Pacifier use during naps or nighttime can prevent sudden infant death syndrome. Doctors aren't sure how it works, but if you give your baby a pacifier while she's asleep, you might lower her risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) by more than half. Satisfy the suck reflex. Babies have a natural need to suck. If you're nursing your baby, wait until he's a month old to give him a pacifier, to make sure breastfeeding is well established. Some studies show that a pacifier at sleep times seems to have a protective effect against SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

You can introduce home made food to her. Your husband can be of help. You should sleep in a different room as if you traveled while your hubby should attend to her at night by giving her food. Try this for some days and see if it works. Even if she cries, don't come out. Discuss this with your husband. I will suggest you try it during the weekend because your hubby may not sleep that night. Na sacrifice

As a first step in dealing with your child's sucking habits, ignore them! Most often, they will stop on their own. Harsh words, teasing, or punishment may upset your child and is not an effective way to get rid of habits. Instead, try the following: Praise and reward your child when she does not suck her thumb or use the pacifier. Star charts, daily rewards, and gentle reminders, especially during the day, are also very helpful. If your child uses sucking to relieve boredom, keep her hands busy or distract her with things she finds fun. If you see changes in the roof of your child's mouth (palate) or in the way the teeth are lining up, talk with your paediatrician or pediatric dentist. There are devices that can be put in the mouth that make it uncomfortable to suck on a finger or thumb. No matter what method you try, be sure to explain it to your child. If it makes your child afraid or tense, stop it at once. The good news is that most children stop their sucking habits before they get very far in school. This is because of peer pressure. While your child might still use sucking as a way of going to sleep or calming down when upset, this is usually done in private and is not harmful. Putting too much pressure on your child to stop may cause more harm than good. Be assured your child will eventually stop the habit on her own. Pacifiers and Thumb Sucking As a first step in dealing with your child's sucking habits, ignore them, because most often they will stop on their own. Here are some other tips to get a child to stop sucking their thumb or using a pacifier

There is nothing wrong with your baby's weight. Children Double their birth weights at 5 -6 months and Triple their birth weights at 1 year. 3.5kg multiply by 2 will give us 7kg.

Breast feeding ur baby is safe as long as you are able to keep up with the caloric requirement/demand of the new pregnancy and breastfeeding.......try and also ensure your baby is established on complementary feeds If you have challenges eating enough for the two.....if you are able to cope, it is completely safe."
