How many ounces of formula should a 8 month old baby girl have in a day? And what about baby food? 3 meals a day? Thanks doctors

Solid food meals are often three times per day and can start to include soft table foods as well. As long as the kids stay well hydrated and grow well this is the best strategy. Your doctor will monitor your child's growth. ...Read more

My baby is 5 months old is it ok to switch formulas every few weeks to see what suits him as i'm having trouble finding a formula?
Many do: Babies who fuss use their diaphragm muscle to cry and that pushes out the belly. They swallow air when fussing and the combination of gas and a bloated tummy makes many think tummy pain is their problem.Although there are dozens of formulas, the basic 3 are:cow milk based, soy and lactose free.There are some expensive hydrolyzed forms for allergic babies.

If a 7 alomst 8 year old boy touches a 4 almost 5 year old boys penis is it sexual abuse or normal kid stuff? Is the 7 old enough to know better?
I call abusive: Such interaction between age equivalent kids is "exploration" & i can accept as much as 2 years age difference into that idea. Beyond that and specifically for the 7-8 yo who is old enough to know right from wrong on these issues it is abuse & often reveals a past abuse of the older kid.Size & intimidation is also an issue when the 60 lb 7-8 yo is doing this with a 40+lb 4-5 yo. ...Read more
