What Should I Do If My 6 Month Baby Does Not Want To Drink Any Form Of Formula
Transition slowly: Breast milk tastes radically different from formula, and babies get used to what they have been on. I'm assuming that you pump and feed with a bottle, and if not, start. You can start by adding 3/4 breast milk and 1/4 formula to a bottle and starting that for a week or so. Then slowly transitioning to 1/2 of each, and eventually working breast milk out of the bottle entirely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I'm about to have a baby and I do not do drugs but I do smoke cigs, will cps take my baby for that?
Have dad try: To avoid a baby who will only eat from the breast start using a bottle every other day when the baby is about 1 month old. When using a bottle have dad feed him when mom's out of the house (seeing and hearing mom means the breast is an option). Try the bottle when he's hungry but not famished or when he's sleepy. Try different positions or movements to distract him. Warm the milk and the nipple. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Whatever you can: There are only two ways to get in fluids. Orally and iv. So your purpose is clear. Start by trying to give a couple ounces of rehydration solution (pedialyte) by bottle, and if unsuccessful, you can spoon it in, or even use a dropper to instill small amounts in the child's mouth. By spooning in a few teaspoons frequently, you can get a lot of fluids in short period of time. Falling behind, call! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I do not enjoy taking care of my newborn. husband does not understand, why is this?
Find an alternative: Bovine milk is a convenient but unnecessary part of the diet. If it weren't an easy calcium source it would likely not be used at all. The other benefits:sugars, fluid, protein & fat are available in other liquids. Your baby may be self selecting against the bovine milk because it figured out that it causes cramps or gas. Move on to something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have dad step in: Babies are much smarter than we give them credit! your baby has probably realized she prefers the feeling of your breast to the nipple on the bottle. Given the choice, she is likely to choose you first! you might need to have someone else (dad, a grandparent or friend) step in to introduce the bottle when you step out. She will probably protest a bit, but will eventually eat when she is hungry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vomiting, hot: It sounds like you are describing a tummy infection. You can use Tylenol (acetaminophen) suppositories to treat his fever, the dose based on his weight. Try small amounts of Pedialyte or similar electrolyte solution to keep fluids down. If this is not working, have him seen. Babies can get dehydrated quickly. All the best and I hope he feels better. ...Read more
