Thanks for the site you suggested,however,your 28yrs experience is required here.

Make your submission and also let the house know in clear terms why you think I am an impostor,just to convince all you are not typing from Yaba Left.

In one of my posts I stated that this forum doesnt replace the hospital but a place where where mothers can get first hand information.So take your advice home as large percentage of mothers here are educated.

I finnaly found that Nido one plus hellixmanager was talking about. It is foriegn and quite scarce here. A can goes for 1600 or 1800 bucks. I asked a doctor friend of mine and he said since kid of 1yr old has started supplementing his milk with other foods its okay to give that other Nido. He said to suppliment with multi vitamin drops or syrups daily. I don tire for all these factory produced stuff. Wish I had a cow I would give my 1yr old well dilluted fresh cow milk. And cooked with it too.

Enjoy baby and happy 2013.

Abeg, any other parent in the house who can tell if its okay to give cod liver oil to my 18 mos old?

Hello mums

Baby girl is a month old now. How time flies. She is growing well and has gained weight every one comments on her cheeks but she got that from her dad's side.

She Is having gas and sometimes feels uncomfortable passing gas. I burp her well before laying her down on her back. She is still only breast milk. Last night she was really fussy due to the gas. Abeg, is there any of our naija food that I should avoid?

I have also tried gripe water and gas drops. They give relief for a little time only.

50-60ml of ur bossom milk is too little, which means ur milk supply is small. i wil jux suggest u eat good meal and try to bossom feed her directly frm the source cox dat alone wil enhance ur milk production.
r u stressed or depressed? cos its also one of the reasons for low or little supply of ur bossom milk. sma contain high lactose n dats y ur baby struggle to pooop it also make babies gas alot. nan 1 is a good milk but why not try cow & gate milk n see if it wil go down well wit ur baby. feeding 10x in a day both bossom milk n formular is okay, how many mls do u give in a single feeding and how many hours do u wait to feed her again.
if u ans all dese questions den we can tek it frm there to knw the solution.

tks for d reply. I feed her on demand. I give 4spoons to 125ml per meal. I try not to bottle feed her yesterday till mid day if she will agree to be bossom fed but still she bluntly refused and I had to extract it and give to her in bottle and she took it. The problem is not my Tip cos d DR said its okey. By today @ the hospital she sucked directly from the breast for a lonG while and some hours later I tried to bossom feed her again she refused bluntly.

when u said 4 spoons of milk to 125ml water, r u talking of the spoon inside the formular container?
Sumtyms patience is all we need wit our lo's. So pls be patient whyl u apply all methods of feeding.

Helloo moms, lil one has been running high temp for a few days now. Took her to the doctor and she is beed treated for malaria . Her temp wouldn't come down and she was refusing to eat but only drink. So here is a trick my sister used: she bought sprite(7 up will work too) put some in a cup and added like 1/4 teaspoon to it and gave her(make sure it tastes like coconut water let the sugar surpass the salt a little). It worked like a charm. She felt GOOD. It worked faster than the regular ORT out there. But I don't know if a baby at 6 or 8 mos can take a little of it. But I think a 9mo to 1yr can take it but not a full bottle at once o give a little and give water and regular ORT if baby would accept from time to time through out the day.

Had to come back. Doctors in the house is there any danger from doing this?

Meal time is getting annoying and frustrating as my LO seems to be a picky eater. He is 9months and not looking healthy. Are they mothers here that would advice the use of force @ feeding.

Happy New Year everyone!

I have been very busy with preparation for this Year PANCOF (20th -26th January 2013) in Enugu.

Wish you all a productive year.

imurboss: Helloo mummies,pls what food can i introduce now to my 6mths old baby oo,i'm tired!can i give her golden morn now,any suggestion? Thanks.

Have you tried any Infant cereals?If not,try start with Rice based and later with wheat or maize based (when introducing wheat for the first time watch out if there are no allergic reaction).Make it a bit watery if your baby has been exclusively breasttfed for the first 6months.Varieties are Friso,Cerelac....

You said you are tired?like you have tried a whole lot?share your experience,Goldenmorn in NO NO as advised by Julesbloom.

sugar 001: Meal time is getting annoying and frustrating as my LO seems to be a picky eater. He is 9months and not looking healthy. Are they mothers here that would advice the use of force @ feeding.

No No,you need patience.Do you know temperature of the food might even make a baby reject food?funny?Babies can't talk but reacts.Do you also know that the kind of plate and spoon can make a baby look forward to meal time?funny too? Kindly follow the advice given by Julesboom.

On a second thought,is it a case of low appetite or being picky?These are 2 different things.
Please provide ample information to get more information.
Cheers!

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and you all are doing a great job. I have definitely learnt a lot.

I have a few questions of my own. First of all, I am a first time mum.

I have a 4 week old baby and I am having issues with diaper rash. I have used one or two creams but no difference. I have also just bought sudocream, my sis inlaw suggests that I should also air my LO's butt even after using sudocream and then subsequently used vaseline. Please are there any other suggestions?

My girl gases a lot, I am wondering if it's from something I ate, someone told me to discontinue milk, I am wondering what I can eat to replace that nutrient. Please I am very very open to suggestions.

Thank you.

Hi mummies
This first time mum here is a bit worried
My son is 11weeks+, he's stopped takin breastmilk as he used to, tho he's healthy and always playing. Few days back, I introduced him to COW n GATE 0-6mnths
I literally force it down his throat
Breastmilk, he won't take
Baby milk too, he will use his tongue to push it out
I hav given him vitaminC and Beco
Still same
I am kinda worried
Re: NEW BORN BABIES! Are U A New Mum? Then Lets Discuss Babies Here!!!!! by Nobody: 8:48am On Jan 19, 2013
Hello diamindlove, please check in his mouth to see if he hasnt got an infection. Does he have a temp & is irritable? He may have a sore throat.

Just to be on the safe side, pls take him to a doctor so that he is checked over. It will also put your mind at rest.
Re: NEW BORN BABIES! Are U A New Mum? Then Lets Discuss Babies Here!!!!! by diamondlove: 9:46am On Jan 19, 2013
