If it is not causing any difficulty or extra strain, you may lift. It would vary from person to person. Feeding or not feeding is not an issue.

Breast feeding only up to four months this is most important. Rest general care. Burping after feeding is also very important.

Common symptoms are running nose, sneezing or stuffy nose along with coughing. High grade fever and difficulty in breathing are two important warning signs which should make you reach doctors early.

The sheet anchor in management of diarrhoea is ORS to treat and prevent dehydration Zinc supplementation And continued feeding. There is no scientific evidence of sporlac regarding its usefulness in management of diarrhoea. Best wishes.

My baby boy is around 4 and half months old. He refuses to take milk from right breast suddenly. He fusses when I put him in my right breast. I am worried whether I ll end up with low milk supply. Please advise.

Nothing like that. Just empty whole breast at a time. Then only go for other. Apply olive oil gently to the nipples and areola. Do not worry. Watch some nursing videos in youtube. God bless u.
