Does my baby need rice cereal or water?

Does my baby need rice cereal or water?

Probably not: You do not mention the age of the infant, but no infant under the age of 4 months needs cereal, and water only serves to dilute the calories they are taking in. The only reason to feed the infant water is if they are vomiting, and you cannot get them to drink formula, pedialyte, or gatorade, in that order. ...Read more

Healthy weight loss: Takes time and persistence. The general principles are to maintain a normal metabolism while you burn more calories than you take in. A balanced diet is needed to keep the metabolism up. You need to get enough sleep and exercise. You cannot starve yourself as this will cause the body to slow down its metabolism. You will loose weight. You need to learn about how to do this first. ...Read more

Does not cooking rice in enough water so that it completely absorbed when stopped cooking contain higher levels of arsenic if the rice is overcooked?

Does not cooking rice in enough water so that it completely absorbed when stopped cooking contain higher levels of arsenic if the rice is overcooked?

Unlikely: It is an issue as arsenic can accumulate in rice. The main precaution recommended is pre-soaking and cooking in lots of water 5:1. It is more likely to be an issue if rice is the staple (main) food.

Can I use 1 spoon of rice vinegar (ingredients: water, ethanol, rice)/day in my diet when I am on accutane?

Can I use 1 spoon of rice vinegar (ingredients: water, ethanol, rice)/day in my diet when I am on accutane?

What's really in it?: It's almost certain you signed an agreement, when you started on accutane, not to drink alcohol. Keeping a promise is a matter of principle. If the "rice vinegar" is a concoction that someone makes from real ethanol as a folk medicine, you're breaking a promise. However, most "rice vinegar" has the ethanol oxidized to acetic acid. That's harmless flavor, though there's probably no health benefit. ...Read more

Is swimming good for babies? What about the pool water?

Is swimming good for babies? What about the pool water?

Depends on reason: I find infants/toddlers/kids do well in the water and enjoy the process when used as a a fun activity. Parents need to understand that it must be closely supervised and kids warned never to go near water unless an adult is with them. Swimming "lessons" are a problem when uses as a "safety" measure in children. You can NEVER drown proof a kid, ever, with lessons and I don't suggest them before 4y. ...Read more

When is it safe to stop sterilizing your babies bottles and water?

When is it safe to stop sterilizing your babies bottles and water?

Clean versus sterile: All dishes, cups, and silverware should always be 'sterile' or at least cleaned in hot water with soap. No eating should be done, regardless of age, from unclean dishes, glasses or silverware. I do not understand the question. Hot water suffices to clean or 'sterilize' the eating utensils we use as humans whether we are babies or adults. ...Read more

Coconut water potassium too much for babies?

Coconut water potassium too much for babies?

No coconut water: Water is not safe for babies under 6 mts. It can lead to sodium imbalance which can cause seizures. Only breast milk/formula before then. After 6 mts, can offer small amounts of water in a cup. Fruit juice is ok too but I believe that kids are better off if they don't discover fruit juice and get that taste for sugary drinks. I have never heard of giving babies coconut water. I would be cautious. ...Read more

Nothing specific: Babies don't need anything but breast milk or formula for the first year but I see no reason to Prohibit it's use.

My babies refusing the water they are now seven months what can I do? When I should give them? How much daily?

No problem!: A normal 7 month-old does not need to drink water. Babies should be offered breast milk, or formula, when thirsty. Sometimes juice is used to help resolve constipation. Otherwise, juice is not needed. During periods of the stomach flu, pedialyte may be tried if a baby is not tolerating breast milk or formula. But, in general, babies do not need to drink water. ...Read more
