Depends: P.S. All babies tend to strain rather dramatically with stools at some point, probably because their brain is working hard to coordinate their intestinal muscles (which are still weak) and nerves. Plus they are laying flat most of the time, so they don't have help from gravity. As long as their stools are soft, the crying, pulling up of legs, turning red is normal and won't last forever. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

Development: Babies do most of their growing in the third trimester. In the first trimester they grow of course but the main thing that is going on is the development of legs, arms, hearts, etc. That is the reason that most miscarriages occur in the first trimester. It is amazing that so many things have to happen in the right order at that point to develop a normal baby. They truly are miraculous every one! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How much baby cereal can I add to the formula bottles per day so my 5 month old baby stop waking up at nights for feeds? Thanks
Don't: Don't add infant cereal to your child's bottles. If she is ready to take baby foods, always give them with a spoon. She needs to learn to *eat* her foods, not *drink* them. At first, she may just take a spoonful or two, but it will gradually increase as she learns how to move the food off of the spoon. Most babies learn to sleep by having a regular routine and falling asleep in their own crib. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I give 7w baby 4oz formula on demand every 3-4 hours and at longer stretches during the night. Usually 24oz per day. Is that too little?
Dr. can check at 3mo: A young baby makes his own schedule and will fuss or cry if still hungry. Healthy babies are fed "ad lib", which means we let the baby decide how much to drink. (Usually, after 3 months of age a normal baby can be allowed to go 6-7 hours at night without feeding or other parental interaction.) The pediatrician can check the baby's growth at the 2 month check up next week, to make sure it's normal. ...Read more
Every baby differs: Frequency of breast feeding depends on age and weight of the baby, as well as quality ; quantity of milk with each feeding. Most babies who weigh about 12 pounds will be able to sleep 6 hours at night, but then will often cluster feed during the day to compensate. Some babies fast and stop after 1 side, and only get a 1/2 feeding. Limit side 1 to 10 min, then switch. Mom needs fluids ; rest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How fed ????: A breast fed infant may stool a bit every feeding or an overflow diaper once a week. If it is soft it is not constipation. If formula fed, the pattern is more likely to be a few daily or at least every other day. If stools are soft & baby feeds well & plays, there is no reason to be concerned. If a poor feeder & not wetting diapers at least every 6 hours, i would have her checked. ...Read more
