I am 26 year old mother with two month old daughter. I am breastfeeding my daughter. But it seems milk is not enough for my little one. So I am giving her lactogen 1 once in a day in spoon. As she is not taking bottle feeding. Whenever I try to feed in bottle, she vomits. Please tell me the reason for refusal of bottle nipple by my baby? And please suggest any other idea?

It is unhealthy to give bottle and bottle and nipple will cause a lot of health issues and only breast milk at his age is advised. If you give formulas, give only in spoon from a cup or sipper. Checking the weight gain every month is the best way to know if the milk supply is enough

Hi, I think, cypon syrup is not safe for your daughter, it is an appetite stimulant, but it works from 7 to 14 years, it is better if you show it to a pediatrician.

These symptoms are of common cold due to viral infection. Give paracetamol 125 mg 3 to 4 times in a day n promethazine 5 mg 2 times in a day for 2 days and instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day else consult pediatrician.

She is not having milk in one of her breast. What will be the best supplement to increase milk for baby feeding.

If milk is not in one breast only the duct may be blocked and it can be cleared by a gynec or surgeon.

Breastfeeding may not necessarily come naturally to us. It is a good idea to get your facts right about breastfeeding before your baby is born, and also to seek help with establishing successful breastfeeding.

BABY TEETH CARE BASICS:---Few things are as adorable as a baby's totally toothless smile. But baby teeth development doesn't take long. Before you know it, you'll be navigating your way through the world of teething, brushing baby teeth, losing baby teeth and eventually welcoming in a mouth full of permanent pearly whites. Baby teeth development actually begins before baby is born. Primary teeth are almost completely formed at birth but remain buried under the gums. These mini chompers start showing up when a baby is about six months to a year old.Unfortunately, baby tooth development and eruption is a painful process. Teething can make an infant's gums sore, causing your little one to be uncomfortable and irritable. Experts suggest that during baby tooth development, you massage your baby's gums with a clean finger or give a chilled teething ring, a cool spoon or a cold, wet washcloth to help ease the discomfort.Parents should begin brushing baby teeth as soon as the first tooth arrives. Why bother? These little munchers help baby with proper chewing and speech and hold space in the gums for permanent teeth. It's never too early to start taking good care of your baby's teeth. Here are some baby teeth care basics:----- Prevent early childhood caries, also known as baby bottle tooth decay, by making sure baby doesn't sleep with a bottle containing any sugary liquids -- even breast milk. And never give your child a pacifier that's been dipped into anything sweet.- Start brushing baby teeth as soon as the first tooth appears. Routine baby dental care should also include massaging the gums with a clean gauze pad. When all teeth have erupted, floss at least once a day to help prevent the buildup of dental plaque.- Wean your baby off thumb-sucking if he or she is still doing so by age four. Otherwise, it can cause overcrowded or crooked teeth.- Consider a combination of fluoride treatment and dental sealants, thin plastic coatings applied on baby molars to keep dental plaque from accumulating. Talk to your dentist before giving your child any fluoride dental treatment and have your child use only un-fluoridated toothpaste until two years of age.- Take your child to the dentist after the first tooth arrives or by age one. Regular dental visits combined with daily baby teeth care can help give your baby a good head start on the road to dental health.A great dentist or pediatric dentist can answer any questions you might have about baby teeth development and help provide tips for proper baby teeth care.Call/Text/What's up us @ 8285666226 fir any help.
