Absoutely!: Your system will do everything to give the best to your newborn. If you are not getting enough of all the different vitamins in your diet, it will steal them out of your tissues and bones to get some for the baby. It is difficult to get everything you need at this point just from your diet, so a vitamin is a must so you don't long-term weaken your body and bones. Take to boost both you and baby!See 2 more doctor answers
There's no good data: Because st. John's wort is classified as a dietary supplement, manufacturers do not have to prove safety or effectiveness of this product, nor is approval by the fda required. So, there is scant medical information about st. John's wort during breast feeding. Very limited data involving only a few nursing infants indicated that st. John's wort could be detected in infant blood samples. Ask your md.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: The general rule is if I would use it for a baby it is ok for use in a breast feeding mother. We exclude sulfa drugs in the first 2 months and drugs like Cipro (ciprofloxacin) that are not generally used in childhood. Just tell the doc you are breastfeeding and they should sort that out, or ask again when you know which one is being considered.

How long I can still take cerrazette pill (opp suitable for breast feeding mothers) and now I stopped breast feeding 3months ago?
Minipill use: It is preferred if you use a Progesterone only minipill for contraception that you are breast feeding every 2-4 hours to maintain its effectiveness. If not, then switch to a combination ocp for best protection frm pregnancy if you are able to use this. If you cannot use a combination ocp, then the Progesterone only pill is ok combined with backup contraception such as condoms.

Our 3-week old seems to be spitting up a lot after each breast-feeding. .. No fever, but we're wondering what nourishment, if any, he's getting?
Gaining weight?: Many babies spit up some of their feedings. This may be due to overfeeding or just him gulping down air along with the milk. Burping frequently can help the latter. The most important thing is whether he is growing. Doctors use charts to plot babies' growth. If his weight and length are going along the curve, he's doing ok. Http://www. Cdc.

My 12 months old baby has mild fever and we are out for a trip. What should be done? Will only breast feeding be right?
Fluids....: Breast feeding alone would be great as long as you still have a good milk supply. If child running fever, which is just a symptom, not in and of itself a disease, then you need to ensure adequate hydration, which can be done with breast feeding. Make sure not to overdress the baby, and even though you are out on a trip, try and get plenty of rest for the baby.
