Better You can ask your doctor. But there are montessories, playschools, pre-nurseries which are giving seductives for the crying kids...You can ask with them also.

hi gauri..

Firstly, how are u and ur babies doing. Are u back to work?

Well, abt medicines for sleep. I am really not sure if u shuld go ahead with it. Yes a lot of parents do that so they can have some peace. Infact, i was even aprrehensive abt giving colic aid to my daughter, who is 2 now, as that causes drowsiness. Infact , my ped simply put it, want a good nites sleep..give it to ur child.. very sacastically. Though i longed for some sleep in the first 8-10 months of Anushas life i realised that i wanted a healthy child and not just a lil sleep. Today she is 2 and knock on wood, Sleeps at 9:30 up at 08:00 and sleeps thru the night.
SO i dont think u really need it, all u need is patience.Think about it as an investment towards ur childs future and health. After , i believe, all we can give our children is health : physical, emotional and mental health.

Don' t use it. Don' t even buy it. My son is almost 2. And I can tell you that I have not had ONE NIGHT' S proper sleep in the last 2 years. First, he would wake up for feeds, now he still gets disturbed because of gas or because he feels hot / cold.

But, I' d rather that he is conscious enough to wake me up if he is in pain or uncomfortable, rather than sedating him so I can get a good night' s sleep.

I know it' s tough not getting proper rest, while caring for children and doing work during the day time. But, hang in there. You' ll be proud of the mother you' ve been. Don' t get influenced by your friend.

NO MEDICINE SHOULD BE GIVEN REGULARLY TO INFANTS AND TODDLERS, LET ALONE SEDATIVES. YOUR FRIEND IS SETTING HER CHILD UP FOR LIFE-ALTERING ILLNESSES AND PROBLEMS. Friends of mine sedate their infants on long flights. I don' t even do that.

Even the appetite boosting multi-vitamin drops that the doc prescribes has to be discontinued after a month, so HOW CAN ANYONE GIVE SEDATIVES TO A BABY ???

Bottle feeding 7 month old
Dear Ramesh Jee, you should not worry if baby rejects bottle. In fact it is good practice to feed with spoon as inspite of maximum care it is not possible to clean bottles properly and this leads to infection. You should be happy that your baby drinks through spoon. You should carry on with infant formula till one year and may consult your doctros on providing weaning food... - Geeta [View Message]
Bottle Feeding
Did you ended up solving this issue? My 7 month old daughter is still not feeding from bottle. We give her with spoon and she has 60ml everyday. She also breastfeeds at regular intervals. We are happy with her eating routine, however just a bit concerned about this issue of rejecting bottle. We tried changing to a different bottle, that did not work either.... - Ramesh [View Message]
Bottle Feeding for 7 month old
My 7 month old daughter is still not feeding from bottle. We give her with spoon and she has 60-70ml everyday. She also breastfeeds at regular intervals.

Dear Arishma

It is good that you contact pediatrician.
But i want to know are you not feeding yourself?. I think that you should feed yourself & than give her bottle milk.

because when your baby will get your personal feed than only be satisfied.

if i am wrong than forget me. But it is true on my part.

Don' t take this seriously. today' s kids are smart & fast. They do what they like it. If still you want him to have Breasts Milk than give it in a bottle. Temperature should be normal to Hot & cold, so i advise to take out your breasts milk and keep bottle in No Direct Sunlight Place.
