It could be the rice cereal, or possibly traces of soy or gluten that caused it. It depends on the place it was manufactured as well as the contents in the cereal itself. Better to go to the doctor.
My daughter just turned 8 month and my hair started dropping..at a rate that I think I will become botak soon. Any cure for hair loss after pregnancy?
It is very usual to have hair loss after delivery. It will get better after some time. Just make sure to have a balanced diet and good sleep
Like what Wendy said, it's nothing permanent for you to worry about as it's just your body adjusting its hormones back. My hair was dropping at a crazy rate when my son was about 4+ months. Each t

Don't worry, it's perfectly normal. You won't go bald, the hair should grow back by the time your baby turns 1. Normally, about 85 to 95 percent of the hair on your head is growing and the other 5

Hi I'm currently breastfeeding my 7 month old daughter. I want to start weaning her from the breast hopefully by time she's 12months. My problem is that I don't have enough milk to pump for her for he

You can try to build up a stash first of an extra 1-2 feeds so as to help you not feel too stressed up with your milk supply. Then feed from the spare that you have but always pump to replace. That wa

I think probably because she has started taking solids that's why the frequency of latching has decreased. What you can do is to latch her more often as supply=demand, in order to increase your breast

Babies at her age are easily distracted because nursing now means sitting there for 10 minutes doing nothing. It can be boring as compared to crawling or trying to stand or even drinking from cups.

I have been at the pump for two weeks. Every time I pump I am very nauseated. Why??
You can try to snack before you pump and after. I usually have a hot milo before I pump. I find it also increases the yield. Increase your water intake as well. It will get better. I no longer feel na

Nausea when pumping is due to the release of the oxytocin hormone which causes let down and easier digestion. Unfortunately, this is also associated with nausea. http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/

Hi, any mums who had caught stomach flu while breastfeeding? I have no appetite and can't keep any food down. Will that affect my supply if I am well hydrated? I'm drinking a lot, just not eating anyt

No don't do that! It will affect your supply of you do not drink. You must keep yourself hydrated at least.
Keep yourself hydrated. Also remember to sanitise your hands before touching or getting close to baby. Take dry stuff, bananas, toast, Porridge. Hope you get well soon!
I hope you're ok Shrutika! Your supply may be affected if you're not consuming enough calories to breastfeed but just keep latching and I believe you'll be fine. Your milk production may be slower

Yes that will definitely affect your supply. You need to try and take a lot of fluids and continue to latch to bring on the supply. btw did u go to a doc? I had stomach flu while feeding, doc gave

Believe it or not, babies understand when you say "no". I have tried this with my three boys - all biting me when they latch. A firm no, then unlatching the baby will help baby to stop biting.
When my baby bite me while nursing, i will gently unlatch and tell him/her that not bite and this will make mummy painful. Try to be consistent each time when baby bites so they can get the message: b

Why do babies bite while breastfeeding? During their teething period their guns are swollen and uncomfortable, hence they will tend to bite at anything that goes into their mouths. It is actually i

I just limited my four month old daughters pacifier time. Now she has started using her thumb. What should I do ?
Amputate. No, I'm just kidding. I think pacifier is still the lesser of two evils. Failing which, I would suggest mittens.
I don't have a child yet. But when I did this my parents got that clear nail polish that tastes gross and put it on my thumbs so I wouldn't suck them.
4mths old is still so young. it is difficult to let baby quit pacificer. for me personally i prefer pacificer than thumb. i feel thumb has more germs than pacificer. because at least i sterilised it a

There is no need to limit the period, maybe, can try this, give only she wan to sleep or teething(mean when keep crying, shouting). If there is no pacifier, and she suck her thumb, stop her, take out

That might be infant care options for young babies. Seems like they are pretty popular, so will need to check with your preferred places. Childcare seems to start at 18mo only.
There are a couple of options for you. There are pros and cons to every option so you need to figure out what works better for you. 1. Get a domestic helper to care for your child. Most mums are not
