Live in Nanny Four Things to Remember When Feeding Baby

Live in Nanny major four points to remember when feeding baby. Their milk intake is a necessary part of growing up! Let us stick to these guides which will help your babies have a healthy body.


On Demand Feeding
Unlike adults, babies can’t verbally tell you about their appetite condition. However, there are ways on how we can tell that our child is hungry. A hungry infant cue you by crying, making sucking noises, or putting his or her hand on his mouth. This way of feeding him is classified as on demand feeding.


How Much Milk
A younger baby has a small stomach and we need to always keep track of his milk intake. A newborn baby, for example, needs to be fed every 2 to 3 hours. Formula-feeding of milk for the baby usually amount to 2-3 ounces or 60-90 millimetres in every feeding. In breastfeeding, on the other hand, we must nurse our babies for 10-15 minutes.


Ensure Your Baby is Well-feed
There are times baby can’t give you a cue if or she is hungry. When they are having a long sleep, there are times we must wake baby up just to feed them. Wake them every few hours to make sure they get enough to eat. Monitor if they are having enough milk. Satisfied babies usually produce six wet diapers and several stools per day. They are gaining weight regularly and sleep well if they are eating healthily enough. If there any signs that the baby is not interested in sucking or eating, we must consider calling our doctors and pediatricians.
burping baby

Never Forget to Burp your Babies
Little ones can get fussy when they swallow air while drinking milk. Prevent this by burping baby often, after drinking 2-3 ounces of drinking milk. For mom who breastfeeds, test how much milk the baby has taken by feeling the breast before and after feeding the baby. The breasts feel less full after the baby has drunk milk.


If the infant has a gastroesophageal reflux, tends to be gassy, or seems fussy during feeding, try burping the baby every ounce during bottle-feeding or every 5 minutes during breastfeeding.
