This tactic sort of backfired on us, but it worked. My youngest son, when he was a baby, was initially breast-fed, but then we had to stop. He hated formula. Refused to drink it. Finally, we added a little strawberry flavor to the formula. Mind you, this was our third time around. (His sisters are in college) So, we were a little more open to ...

Why don't you just microwave the water, swirl it around and make certain it's not to hot, then mix the water with the formula?

We microwave our infants formula all the time, it's all we use to heat the formula. We always swirl and double-check the temp before feeding. I disagree with the losing nutritional value statement. I don't think that warming milk to 20 degrees celcius is considered "cooking" to anyone. There is a fine line in microwaving time to go from feeding temperature ...

In at least one way, TV is harmful to an infant - every minute spent watching is a minute lost to other, better activities. I guaranty your child would rather watch and listen to you than to the TV. Try putting her in one of those bouncy-relining seats on the counter while you cook or clean, and narrate your activities. You'll be amazed how entertaining ...

Does she drink juice? When I drink juice, I often dilute it by adding an equal amount of water or more (I don't want the calories of all that juice, but I don't like the taste of our water). If she isn't used to sweet juices, she'll never miss it, and you will be adding fluids to her diet. Also, some people just don't like water. Some juices actually help ...

This happened to our second kid, though I never had to help him get it out. It is not uncommon for some kids to have hard stool when starting solid. Initially I would recommend you try to increase her water intake, as that is most often the issue. Make sure she gets water with every meal. Do not feed bananas, apples and other highly constipating foods. ...

I have allowed my little girl to watch TV on and off pretty much since she was born. This has only ever been for short periods though as I am not a big TV watcher myself. I have always interacted with her during watching TV and talked to her about what's on the screen etc. She's just coming up to 2 now and has moved up to the next class in nursery a ...

My nurse told me do not let the child watching TV before 2 years old and then limited the time for the to watching. The over-stimulation may cause attention problem for them later on. The research shows that watching TV in the early age causes child suffer from ADHD in the early school. But I find it is difficult nowadays for us not using tablet, phone and ...

Have you changed perfumes/soaps/other scented personal products? Soap leaves a residue. My wife accidentally washed her breasts with soap and our son had a similar reaction. She washed with water a few more times and it seemed to resolve the problem. We found that this la leche league book helped immensely in diagnosing those sorts of problems: "The ...

The key here isn't television. That is an artifact of the environment. The issue is parents who neglect their children for hours on end which incidentally creates a situation where the kids may watch TV for extended periods. It doesn't matter if the parents watch TV all day themselves also, that's just another form of disregarding your children. Watching ...

My first thought reading this was teething. Also, it is a way for the baby to "self soothe" which is the beginning of a vital skill that they will need to learn for later in life. Hope that makes sense. When my little one was a few months old I read that if you do not offer a pacifier (dummy) or allow thumb/finger sucking it would be "cruel" (these are ...
