How to reduce baby weight in the wombGood morning all. Please can Lipton tea mixed with a little milk reduce the baby weight in the womb?
  • Best Answer
No there's no evidence you will reduce baby weight with Lipton. Yes, you can add Lipton to your tea. But you have to be very careful you don't abuse it. Lipton contains caffeine. Even though most caffeinated teas are considered safe to drink during pregnancy, as long as they do not cause a woman's total daily caffeine intake to exceed 300 mg. Women who are particularly sensitive to caffeine may benefit from aiming for a maximum of 100 mg of caffeine per day. I will strongly advise you to avoid too much of it

Sleep when baby sleeps and be awake when he's awake... Follow his pattern first then he will adapt to yours after a few weeks. That is what using my Mummy's word is called being an "Abiyamo".... Being a mother is synonymous with regular night or if you like baby vigils. Welcome to motherhood

NESTLE RECOMMENDS GOLDEN MORN FROM AGE 3 YEARS
My baby is 8months old but hasn't brought out any teeth hope nothing is wrong, please?
Your baby is teething when his or her first set of teeth, called primary teeth break through the gums. When does teething typically start? Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth.

WALKING SITTING AND POTTY TRAINING ADVICE NEEDED !!!!
  • Best Answer
I normally recommend that potty training should start at 2 years of age, when the child is ready. So please your child is still young. In some climes, potty training a child less than two years old is termed child abuse. Please don't let people's claim of potty training as early as 6 months deceive you.You have not done anything wrong. Wait till he/she is older. All the best.

  • Best Answer
A breastfeeding mom needs to eat well nourishing balanced diet. She should only avoid foods and spices that make her baby fussy or show allergic reactions. So if plantain make your baby fussy or show allergic reaction, then avoid it but if it does not you can go ahead and have it. The only thing she needs to clearly avoid is taking unprescribed medication.

  • Best Answer
COUGH SYRUP IS NOT THE TREATMENT FOR COUGH.... Kindly note that most cough are due to viral infections and will resolve on their own....There is no need to give antibiotics....Keep warm, exclusive breastfeeding and avoid any one adult or child with colds. If your child is breathing fast or having fever or breathing with difficulty, it could be pneumonia, kindly see a doctor immediately.... We Paediatricians are usually not comfortable to cough syrup being given first to infants.. I.e below 1 year..... This is because it sedates and makes it difficult for the children to breath well especially a child that has pneumonia with increased work of breathing...
Hey, doc what causes myasthenia gravis in kids?
  • Best Answer
The bodies produce antibodies that are supposed to protect against foreign body but this time they actually attack the body own tissues. In Myasthenia Gravis, this occurs at the level where the nerves and muscles communicate called Neuromuscular junction. This is what causes the weakness of some of the muscles observed in Myasthenia Gravis. Severity depends on how bad it is. There are some other mild variations of the same disease with the cause but this is the simplest explanation in a layman term I can give.
