You need to burp the baby properly after every feeding. If you donot burp the gas will accumulate in the stomach and child will have pain, and it will cry. So burp the baby properly

Hello
Thanks for the concern.
As you have said he cries SOMETIMES fine not always.So he is a small kid crying is common.If he is crying continuosly for long period then be more concerned and can consult a pediatrcian . other wise no worry.
You can have any food of choice and a rich balanced diet as you are a lactating mother.your food intake will not cause any gas in baby.
after every feed see that baby gets a burp so that there wont be problem with digestion.
take the baby on your shoulders and slowly massage/gentle tap on her back for few mins this will help the baby in burping.
Take care

Good day I have a colic baby. She is two and a half months old and her biggest problem is winds. Most can be expelled via burping however she often has winds/gas in her intestines which causes her great pain and discomfort. Would milk of magnesiun or any other remedy for indigestion help?

Last year I suddenly began lactating out of both breasts. After many tests, it was decided that it may have been due to a medication. I am 33 and have an 11 yr old, there is no chance I am pregnant. I have always had very light periods. But recently I have been having heavy periods and often every two weeks. I noticed that I am producing colostrum again as well. In 2000, I had a cyst rupture in my left breast and was told I d have to monitor it for cancer. I m not sure what to do but all this scares me.

I have been using implanon for 2 years. I have weighed 110lbs for the past 4 years except when I have been pregnant. Recently I have gained 10-15 lbs my breasts have become enlarged tender and sore, I ve also been extremely tired as well as increased appetite. Tonight I discovered something new I felt a pain in my right breast (the same pain like when I was lactating after my last baby) when I squeezed my nipple a white milky discharge came out. Is it possible I could be pregnant?

Hi Doc, I am 39 years old lady. A month ago I was biten by my husband very badly on my left breast light secretion. There was pain for 2 days now 6 - 7 days back I was feeling uncomfortable so I squeezed my breast to see there was a drop of pus secretion from the same left side. And I also wanted my right breast to see while sqeezing it had a drop of milk secretion. Yesterday I underwent an ultra sound scan of my breasts so the diagnosis was mildly dilated lactiferous duct in right breast.
