Is it safe to give an 8 month old baby Infant Tylenol every day during teething to help with teething pain & discomfort? Baby's weight is 18 lbs.
1 years: A 1 year old baby can switch off of formula and start whole cow milk. Formula is somewhat more nutritious but is much more expensive. A baby who is a picky eater and eats little solid food, or has almost no variety in his choice of solid foods, will probably not get enough iron and vitamins from his diet.

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?
Safe if not allergic: Cow milk products like yogurt are ok for infants.

My wife spoon feeds milk to our 15 months baby during night when he is asleep. Is it safe? Also she feeds him every 4 hours be its day or night, safe?
Potentially harmful: Potential harms are development of dental caries with night feeds and obesity from overfeeding. A neurotypical child that age can both finger-feed himself & use a spoon, spilling little. Not allowing him to do so hampers development of independent self-help skills. First you & your wife together need to hear what his pede has to say. Try to state the problem without shame or blame. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Absolutely not if...: You mean cow's milk. If however, you mean breast milk or formula then this is different. It is probably more than the baby's stomach could hold and he is likely to spit up. Most babies at 1 month drink about four oz every 3 hours. No cow's milk until after 12 months of age. ...Read more
