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
Is switching baby formula brands dangerous my baby is spitting up a lot so dr said to switch to enfamil ar from similac advance baby is 1 month old?
Not specificly: The switch is not much of a change.You go from one companies bovine formula to another companies bovine formula thickened with rice solids. Thickening can sometimes reduce spit up.You could simply add a half teaspoon of rice cereal/btl & do the same with the similac. Similac has a "sensitive" that changes to a soy protein source & removes the lactose. Either product are good nutrition & may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I feed my 16 days old baby entirely on NESTLÉ pro1 as breast milk is too less. Is this formula good or shall I use any other formula?
Unsure how much milk to give 14 mth old. Currently 1 breast+3 cows milk/day. Fussy&light eater when it comes to solids.Small but healthy child. Thx!
Go easy on milk: Your child should have a total of 20-24 ounces of milk. Your child isn't eating as much as she used to, because she is not growing as much. Let her graze when she eats, rather than formal meals. Also giving too much milk will bloat her abdomen and she won't have enough room for solids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it okay to feed ready- feed similac straight from refrigerator for a middle of night feed to 7.5 month old?
Yes: The practice of warming bottles goes back to the 50's or earlier when most people made their formula at home & boiled it to make it more digestible. It is not necessary. Most kids over 10 pounds do not need to eat in the night & if you cut the volume back slowly & don't feed at bedtime, the kid may resettle if they wake at night rather than cry for the feed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it ok to supplement formula till my breast milk starts coming back in stronger? It nearly dried over night. Not enough for baby. Or is formula gonna constipate him?
My baby is 11 months..When can she start to drink normal milk?I mean whole milk, no more formulas...Thanks
At 12 months, when : You can wean to a doubled-handled, open-mouthed cup. Limit milk & milk products to 16-21 oz./day to avoid constipation & iron-deficiency anemia. If you give juice (not recommended) limit it to 4-6 oz./day. Since the same muscles used for eating & drinking are used for talking, use a "commuter cup" if you feel you need a lidded one. Sippy cups keep the tongue forward in an immature sucking position. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Weaning: If your baby is nursing with no problem, then this should work. Add a very small amount of breast milk to teh gentlease. Wait a few days and add more.Repeat this process.

My 1 year old baby is formula-fed. Is it better to start giving her cow's milk instead? Which one is better for her: formula or cow milk?
Cows milk: You can begin feeding your one year old whole milk, but make sure it isnt two percent or skim milk. Your baby needs the cholesterol for nervous system development. Formula is more nutritious and it has added vitamins and other elements added to it to help babys development. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My toddler 19 month got eczema. I'm thinking may be its cow formula. So thinking to change her formula. Which formula is better soy or goat formula?
Either, but...: 1. Eczema is rarely caused by a food allergy. Nothing wrong with trying, but it probably won't help. 2. Children over 1 year old do not need "formula". You can buy regular goat milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. 3. Any of these are fine nutritionally as long as they are only a minor part of the diet (less that 16 ounces a day). He/she should be getting mostly regular table food. ...Read more
