New born feeding once abd not peeing. No milk production for mother. Concerned - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
I am fine. I have a question regarding my newly born baby
She just completed two days today. She peed only once in the morning today .. after that she is passing solids i.e. stool etc. but not peeing. Is it ok or something to concern about
Are you feeding her every 2 hours?
Her mother is not having enough milk so we are providing her lactogen powder (for pre-term babies she born after 36 week 2 days)
she had taken it 3 times since mornig
also a little bit of mother's milk as she is not getting enough
Was the lactogen prescribed or did you start it on your own?
doctor told that if the baby is crying and you are not getting enough milk then you can give it to baby.
Se there are a few things we need to clarify here
First, if you dont feed your child, the production of breast milk will decrease
If there is no breast milk, you cant feed your child
So it becomes a vicious cycle
Second thing, it takes a few days for the mother's milk production to increase
This is sufficient for the baby
Your child is not passing urine because she is not getting enough milk
What she is producing sometimes kind of transparent one or few drops ..
the powder is actually Pre-Nan (nestle) for pre term babies and babies having weight less than 2.5 kg.
You need to feed your child first Chary
There are no two ways about it
That powder is not a substitute
Breast milk has a lot of benefits
she is feeding it whenever possible but if still she is crying then only we are giving it to baby.
She needs to feed her child every 2 hours
It will take 2-3 days for the milk production to increase
This needs to be done even at night
so I would suggest you feed the child properly
If she does not pass urine till night again, please see a physician
For premature children, it is even more necessary to breast feed them
she needs to hold her child properly and feed her
ok we will do it for sure. but it is normal for peeing only once .. or we should contact doctor. one more question, can we use pump to suck out milk and then provide it to baby
No , it is not normal
You need to start feeding her every 2 hours
If she does not pass urine till tonight
Please see a physician
You can use a pump but it would be best to feed her
Direct breast feeding helps the mother and child bond
and also helps both of them remain healthy
thanks for the advice
Please put an alarm for every 2 hours and do this
ok thanks doctor
Is there anything else I can help you with?
that's it doctor thanks.
thanks for consulting me
hello doctor one more query
this is Dr. XXXXXXX
it was regarding not peeing by the baby
Please go ahead
if she doesn't urinate by tonight (she did once in the morning), should I go to doctor in the night itself or can I wait till tomorrow
Please go tonight itself
But please feed the baby first frequently
is there anything else I can help you with?
that's it thanks.
Thanks for consulting me
