When can baby eat?Can i fed my baby at four months?What about rice sereal?

Unnecessary : 50 years ago infants were fed solids early & frequently to make up for deficiencies in the evaporated milk formulas moms made at home. Today early feeds are an antiquated practice & do not add to the child's nutrition. Today solids are viewed as a tutorial to transition baby to the table. Starting at 6m as the tongue thrust fades & baby begins to sit is early enough. ...Read more

My seven week old baby poops once every other day, is this normal?

My seven week old baby poops once every other day, is this normal?

Yes: As long as stools are soft/mushy/liquidy when the baby does poop, the pattern you describe is perfectly normal. Some babies are just so efficient at digesting their mom;s milk that they may not make a lot of waste product (poop), so dont stool as often. Many breast fed babies give little runny skid marks with each feed. Consistency of the poop matters, not frequency. ...Read more

Is it safe to try an give my baby gerber baby food? Hes four months old

Yes: Most parents begin to feed babes at around 4 months. Gerber foods are fine. Usually start with cereal, then yellow veggies and then green and then others adding in one at a time a week at a time. Usually avoid fruits till later so as not to make "fruit" babies out of them. Start slowly and and add slowly. Breast milk is best still at this age and formula is fine. ...Read more

Can a four month baby old drink juice?

Can a four month baby old drink juice?

Yes,but: I seldom recommend juice in infancy unless i'm using it to loosen an infant's stools. Many use them in diluted form, but i personally consider them like feeding an infant a coke. If the kid is to experience an apple it should be in the form of apple sauce, not processed juices. The same goes for the other juices. We need to avoid creating sugar addicts in the cradle. ...Read more

Should my baby poop after every feeding?

No: Stooling patterns for infants are very different from adults. Some newborns poop after every feed (yes that can mean 8 times a day!). Some breastfed babies, however, absorb all the nutrients in the milk and can go up to a week without a poopey diaper.
