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.

Exclusive breastfeeding and keeping baby warm.... Avoidance of smoke and people with cough and catarrh are what to do... No need for medications. If child should develop breathing difficulties kindly take to see a Paediatrician
which milk can you prescribe for a baby of 6 months? The milk is meant to be added to her pap.
Ma'am, any age appropriate milk will be fine. From NAN , Cerelac, Aptamil etc
Pls mums and doc in the house, is't possible to conceive while breast milk is still coming out from one's breast,
Your best chance of conceiving while breastfeeding is to have regular, unprotected sex. Breastfeeding stimulates a hormone called prolactin, sometimes called the milk hormone. High levels of prolactin stop you from ovulating.

You're right. Put a flannel on your arm for baby to rest the head while you're breastfeeding. It's the heat that comes out of your baby's body while breastfeeding that causes the heat. Apply ytacan cream (from chemist) and any Dustin powder you have on your palm. Mix it well and rub it on the affected area.

For men, the normal range is usually is 40 to 54 per cent. For women, it's from 37 to 47 per cent. Increasing the intake of iron-rich foods (eggs, spinach, artichokes, beans, lean meats, and seafood) and foods rich in cofactors (such as vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin C) important for maintaining normal haemoglobin levels. Such foods include fish, vegetables, nuts, cereals, peas, and citrus fruits. I will advise you to talk to your doctor about it to recommend a drug for you since you're breatfeeding

keep baby away from triggers such as smoke, cold, etc. Keep baby warm and continue exclusive breastfeeding. See a paediatrician if there is difficulty in breathing.

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.
Please moms, Is good to keep breastfeeding while pregnant.
Breast feeding ur baby is safe as long as you are able to keep up with the caloric requirement/demand of the new pregnancy and breastfeeding.......try and also ensure your baby is established on complementary feeds. If you have challenges eating enough for the two.....if you are able to cope, it is completely safe
My son is two weeks old and keeps bringing out breastmilk after breastfeeding with persistent hiccups. What can I do, please?

Baby has reflux or more properly called Gastro-oesophageal reflux. It basically means food tend to return from the stomach back to the gut....which is the opposite of what is right way. There are some measures that can help like keeping baby upright for longer up to 30 mins after feeding and burping. However, in serious cases these measures may not work so you have to see your paediatrician for more....like we can thicken the feeds, use some medications and in extreme cases, few may need surgery (extreme being the key words). most babies do well with general measures like keeping them upright and not laying them flat shortly after feeds.....only few need the extra measures....for most babies s they get bigger and mature, reflux reduces as the sphincter or gate between the stomach and the oesophagus get stronger to prevent the retrograde flow of food/milk.

I will worry about MALNUTRITION or Micronutrient deficiency first!! But if your baby is otherwise well-nourished, it may be due to the products you are using on the baby's hair
