Can I give my baby Bournvita his a year old
  • Best Answer
For bournvita, you can start at one year old. But it is advisable to start from 2 years. These health drinks are not safe to be given to kids before 2 years of age, as your little one’s kidneys are not ready to take the heavy load of these foods. As babies surpass the weaning stage, their digestive system starts to accept new foods. In 2 years your breastmilk helps them grow a strong enough digestive system to take on these complex foods. As baby graduates from infant to toddler, she needs the right nutrients to grow. As per the nutritional recommendations of WHO for children, for healthy growth a baby needs a variety of proteins and micronutrients including Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Riboflavin(Vit. B2), Vitamin B12 etc. Milk along with Bournvita, Complan or Horlicks can act as a great source of these while also making milk flavourful.

Let your nipples air-dry after each feeding. To reduce pain, apply cool compresses to your nipples after breastfeeding. Gel pads can also be used on dry nipples. If your nipples are very sore, placing breast shields inside your bra to prevent contact between clothes and nipples may help.

It depends and it's very relative. Typically your next menstrual period may come on time. But atimes, it may be either be early or late but shouldn't be more than one week late . If your next period is more than 1 week late, or if it is unusually light, perform a pregnancy test. If you do not have a menstrual period after 3 weeks of taking Postinor-2, you may be pregnant.
Pls which blood tonic can 1year old take, he used to vomit astyfer even if i wait some minutes before or after food?
Just curious, who recommended Astyfer for your baby in the first place?
pls, can an 8-year-old take Astymin?
  • Best Answer
No, you are not to use blood tonic routinely. Rather ensure your child takes food rich in iron. But if you feel your baby's blood is low, kindly check the PCV first at the hospital and let the doctor work out the appropriate dose for your baby. Iron can be too much in the blood causing symptoms of iron overload.
