GI illness: Is your baby well grown? Any travel? Daycare? Contacts with illness? Any blood in his stool? This may be a viral illness which causes vomiting and diarrhea. Get him checked out. Push fluids. Water is fine. ...Read more

My 10 months child has diahrea, she feeding formula Lactogen 2, I don't know whether I hav to change the formula or what I must do, please help?
Recent change?: If you have RECENTLY changed to Lactogen and the diarrhea started, then the diarrhea may be caused by the new formula. However, if you have ALWAYS fed the Lactogen, and the diarrhea has only recently started, look for another cause. Offering an electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte after each loose stool can help prevent dehydration. Bloody diarrhea is always cause for concern, needing doctor. ...Read more
? can't?: The best advise in the 40's to 60's included early infant solids to make up for deficiencies in home made bovine milk formula. (great for cows) This changed when moms went back to breast feeding and formulas were better designed for human use. No-one will jail you for early feeds, but it doesn't improve babies diet, sleep, or growth. Waiting until they sit is better for their developmental needs. ...Read more
Calming: Sucking is really the only mechanism newborn babies have to calm themselves. Its a built in reflex and helps calm babies, even when not eating. Its one step parents can use to help calm crying babies, but some babies will need us to calm them with holding, wrapping, shushing, etc... ...Read more
Milk: First, I would just try it. They might take to it, without a problem. If they reject that, then titrate. Start with 7oz formula and 1oz milk. After a few days, go to 6oz and 2oz, and so on. It's a good time to switch to a sippy, too. Also, don't forget to use whole milk (4%), from 1-2 yrs old. ...Read more

Babies' growth: Yes, babies growth may be "stunted" if they do no not receive adequate milk, (breast or formula). At first only weight is affected, but depending on duration length and brain growth and development could be affected. If unsure about your baby have your doctor check weights weekly or monthly depending on age. ...Read more
Define constipation: Breast fed kids may go a little every feed or one bulky stool every 7-10 days & if soft they are not constipated. Most formula babies go 1-2xd. Any stool that is dried out is constipation & a sign things are not moving along fast enough. Gas is from air swallowed or gas produced by gut germs. Fussy is whatever baby feels pissy about often fatigue. ...Read more
As the fertilized egg develops there's a time where the fetus is neither male or female. Then genetics kicks in and the right hormones grow the proper gender. This is why some males during teens get small breast buds - slight female tissue left over. Simplistic testicles in males - ovaries in females. It's fascinating we all turn out reasonably ok thru this complex process!

Is nestle creating milk products for babies who would be better off breastfed? I wonder about their work in africa.
Somewhat: Nestle is not creating a specific mild substitute for this process. Instead they already have the substitute available. They have been criticized however for promoting these products and encouraging mothers in Africa not to breast feed. This would eliminate the known advantage of breast feeding as well as the bonding. ...Read more
I have 3month premature twince babies can I give other food like serelac, fruits luiqued etc. I think not enougth milk?
No food, please!: The babies are too young for cereal or baby food. They are growing very quickly, and it can be hard for your milk supply to keep up. Try drinking more water and nursing more often; nurse both twins at once if you can, as that will increase your supply more quickly. You can have your doctor weigh the babies; if you must, supplement with infant formula, but that may not be necessary. ...Read more
I added another half a scoop of infant formula by mistake while making formula milk. Baby has drank it. Should I be worried?
What ages to newborns/babies have growth spurts? When should I be expecting her to nurse more often and will I make more milk during this time?
Growth Spurts: There are no specific exact times. Babies go through their growth spurts, they cry to nurse more frequently and yes, your body meets their demands by producing more milk. Let nature do her work and you will notice she will send your body clues as she needs more nutrition. :) ...Read more
Aspiration: The swallowing and breathing tubes use the same mouth and rely on a transitional structure called the epiglottis to close over the breathing tube and allow you to swallow food/fluids. If a baby is breathing in while the fluid is trying to go down, some can sneak passed the epiglottis and be inhaled into the lung. Luckily this rarely happens. ...Read more
I gave my two months old infant a drop of old prepared formula milk by mistake. What can happen to my infant?
Spots will resolve: Milia are very common, and though frustrating for parents to see are not associated with any underlying problem. The little white bumps on the face will resolve with time and I generally recommend parents do nothing to make them go away any faster. They will not cause any permanent scarring and are not painful to the baby. Feel reassured your baby is ok and watchful waiting is the best medicine! ...Read more
Pre-digested formula: There are 2 hypoallergenic formulas, nutramigen and alimentum. They are predigested to avoid food allergies. They are also much more expensive. You can probably try regular priced formulas that are either milk-free or with partially digested milk proteins. By far, most babies do well without needing a hypoallergenic formula. ...Read more

Confusing question: Your question is not clear. As long as your babies are making a pee diaper every 6 hours they should not have a problem with dehydration.Many infants find water distasteful and refuse it.

Can switching soy base formula to regular milk base, harm by 3month old baby? If babies stay on soy base, will that effect her when she gets older?
Varies: There are babies that are intolerant to milk based formulas, either to the protein or the lactose sugar. These kids will be chronically fussy, have acidic stools or otherwise a mess. If your kid can eat, digest and act comfortable on a milk based formula it is ok to switch. You might want to review the idea with the doc, some use soy for kids with galactosemia and a change to could be harmful. ...Read more
Either: Water is a healthy part of any diet. Formula or breast milk is actually balanced to provide the proper amount of water equivalent, to the baby making extra water unnecessary in most cases. It is a reasonable supplement to breast fed kids when relatives want to share the joy of a nurturing moment, & extra water for a kid with hard stools is often helpful. ...Read more

Is Tetra pack long shelf life cow milk as good for babies as fresh short shelf life cow milk? The tetra pack milk may have some preservatives in it.
Maybe: From what I understand in the packaging of shelf-stable milk such as Tetra pack, there is no additional preservatives. The milk is ultra-pasteurized, and the packaging is sterile, allowing long-term storage without refrigeration. However, it is not recommended to start cow's milk products until your baby is at least 1 year old. ...Read more
