My son is now, he always cry after giving feed. His stomach looks bloated. Some of my neighbours told it could be indigestions and to give gripe water. can i give gripe water to my son. Will he stop crying. He also passes lot of gas. Iam not giving him anything except my milk. Iam seeing that even i donot take any thing which will cause indigestion
This is a common problem faced by many infants.
First,let me set the record straight.
FOR THE FIRST SIX MONTHS EVERY NEWBORN MUST GET EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDING
Gripe water is not helpful or even needed for any child. in fact it is harmful as the gut of a newborn cannot handle anything other than breast milk.
Your child does not need any medications.
continue exclusive breast feeding. the cry shall go away soon.
"papa edichindi, woodwards gripe water pattamani valla ammato cheppu,chinnappudu neeku ade patedanni" this was a famous advertisement in local language in our state. This means whenever a baby cries she should be fed with gripe water and I used to feed you when you were young. Shows that gripe water traditional and older medicine for crying of baby. After viewing this ad gripe water has become a household medicine for all babies. I still do not understand if it correct or not

Hi. I am suffering from absolute low breast milk supply. My baby is 6 weeks old and I just about rely on formula. I did have a breast reduction back in 2008. My oldest was bor in 2005 and was only able to breast feed her partially for 3 months due to low supply. I was recently tried what seemed like just about everything possible. Fenugreek, goats rue, more milk plus, reglan, quinoa, malta goya. Im in desperate need to find a way to make my supply boost up, even if its only a ounce or two.. as this is my last baby ill EVER have. Any suggestions?
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.
My 8 month old baby over the last two days has had her tongue turn black, starting in the back and moving forward. She does not breast feed, has not recently taken medications. She seems to be in no pain and the tongue feels the same temp as her body.
