Is it ok to feed my baby cow's milk?

Is it ok to feed my baby cow's milk?

No: The aap recommends not introducing cow's milk to your infant until his/her 1st birthday. For the first year of life, the ideal liquid is breast milk. If your infant is not breast-feeding, using formula is recommended. Formula is iron and vitamin fortified, where cow's milk has no iron. The milk protein load in cow's milk is too high for infants and can upset their belly. ...Read more

When can I feed my baby corn?

When can I feed my baby corn?

Depends on the form: I think the real question is, "when can my child have corn kernels?" corn can be given as a normal solid with the other solids at 8-9 months when table foods are being introduced. There is nothing special about corn. However, corn kernels with skins are a choking hazard, and should be reserved until later, usually 15 mo or so, when chewing and swallowing are better coordinated. ...Read more

When can I feed my baby nuts?

Wait until talking: Nuts are not necessary for a balanced infant nutrition but do have valuable nutrients. I have had parents offer nuts, popcorn & similar fare as snacks, only to have the infant suck pieces into the lung. Days may go by before a terrible pneumonia starts & baby couldn't get better until the nut piece was removed in the or.Wait until they can talk well so they can tell you if they inhaled the snack. ...Read more

When can I feed my baby yogurt?

When can I feed my baby yogurt?

6 months: There's no convincing evidence that delaying any food beyond 4 to 6 months reduces the odds of allergies. The main reasons to delay foods are if they 1) are a choking hazard (like peanuts), 2) might cause an infection (like honey or raw eggs), 3) contain questionable ingredients (such as artificial colors), or 4) aren't good foods that you want kids to learn to love (such as soda or french fries). ...Read more

Why is my baby feeding less often?

Why is my baby feeding less often?

Not a growth spurt: Babies go through growth spurts, in which they seem to eat all the time, and then slower periods of growth during which they do not seem to be as hungry. You might worry if your baby isn't feeding because she doesn't seem to feel good, is lethargic, or has fever or trouble breathing. If she looks and acts healthy, it may be a temporary slowdown in her growth. She may be eating more per feed, too. ...Read more

What amount of and what should I feed my baby?

Should I feed my baby more if he is under weight?

Should I feed my baby more if he is under weight?

Yes: If your doctor deems that your baby is underweight for his height, the best solution is to try to feed more. If your baby is still in the infant stage, adding some additional breastfeeding sessions during the day (or formula) is a great option. If your baby is already consuming tablefoods, more healthy higher calorie foods will do the trick (baby food is not very high in calories, unfortunately). ...Read more

Bottle Feeding: I'll presume since you are a man we are talking about bottle feeding! This depends on baby's age. If you have a newborn, baby should be having between an ounce and two ounces every several hours, on demand. The number of ounces gradually increases as the baby grows older and the feedings gradually space out longer. Ask again with the specifics of baby's age and we can help more. ...Read more

If s/he empties every bottle you can add an ounce at a time until the begin to leave some behind.I don't like going over 8 oz at any feed & will cut back if they start to spit a lot. ...Read more
