Question: my baby is 3 months running...she feels asleep while drinking milk...later if I lay her down she vl wake... everyone says she is thin...wat I shd do
Answer: hello dear all babies sleep when they feed. you should take healthy and good diet.
follow a balanced diet, which is a combination of healthy foods. Good milk production will help to gain weight of ur baby.
A balanced diet includes:
Starchy foods, such as rice, bread, potato (aloo), wholewheat rotis, oats (jaee), semolina (suji) and pasta. Choose wholegrain or multi-grain varieties of cereal-based starchy foods for added nutrients and fibre.
Some dairy produce, such as a glass of milk, curd (dahi).
Some protein, such as lentils, pulses, eggs, fish and lean meat.
Plenty of fruit and vegetables are good for feeding mother.
For Iron take anaar, spinach, apple, banana, leafy veggie. include pulses, sprouts, dry fruits,
If you are none vegetarian take lean red meat, fish and poultry. Eggs are also a good source of iron.
Eat at least three daily servings of calcium-rich foods such as milk and other dairy products, fish, almonds, or calcium-fortified foods like cereals, juices, soy and rice beverages, and breads.
For vitamin D sun helps your body produce vitamin D. Good sources are oily fish also.
Vitamin C helps your body to absorb iron better. Citrus fruits, amla, amrood and papaya are a good source of vitamin C.
Vitamin A finds in Carrots , eggs, sweet potato (shakarkandi), dark leafy greens, pumpkin (kaddu), red capsicum (laal shimla mirch), peas (matar), tomato (tamatar) and mango (aam) are rich in vitamin A.
You can also have a handful of nuts as a light snack.
If you must eat the laddoos or panjiri you can reduce the calorie count by eating smaller portions.
Question: My baby is 3 1/2 months old. I'm breast feeding her. She is not drinking milk as before. How do I know if she getting enough milk.?
Answer: Hi dear, we all have this doubt that if baby's tummy full or not and we sometime try to either force baby to take more or stop before the tummy full.
here are few signs I have listed as per my experience with babies:
Closing lips. Just as a hungry baby suckles readily, a full baby zips his lips, as if to say, "No more, thanks."
Turning his head away. A more forceful version of closing his lips is to move his entire head away from the food source. If your baby turns away from your breast or a bottle, you shouldn't force him to eat.
Decreasing or stopping sucking. Some full babies will stay latched on to the nipple but not suck any more—at which point, it's time to gently end the session.
Spitting out the nipple or falling asleep when full. After about 15 to 20 minutes of feeding, a full baby will often act drowsy and may even fall asleep.
Showing increasing interest in surroundings rather than eating. At around 4 months old many babies begin to get distracted during feedings, as their awareness of the world around them grows. A hungry baby will put this curiosity on hold long enough to feel sated. When he begins looking around more distractedly, it's a sign he's had plenty.
