Can warm water be given to a newborn baby since the breast milk is not flowing well
it is wrong to give water to a newborn. She advises that if the mother is not lactating yet, breast milk substitute should be given (i.e formula aged 0 - 6 months). Also ensure baby is still put to breast frequently to kick start lactation as breast milk is the best food for any baby in the first 6 months of life (no water, agbo, e.t.c)

I suspect you aren't latching him well. Always ensure that your nipple is directly into your baby's mouth.

Hello ma'am,Yes, you can.
I'm the mother of a sick child. She was a low birth weight baby. She was clocked till 6 this months.She is refusing to breastfeed and did not take anything. All the time she cries, having cough sore throat. She's not gaining weigh...
I will say don't just assume colic. There are other reasons why a baby cries excessively. Is the baby having enough feeds? Any other symptom? Is the baby consolable? It is best to get the baby reviewed by a doctor."
Treating of infection while breastfeedingI wish to ask if it is safe to use canesten pessaries/ insertion while breastfeeding. I notice that I am having virginal itching....
Canesten is an Antifungal. Pessaries are safe to use during pregnancy and are also safe for the mother to use if the baby is being breastfed. There have been no recorded harmful effects on the unborn in animal or human studies when creams or pessaries have been used. But I will suggest you ask your doctor because your situation might be unique. Take care.

No cause for alarm dear. Newborn grunting is usually related to digestion. Your baby is simply getting used to the mother's milk or formula. They may have gas or pressure in their stomach that makes them feel uncomfortable, and they haven't learned yet how to move things through.

Greenish coloured stools, also so-called "starvation stools," could be an indicator that a child is not being fed well; that he is starving. This is so as, suboptimal feeding makes small volumes of food materials to be present in the intestine. Most of these would be absorbed by the body, and what would be present at the distal end of the intestine would just be bile, which would then run through, like water in a pipe, without enough time for intestinal flora to convert Bilirubin to Stercobilin. It would then come out as greenish coloured watery stools.
Please how is cabbage used on breast when weaning a baby? Should it be put in the fridge before using it or it should be used dire...
Before you use cabbage leaves for engorged breasts, you want them to be cold. So, place a head of cabbage in the refrigerator. You can use green or red cabbage, but red cabbage is more likely to leave stains or discoloration behind on your nursing bra and breastfeeding clothing. Once the head of cabbage is chilled, remove it from the refrigerator. Peel off the outer layer of leaves, and throw them away. Then, pull off two of the inner leaves and place the head of cabbage back into the refrigerator, so it will be ready the next time you need it. Next, place the clean, cold cabbage leaves on your breasts. Wrap each leaf around each breast, but leave your nipples exposed. By keeping the cabbage off of your nipples, the skin around your nipples will stay dry and intact Hold the cabbage leaves in place on your breasts the same way you would hold a cold compress. Or, you can wear a bra to keep the leaves in place for you. If you're worried about leaking, put a clean, dry breast pad over your nipple on top of the cabbage leaf to soak up the breast milk. You can leave the cabbage leaves on your breasts for approximately 20 minutes or until they become warm. Then, remove them from your breasts.
My 10months baby won't eat anything except breast milk ?Please help, my baby has lost so much weight because she won't let me feed her. At 6 months she loved pap but will never take milk...
I can feel your frustration ma. Normally, Breastmilk or formula is an important part of your child's diet until his first birthday (and breastfeeding after this still has benefits). But from six months, milk alone can't provide everything he needs. In particular, he needs to eat some solid foods that contain iron, to make sure he's getting enough. In general, time, persistence and patience are the keys to encouraging your little one to eat. Try to keep mealtimes as relaxed as possible, keep offering foods, and show your baby how much you enjoy eating yourself. Eventually, he should follow your lead and start tucking in with enthusiasm.

It is as a result of maternal estrogen levels at work in the newborn. It will resolve as the hormonal levels of the newborn normalizes. Do not try to press or massage it because it could lead to the development of breast abscess or mastitis. You can also see a paediatrician to allay your worry.

It is not advisable you take lime. Please note that breastfeeding mums should not diet or take slimming products. You can always wait until you are done breastfeeding.
