Bowel movementWhy does the stomach of my 4months baby makes sound whenever he is breastfeeding?
Can you describe this noise?. Noise is not necessarily an indication that something is wrong. The sound you may hear is like a puff of air coming from the back of the throat, or "kha, kha," the sound of the baby exhaling after a swallow. If you hear that noise, it is a reliable indicator that the baby is swallowing.

If this persist, you might consider seeing a doctor

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.

What is the treatment for oka Ori for my 2month babyDoes it make baby not to add weight
Dr Aina Johnson


Your baby does not need any treatment, at least for what you've described. Oka ori is called fontanelle. The “soft hole or space” often erroneously believed to be an abnormality is A NORMAL PART of the baby’s head. It is called ANTERIOR FONTANELLE (AF). Every baby has it. It is there to allow along with the small spaces (sutures) between the different bones of the skull to accommodate the baby’s brain growth. So it is not “OKA” or any other thing….It is a normal part of the baby’s head.

Tips to introducing complementary feeding. Is your baby 6 months old? Is your baby able to sit up properly? Have adequate neck and head control. Shows interest in your food.
