5 Infant Feeding Issues Solved
Nutrition directly impacts your baby's growth and development, so it's natural to have concerns about whether or not he's eating a balanced diet. If you're concerned about your baby's feeding issues, we have some advice from the experts!
My baby won't nurse, or doesn't get enough when nursing.
If you’re breastfeeding your baby, you may experience difficulties getting your baby latched on properly and you may have concerns about your baby getting enough to eat. These concerns are natural and common, especially among new moms.
My baby refused a bottle.
When babies are hungry, they eat; and when they aren’t hungry, they don’t. And their appetites can increase and decrease according to growth spurts and other developmental factors. So if you’re concerned about how much your baby is, or isn’t eating, trust his appetite.
My baby isn't interested in starting solids.
Many parents associate starting solid foods with sleeping through the night. After all, exhausted moms will try anything for a good night’s sleep. But if your baby takes no interest in starting solid foods, then he or she may not be ready.
My baby doesn't like baby food.
My baby is a picky eater.
When your baby starts eating table food, he will likely begin to show some preference for particular foods. At this age, when formula or breast milk intake starts to decrease and babies rely more on table foods for nutrition, parents often get concerned that their little one isn’t eating a balanced diet.
Nursing moms need to eat! A well-balanced diet filled with foods you like is best, but certain foods—no matter how much you love 'em—may not agree with Baby. If Baby's fussy, spits up a lot, or has colic, rash, or congestion, check these common culprits.view gallery
