Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.

Is it safe to feed my 9 mos old baby yogurt for infants and toddlers labelled 6 mos and up, which contain cow's milk?

The milk is ultra-pasteurized, and the packaging is sterile, allowing long-term storage without refrigeration. However, it is not recommended to start cow's milk products until your baby is at least 1 year old. ...Read more
Depends on situation: Some folks prefer the bovine protein as more human like & there is some question whether the soy lives up to its quality. That said, most kids would never have any appreciable difference in growth/development either way.The exception comes if a kid is intolerant to one. If so, the other product or a specialty formula like alumentum would be less likely to cause GI symptoms. ...Read more
My baby is 11 days old, breast milk not coming in satisfactory quantity so feeding him on NESTLÉ NAN PRO1, is it safe? Give tips to increase milk
Formula is safe: if you prepare with safe water and use refrigeration. To increase your breast milk, breast feed or pump and express milk every 2-3 hours. Make sure you are drinking enough fluids and nutrition and rest, as your body needs to take care of you before using extra fluids and calories to produce milk. Sometimes the baby is too weak to breast feed well and needs the extra calories to get stronger. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
