When Can My Baby Drink From A Cup
Go ahead and try: With the plethora of baby supplies available, from special bottles to sippy cups with a variety of valves, a baby can drink from a cup almost as soon as s/he can hold one. Babies will usually show interest in cups/table food and you may use this as your cue.
My husband smokes and drink a lot so he cannot have kids what medication can he take do we can have babies?
Nothing: There is no "medication" one can take to create a healthier environment for sperm production. He needs to do it the correct, old-fashioned way - change his lifestyle, his habits and live better. So many people want "pills" that will solve all problems in life, whether it be weight, behavior, sleep patterns.This is not the way to live healthy - pop a pill to fix it. He needs to change his lifestyle.See 2 more doctor answers
Not for babies<1 yo: Cold milk is a safe beverage for most above 1 years old.Infants under 1 yo should ideally get human breast milk: cow milk infant formulas and other infant formulas are an okay substitute. Check in with your pediatrician if you have other nutrition questions.
Stop Formula!: The Academy of Pediatrics and other organizations all agree that infants should be transitioned from formula to whole milk after 12 months (1year) of age, then transitioning them to low fat or skim milk after 2 years of age; of course with a healthy well-balanced diet of solid foods. Bottom line - your two year should not be drinking infant formula anymore - it has too many calories and fat.
I am 2 days past my due date n want to drink to help with pain.will it show up in my babies n my system?
Why does young babies water (for formula) have to be boiled first and they can't just drink straight from the tap?
My infant has decreased urine output and is teething. Is the decreased urine output something to be concerned with? He is eating and drinking normal.
Details: I can't help unless you tell me the baby's age and weight and if you breast fed, but normally babies have a short time transitioning to formula after breast milk but soon adapt.
At what age can an infant start drinking water and how much? For example, if the child is sick, can you given them only pedialyte?
About 6 months: Young infants typically get all the hydration they need from breast milk and formula. While it will probably not hurt to give a teaspoon or so ocationally, this could reduce the caloric & nutrient intake of the baby and risk a condition known as water intoxication. As a rule, introduce tiny amounts of water when the infants begins eating solids, which is at about six months. Good luck!
Is it normal for 2 month old babies to sleep all day and drink 2 oz of formula every 2hrs when they usually drank 4 oz and stayed up most of the day?
Yes: Sleep cycles are very dynamic in infants and affecting by growith spurts, stimulation and other things.
No.: Babies who are propped up while feeding shouldn't get milk into the ears (gravity will pull the milk down). I would venture to say that most babies are fed at least partially propped up and do just fine!

I'm 23 & have palpitations daily, getting outof bed, at work, picking up my babies. They're hard & hurt lately. I take welbutrin & drink lots of coffe?
Palpitations: From what you describe you should talk to your doc about this. In the meantime a lot of coffee can definitely be associated with palpitations. I'd recommend getting off the coffee. You should probably taper it rather than 'cold turkey'. Taper by cutting the cups/day in half, then keep cutting in half every 3 days until down to 1 cup a day and see how you are at that point.See 1 more doctor answer

Reflux: Yes, it certainly sounds like he still has reflux. I would check with a pediatric gastroenterologist for further workup.
How would i know the symptoms of c def in a infant my grandmother has c -def and we have been careful but my child has bad diearha for a little over a week and shes drinking pedialight like crazy and seems a little more irritable lately, i was wondering h
Actually, : Actually, most infants have c. Difficile bacteria in their gut as part of their normal flora and it does not cause the problems we see in older kids or adults. If your child has diarrhea, you should discuss her symptoms with her doctor. You should also call your child's doctor if you see any signs of dehydration. These signs are: - dry mouth -few or no tears when crying -excessive fussiness -fewer than 3-4 wet diapers/day -no urination in 6-8 hours -sunken soft spot -dry, wrinkled or doughy skin -appears weak or limp -decreased alertness or increased sleepiness -rapid breathing or fast heart rate.
