Common Questions and Answers about Nutrition needs for infants


470885 tn?1326329037 s one of his favorite foods (he is just 9 months now). I was recently at a nutrition and feeding clinic for babies and the nutritionist (she specializes in infant/baby/child nutrition) had no problem with it at all. I have tried the minigos which were fine, but usually just give him the same type I am eating. No problem at all, and as I said, it's probably his favorite food now. BTW..
Avatar n tn There is a higher risk of developing feeding aversion if the infant has been ill for a long time or has not been fed through the mouth for a long time. There are many medical or surgical conditions where feeding through the mouth needs to be avoided for awhile, but improve subsequently so that the infant can feed through the mouth later. Some infants develop feeding aversion because they have a condition that makes it difficult to feed.
Avatar f tn WIC is a program that helps pregnant mothers & their babies with getting nutritional food that they need. You go to your appointments & they help you with questions regarding nutrition, breastfeeding & eating healthy. They give vouchers for juices, dairy products, eggs, fruits & veggies, whole grains & cereals. You buy only what the voucher says. Their goal us to have you start eating healthy so that you pass those habits onto your children.

Avatar f tn How many months can infants start eating baby food. My son almost 2 months in 2 more weeks ?
Avatar f tn oatmeal for breakfast, whole wheat breads, oatmeal cookies, bran muffins, whole-wheat pasta, and brown rice. Serve fruit and vegetables in any form, raw or cooked. Salads are great if she will eat it. The most important aspect to increased fiber is increasing your fluid intake. Fiber is great for increased bowel movements; however, it needs fluids to get through the colon. Suggest you limit rice, bananas, and fresh apples.
Avatar f tn Whether or not this helps you lose weight is dependent on your individual digestive system and nutritional needs, what else you're eating through the day, how much exercise you're getting, etc. Now, most almond milk products are very high in sugar, so you might want to check that unless you're making your own, and some people don't do well on dairy products like whey, but assuming none of this is a big problem that's a pretty healthful shake for most people.
Avatar f tn Can we just discuss the pros and cons for daycare for infants as early as 6 weeks? Im still uncertain of daycare for my newborn.
136689 tn?1419580447 not to start a debate, but the info provided by nyett is inaccurate, according the the american academy of pediatrics solids can be introduced between 4 and 6 months, but milk or formula should be the primary source of nutrition. (and for those who debate 4 vs 6 months, the aap acknowledges a discrepancy in its policies. many of its statements say 4 to 6 months, BUT the committee that created the breastfeeding policies stated after 6 months.
Avatar n tn His weight is on the 5th percentile and his height is on the 25th percentile for his age. Since he drinks milk suggest making him milkshakes (milk, fruit, and ice cream blended) in place of milk at all meals for additional calories and protein. You stated he likes cheese, than add cheese to pasta, potatoes, or rice. Some tips for additional calories: If he likes pasta, then add meat or cheese sauces to the pasta instead of plain tomato sauce or plain pasta.
301354 tn?1211810520 All this while its always emphasized to continue breast feeding as long as possible(breast milk contains a huge percentage of all the vital nutrition required per day and so if you have missed any of the nutrition through any of your formula foods/cooked foods it can always be compensated in breast milk) It is true that many foods like dairy products etc can cause allergies but it does not happen in all children. its better to start those product(at least the ones like milk..

Avatar f tn 8. For infants over 1 month old only on breast milk or formula, add fruit juices 1 oz./month of age per day. Pear or apple juice are OK at any age. (Reason: treating a symptom) 9. For infants over 4 months old, also add baby foods with high fiber content twice a day (peas, beans, apricots, prunes, peaches, pears, plums). 10. Diet for Children Over 1 Year Old: 11. Increase fruit juice (apple, pear, cherry, grape, prune) (note: citrus fruit juices are not helpful). 12.
Avatar f tn Do not take zofran its been recalled for causing heart problems for infants! Best thing is small portions nothing spicy and still try to get in those high in nutrition snacks.
793908 tn?1294705109 Thank you so much Sandra, for this post. It will be helpful to anyone who has a pet that needs surgery, yet because of risks (old age, weakness, etc) are putting it off. Hopefully, it wouldn't be too difficult to find a vet who used this gas, if needed. I've downloaded this info. in case I need it in the future. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the clarification. Tell you mom to stay away from fad diets and gimmick ads on diabetes. They just don't work. If it sounds too good to be true it's a scam, and hoo-boy there lots of them on the Internet and magazines. What does work is proper nutrition, daily [3-4 times a week] exercise like you're late for a departing plane, and maintaining proper weight. She just needs to work on the latter two. I wish her good health.
Avatar f tn I don't think that the amount of formula a growing child can ingest in a day would meet the nutritional requirements necessary for growth, but aside from the nutrition stand-point, it's important for development to learn how to properly chew and swallow solid foods, drink from a cup rather than suckle a bottle, etc. There can be issues later on down the road if these behaviours aren't learned at appropriate times.
Avatar f tn most of them dont unless you already have a child and you have to look for a job and file for child support.. they also pay for daycare when the baby is born...
Avatar f tn It is common for extremely premature infants such as your grandson to have feeding intolerance even at 2 weeks of life. Depending upon the individual baby, feeding can often seem to advance fitfully with many setbacks. This is a reflection of the immature development of the premature intestinal tract, which can take time to achieve full function.
304653 tn?1217001302 she really likes for me to sing...... oh I cant carry a tune for nothing, and hate to sing, but do it for her. sigh shes two months today.
Avatar n tn The physician who saw her (during her first siezure) asked for an EEG and Brain scan to be done. The EEG revealed Siezure Activity while the Brain Scan was normal. He refered us to Dr AV Srinivasan, a Renowned Neuro Physician in Chennai. Dr AVS Confirmed that this was a minor siezure and all would be well and prescribed KEPRA 250mg twice a day. This was on 12th Jan 09. The first dose was given to her on 12th Jan around 11 PM and the following morning my wife had lost her memory.
