the benefits. ...Read more

Some babies do not poop every day, while others are having problems and need to poop more often than that. Generally, as long as a baby is normal in eating, growth, and development; and does not have firm poop, bloating, or tummy aches; then the number of poops per day is not very important. ...Read more
