Suggestions for breastfeeding while lying down. Place your baby on his or her back in the middle of a large bed. Lie on your side, next to your baby with your head on a pillow (make sure the pillow is not near your baby's head). Some mothers can let their baby latch on by themselves if they are good at attaching.

Bad breath or "Halitosis" in children can occur due to several reasons like poor oral hygiene, mouth breathing, tooth decay, gum disease, infections in the mouth, bacteria on the tongue, dry mouth, tonsil stones, foreign objects in the nose and some medical conditions. Start with improving her oral hygiene by ensuring you brush her teeth for her twice a day and making sure you brush her tongue as well. Take her to see a dentist to exclude oral infections, decay, gum disease etc. If it's still persistent you may need to see a paediatrician as well to exclude other causes.

Skip a feeding. See what happens if you offer a bottle or cup of milk instead of nursing. You can substitute pumped breast milk, formula, or whole cow's milk (if your child is at least a year old). Reducing feedings one at a time over a period of weeks gives your child time to adjust.

Just continue breastfeeding as long as you're up to it. Just ensure you are healthy. Eat well and take your routine antenatal supplements. Also please ensure you have established complementary feeding with the child.

Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended by WHO for the first 6 months of life. If you however chose to supplement with formula,ATP does not recommend or endorse any particular brand. Your choice of formula will depend on your pocket and your baby's acceptability.

Medical Doctor

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).

Hello ma'am, you can continue breastfeeding with complementary feeding. The noise in the stomach may be due to the passage of gas in the stomach. Best wishes.
