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

Why can't we feed babies anything except milk until they are 6-months-old?

Why can't we feed babies anything except milk until they are 6-months-old?

? 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

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

Why do men have nipples if they don't need to produce milk for babies?

Why do men have nipples if they don't need to produce milk for babies?

Embryology: 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?

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

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.

What causes babies to ingest milk into their lungs?

What causes babies to ingest milk into their lungs?

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

How do I deal with my babies milk spots (milium) on his face?

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

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.
