What do you recommend if I gave birth to my son 4 days back. but I am not able to feed him nurse are saying milk is generated even my son is sucking?

Consider a lactation consult. ...Read more

Awaken before..: If his night terrors occur at a predictable time after he falls asleep, it can sometimes help to disturb his sleep about a half hour before their onset. If they usually occur 2 hours after he falls asleep, at 1 1/2 hours go in and rearrange him in bed, sit him up for a drink, gently rub back and change his sleep cycle. This can reduce night terrors by as much as 80% in some toddlers. Worth a try! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
