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?

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.

Does drinking cold milk have any disadvantages? Can it be given to babies?

Does drinking cold milk have any disadvantages? Can it be given to babies?

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.

My baby don't want to drink infant formula anymore,he is  just 2 years old.thanks?

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?

Better pain treatmen: There are better pain treatments than feeling the need to drink alcohol to make the pain go away. You could try exercise, yoga or any other treatments your doctor would recommend. To answer your question, alcohol would show up in your bloodstream for a few hrs after ingesting.

Why does young babies water (for formula) have to be boiled first and they can't just drink straight from the tap?

Why does young babies water (for formula) have to be boiled first and they can't just drink straight from the tap?

Depends on source: In most municipalities with approved water supplies, this is not needed. When the water comes from untested well or surface systems, it may be tainted with germs or parasites, which could cause a deadly dysentery and dehydration in a vulnerable infant.

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.

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.

Yes: Decrease in urine output may indicate the start of dehydration. It is not often associated with teething. If your child is not having the same number of wet diapers, even though he is a happy child- at no time should it be dismissed as insignificant.

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!

Can milk go into the ears of an infant if you prop them up while drinking a bottle?

Can milk go into the ears of an infant if you prop them up while drinking a bottle?

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.

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.
