Is there a natural way to tone up sagging breasts after you have breastfed 2 babies.

Healthy living: There is no way to "tone" the actual breasts per se. Using a good unscented moisturizer, avoid the sun like the plague, also consider upper body weight training to tone the muscles under the breasts, as well as shoulders and arms. This will get your body in top physical condition. Congrats on breastfeeding two babies! What an accomplishment! ...Read more

Why can't i smoke when i'm breast-feeding? I see many mothers do it and their babies turn out to be fine, will i hurt my baby

Why can't i smoke when i'm breast-feeding? I see many mothers do it and their babies turn out to be fine, will i hurt my baby

Yes: Start with an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome, add 2-3x incerase in bronchitis& ear infections & other respiratory issues. Add decreased growth & exposure to nicotine in the milk, short of this you will teach this child to smoke as an adult. I am not aware of any health benefits of smoking to you or your child. At least you are breast feeding, thats good. ...Read more

If infant pukes up breast milk should you feed them again?

If infant pukes up breast milk should you feed them again?

Most of the time yes: Infants often normally reflux small amounts of milk after feeding, while burping, with motion or for no reason at all. They then can be hungry again very soon, and you can go ahead and feed them. But if the amount is unusually large or frequent, or their urine is dark, see your doctor asap. ...Read more

Why did the number of american women who chose to breast feed their babies drop so dramaticly after wwii?

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. All babies spit up, some more then others. If they are gaining and happy then it is usually fine. ...Read more

Could babies or children have breast cancer?

Could babies or children have breast cancer?

Pretty unlikely: I can't say the risk is 0, but i've never seen a true breast cancer in children or babies. I've had a 17 yo with breast cancer - probably the youngest i've seen. Really children and babies don't have breast tissue until they hit puberty, so there should be minimal risk. Higher risk of other types of cancers (but not in the breast for that age range). ...Read more

Do you have twins?: If breast feeding the babies caused your breasts to become smaller, it probably means that the initial engorgement has been relieved.

Is it alright for small babies to feed on goat milk , if they are not being breast fed?

Folate (folic acid) is one of the items it lacks & some commercial goat milks have added this to their product to improve if for human consumption. There are at least a dozen formulas available that provide balanced nutrition for infants. Certainly one will be adequate for any infant. ...Read more
