Question:What is the time of feeding 23 days old baby??? She sleeps much? Is it normal?
Answer: Hi dear, congratulations on your baby. Most newborns eat every 2 to 3 hours, or 8 to 12 times every 24 hours. Babies might only take in half ounce per feeding for the first day or two of life, but after that will usually drink 30 to 60 ml at each feeding. This amount increases to 60 to 90 ml by 2 weeks of age.
At about 2 months of age, babies usually take 120 to 150 ml per feeding every 3 to 4 hours.
And about sleeping, Give your baby plenty of opportunity to sleep and be sensitive to their sleep cues. The novelty of having a baby in the house probably hasn’t worn off yet. It’s easy to over handle small babies which, although done with the best of intentions, can cause them to become overtired. Even at this early stage, aim to place your baby into their cot when they are tired, rather than already asleep. Sometimes this will be easier than others. Most small babies go to sleep soon after feeding and their “sleep window” can be very short.
Question:I have 1week and 5 days old baby. Im doing breastfeeding. She takes long time for each feed. She is passing stool immediately after feeding. Is this normal?
Its very normal specially if the baby is on liquid the she will poop more or less liquid till the time she starts solid after 6 months.
Its normal in new born babies to pass gas and poop at the same time because they do not have control over their spinchter muscle in anus, hence theu tend to poop when they pass gas. And its good in a way because baby is relieved as he passes gas, since they are completely on milk and milk produces a lot of gas, so its better if it comes out.
It will be fine, dont worry.
Hope this helps!
Question:My baby is 42 days old ..after feed she pukes a lot..what is t reason for it..she takes both formula feed n breastfeed..
Answer: Hi. Dear
Its common that baby pukes in starting few month as it can because of reflux,
Or over feeding.
Keep baby in upright position after feeding at least foe 20 min.
Also pat babies back so that if any gas is trapped it comes out.
Dont immediately put baby on bed after feeding.
