Hello

YOU SHOULD FEED YOUR BABY AT LEAST FOR ONE AND A HALF YEAR.it will be good to feed the baby till two years.

Till six months feed him every two hours.then along with breast feeding start with milk, fruit juice, clear veg. soup for few days then to semiliquid for 1-2 monthsthen to semi solid soft diet.for a month.

Take care

I saw the doctor today. I have an itchy nipple and pain the breast, when I checked the area of the pain, I thought I felt a thickening in the breast. I felt further and thought I just had lumpy breasts /cysts. My doctor was unable to say for certain if the thickening was there, she thought it was thicker than the other breast, but didn t want to palpitate more because my breasts were extremely sore. I am 50, sort of trying to become postmenopausal. I have had itchy nipples in the past, and itchy and painful lymph glands in my arms and simply attributed it to hormones. my first cousin has triple negative breast cancer, and my mother died of breast cancer at 76. she was first diagnosed when she was 71. I had my first child at age 32. My periods started when I was 12/13 (?). I didn t breast feed much, because I didn t produce enough milk. My BMI is extremely high and I have a very fatty liver and a history of endometrioses. I am also have symptoms in my uterus, and have a larger than average uterus. I just attributed this all to my endometrioses and hormones. I am 53. I have a diagnostic mammo and ultrasound on tues. Is there any chance this isn t breast cancer?

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?

hi, my baby always seems whingey and has now going of all his milk feeds what do you think it could be? he also fell backwards yesterday and worried about whiplash, he slept more than usual last night and woke up not taking his feeds, but he went of them before all this happened. He has also started weaning, maybe he has no need for milk?

my son is 7 weeks old. He has this white pimple on top of his nose for about a week, what could it be, I hope it s not something serious. I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
