My mother died and there was some empty packets of somac and blood on the Floor is it possible to die of taking much of this kind of medication?

Unlikely, but...: Many things are possible in life, so the answer to "Is it possible?" is usually "Yes"... but that has little or no meaning. A better question is, "How likely is it?"... which may have a meaningful answer.

Can husband drink milk produced in breast of her wife by stimulating the breast . IS it baleful for health?

Can husband drink milk produced in breast of her wife by stimulating the breast . IS it baleful for health?

No problem, unless..: Unless a mom has too little milk, it doesn't matter at all that somebody else (such as a twin sibling or another person) is drinking some of the milk. The breasts will make more. So, as long as the baby is well-fed and happily growing, mom is fine to share her breast milk.

Don't be in a hurry!: The simplest, most natural way to wean is when your child initiates the process, usually around when solids are started.

I have 2 day old infant (2nd child) and I have extremely sore cracked nipples.I pumped milk and right breast milk had blood clots. Help please. ?

Don't worry!: some bleeding from the nipples is normal and if the baby gets a little of your blood in the milk it is ok. If there is a lot, you could dump it if it makes you feel better. Use a gentle barrier ointment like lanolin on your nipples after nursing. Make sure to vary nursing positions and alternate starting breast. See a lactation consult if things don't improve in a few days. ...Read more
