Hi mama, please hold on till baby is at least 6 months and start with the single ones before going for multi. Because they can be allergic to certain food components, so you need to test each food components for allergies before trying the multi grain. In the mean time, please still continue with breastmilk and/or formula. All the best

Be rest assured that it’s a phase and he’ll outgrow it. Children that age do not need appetite boosters. You’d have to find alternatives to get him to eat, try singing, dancing, clowning, etc..

This can be very difficult. Most issues related to a baby not sleeping are caused by temporary things like illness, teething, developmental milestones or changes in routine — so the occasional sleep snafu likely isn't anything to worry about.

Try to talk to your doctor is this persist so the underlying cause can be investigated
Baby's healthIs it wise to give my baby his remaining pap please
Depends on how long. Ideally because babies are easily susceptible to bacteria infections, it’s not ideal to give them leftovers. Just make a fresh one and to avoid wastage, make what your baby can finish or finish your baby’s leftovers yourself.

Dr Aina Johnson

Paediatrician

A small number of new mums have difficulty producing enough breast milk due to medical reasons, which include:

Excessive blood loss (more than 500 ml) during the birth or retained fragments of the placenta can delay your milk coming in (which usually happens around three days after the birth).

A history of polycystic ovarian syndrome, diabetes, thyroid or other hormonal disorders. Mums with these conditions sometimes experience a low milk supply. The rare medical condition mammary hypoplasia, in which there isn’t enough milk-producing glandular tissue within the breast.

Previous breast surgeries or breast trauma – although many mums who have had surgery go on to breastfeed successfully. If any of these conditions applies to you, see a lactation consultant or breastfeeding specialist.
