Dehydration: Hind milk is the rich milk that comes after most of the milk is expressed out of the breast. It's high in essential fats and proteins. There isn't that much of it, and it's very thick. If a child is healthy and well hydrated, it's probably not too bad, but the optimal way to feed is to have them drink the regular breast milk and make sure they get hind milk, not just all hind milk. ...Read more

Minor difference: Most milk-based infant formulas are essentially the same, although different companies will sometimes make very minor changes such as a different amount of calcium. There are some formulas which are designed to be easier to digest, and some babies with acid reflux have less spitting with these formulas. Powder vs ready-to-feed can make a difference, too. ...Read more

My 10 months child has diahrea,she feeding formula Lactogen 2 ,I dont 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby constant ear infections since birth . 1 now. allergy tests negative. she was on soy and the ear infections was better.on monte air sprinkles,cortizone pump and nose spray.tried lactogen low lactose ear infection back again. What do you suggest?
Depends: You did not provide the age or number. A general mantra is 5 in 1 yr or 1 that won't clear in 90 days deserves tubes. The primary reason kids remain infected is poor drainage of middle ear mucous through the natural Eustachian tubes. Head growth with age solves this in most but a few need tubes to break the cycle. The thick mucous is removed during tube placement. ...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.

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.

Fussy is whatever baby feels pissy about often fatigue. ...Read more
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! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embryology ...Read more
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
