I have tried skin to skin contact. Different launching process. I have applied honey on my breast also. Still she is not interested to my milk. One of my friends suggested me that (she told me to take my husband's help for sucking the milk) but still milk is not coming. Is baby launching and others launching are different? How can we create interest to the baby to feed my milk.

Thanks for reaching out. Please clarify whether in 24 hours she sleeps for 10 to 12 hours. That should be enough. Is she drinking milk well and active at times she is awake it is fine. You take 2 to 3 cuos of tea. That will not affect the baby's sleep. You can eat more nutricious food such as porridge or milk instead of tea.

Dear Lybrate user please be calm. Do not worry. Feed the child whenever they need milk for just 10 mins and then if need be you can feed in 1.5 hours. Frequency of feeding will produce more milk. You also have to eat well, Drink 3 to 4 glasses of milk. Eat dhal in your diet, Take vegetables and fruit. Take oats, garlic as rasam. Be calm everything will be fine.

You have to put the black aea of breast into the mouth and feed the baby. You should not give bottle feed at all, as it will create breast and bottle confusion. By constant relaxed practise he will learn to latch.

All primary vaccines except BCG and oral polio till 9 months of age are given in the thigh which is a safe place. So your nurse has done right. Nothing to worry.

My child is of 8 months old can we use soli wax or should we use olive oil for wax in his ear.
First check out if he has any wax in his ears. Small amounts of wax will not do any harm to his ears on the contrary it will protect the ears. Soliwax is a better product to use than olive oil.

Neonatal jaundice usually settles on its own after few days and we can give polio vaccination once his vital parameters are stable
