Needs observation: Black stool can be from iron, but could also be sign of bleeding. If she has not have any upper endoscopy and colonoscopy, it will be wise to consider. For simple testing, stop the iron pill for 5 days and do a stool guaiac test and a blood test ...Read more

Is it alright for small babies to feed on goat milk, if they are not being breast fed?

Is it alright for small babies to feed on goat milk, if they are not being breast fed?

Not necessarily: Goat milk is deficient in many of the nutrients that human infants need for proper growth and development. Folate (folic acid) is one of the items it lacks & some commercial goat milks have added this to their product to improve if for human consumption. There are at least a dozen formulas available that provide balanced nutrition for infants. Certainly one will be adequate for any infant. ...Read more

Is it ok to give my baby goat's milk?

Is it ok to give my baby goat's milk?

No: Goats milk is higher in protein and makes babies kidneys work a lot harder. It also has less vitamin B6 and folic acid. Babies that are allergic to cows milk tend to be allergic to goats milk. It is not a milk you want to use the first year of life and never raw. ...Read more

May I feed my baby 1 month olds w??ith karihome goat's milk

Probably not : Although goats milk may be closer to human milk than cow's milk, there are several distinct dangers to babies. First are vitamin deficiencies, goats milk lacks both vitamin b12 and folate (folic acid). Babies develop a "megaloblastic anemia" from this deficiency. Second is a danger of infection, brucellosis, you should know, so definitely boil before use. ...Read more

My baby has 5 months, can he drinks goat milk?

Not a good idea: Gaots milk is designed for goats. It is not balanced nutrition for a human infant and is specifically deficient in folate (folic acid). Formulas are balanced and several are available to meat the specific needs of any kid. I encourage people to wait until after age 1 yr to offer goats milk. ...Read more

Feeding: Preferable to feed infant formula or breast feed unless there is an allergy and then you may have to resort to goat's milk. It is safe to use for a 1-month old but will be missing nutrients. All the best. ...Read more

Is "Goat's Milk Formula" better than cows milk formula? Our baby does not have any allergies. But would like to know if one is better than the other? Thanks

Is "Goat's Milk Formula" better than cows milk formula? Our baby does not have any allergies. But would like to know if one is better than the other?  Thanks

No: Recent studies found that avoidance of food beyond the 1st 6 months of life actually makes one more likely to develop food allergy. Goat's milk cross-react with cow's milk rather extensively, and thus it is not a good substitute even if the child does develop milk allergy. ...Read more

Can I give my 8 week old baby store bought goat milk?

Great for goats: Just like cow milk is designed for cows, human milk for humans, goats milk is for goats. It's only value in public exchange is for those whose culture prefers it to cow milk when the kid is old enough to be off breast milk or formula. It is deficient in various nutrients required for proper human growth and development and can lead to a predictable form of megaloblastic anemia. ...Read more

Soften stools: Infants transitioning diets to solids may not get enough fiber / fluids in diet; 5 gm of fiber daily, try pureeing vegetables, fruits and use of infant cereals with adequate amount of fiber, an average sized 11 month old should have about 32 oz of fluids daily. If these measures are not helpful, baby will need further evaluation ...Read more

?

Formula feeding: Goat's milk does not contain a key nutrient called folic acid, a lack of which can cause severe anemia. I don't know about Australia but there should be other commercially available formulas to try-one might consider one that is either lower in lactose content, more predigested or easier to digest or even a soy based one. You should probably check with the baby's PCP about different formula types ...Read more

Is it normal to show as soon as 10 weeks? I have felt like I am bloated more and wondering if it's that or actual baby growth.

A little early: At ten weeks the fetus is very small and still below the pubic bone. More likely the bloating is due to gas which is common from the elevated Progesterone levels that occur in pregnancy. ...Read more

See your doctor: Sounds like a food intolerance or allergy- even carbohydrate intolerance. The Best idea is a thorough evaluation with your physician.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Bloating by baby: You didn't mention your infant's age. If your baby is vomiting repeatedly throughout the day, don't delay & get help right now for obstruction. The possibilities for considerable pathology & consequences are too great to ignore! If your child is instead spitting a portion of every feeding, or you suspect a food intolerance, urgency is less in seeking help but evaluation now is still warranted. ...Read more

Sense I had my baby @ 41 my periods have been more regular, but I'm more crampy/bloated. I'm 45, could this be pre-menopausal? I'm 45 and had a baby shortly before I turned 41. Since then my periods have gotten more regular and predictable than they were

There : There are several reasons why women have pelvic cramps. If your menses are heavier, that may be the reason for the cramps. Sometimes peri-menopausal women have heavier bleeding than they did when they were young. You many have adenomyosis, or an enlarged fibroid. It would be better to see a doctor to evaluate your symptoms fully and maybe get an ultrasound done to find the cause of the cramping. ...Read more
