Please note that it's normal for babies to lose some weight in the first two weeks after birth because of water loss. But they should add up before sixth week. Kindly ensure that your baby is feeding well..... Feed baby more often and breastfeed to empty one breast before offering the other one.

Most likely gastroesophageal reflux...just a jargon that says food return from the stomach to the oesophagus after feed instead of staying down. For such babies, you need to keep them upright for up to 30 minutes or more after each feed...so it stays down.....You can keep them in the car seat put in an upright position if you are too tired or busy to carry them that long...others can help too....but if it so bad and not allowing the baby to gain weight....please see your paediatricians for further management at that point.

We are advocates of exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life and if for any reason a mother is not able to give formula. Do not introduce cereals just because you have resumed work. You can actually express the breast milk and store appropriately for your baby to be fed with while your are at work.

Breast milk production is as a result of sucking - baby, spouse or pump. Some the more sucking the more breast milk produced. As it is you feed your baby on demand, so when he's not feeding, you can pump and store. It will take a few days for this to be well established. Breast milk should be stored in the freezer (last 4-6months), taken out when it wants to be used. It should thaw (defrost) itself, keep in the fridge (not fridge door). The milk must be consumed within 24hrs. When feeding, only take the quantity the baby can consume and warm in hot water (don't microwave). Never shake breastmilk rather you swirl it to mix. Warmed unfinished milk should be discarded.
