I need a lactation tea where do I get it in Lagos I gave low milk supply
First of all mum, you have to calm down and be very patient. Your lactation depends on your state of mind and nutritional status. Ensure you feed on balanced meals especially fluids and breast feed on demand. You should also know that the more your baby sucks the more your brain signals for more production of breastmilk.
My child weighing 4.7kg at birth and 7kg at 6months, is it OK? He is on EBF and just completed.
AT BIRTH.....the BIRTH WEIGHT normally ranges from 2.5kg to 4.0kg Any weight below 2.5 is LOW BIRTH WEIGHT Any weight above 4.0kg is LARGE FOR AGE BIRTH WEIGHT or MACROSOMIC or BIG baby After birth, Babies FIRST LOSE WEIGHT in the first 10 days.....before regaining their birth weight by the 14 day...... So it is not unusual or babies to lose weight first....Don't panic.....This is as a result of loosing fluids, inadequate feeds at the beginning and so on....but as the feeding become established they regain their birth weight at 2 weeks Babies gain weight thereafter usually about 30g per day for term babies; 20g per day for preterm babies That is roughly about 1kg per month for term babies and 600g per month for preterm babies
