Ashley Poston Mrs. French 4/29/2016 English 3 Breastfeeding and Bottle Feeding Bottle feeding and Breastfeeding is a decision that all mothers make. Bottle feeding is a formula that is mixed with water and a powder cereal that a baby drinks. Breastfeeding is actually using the milk from ones breasts in order to feed the
A lot of these problems seen in formula feed babies are due to the fact that the particular composition of the formula doesn’t suit their digestive system. Breast milk consists of the optimum proportions of fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. It is extremely digestible for a new-born baby because the milk is naturally refined to perfectly suit the baby’s digestive system. The milk also contains growth factors such as, epidermal growth factor (EGR) and insulin-like growth factor. The epidermal growth factor works by helping to prepare the lining of the gut to absorb the nutrients from the milk consumed. Insulin-like growth factor is believed to be one of the primary factors regulating early growth and development. Breast milk also contains essential fatty acids that are not present in most formula milk products. The two essential fatty acids present in breast milk are docosahexaenoic acid and arachidonis acid. Both of these play a vital role in optimal development of the central nervous system, intellectual and visual development in babies. Furthermore, one of the most prominent advantages associated with breast feeding over formula feeding babies is that, breast milk naturally changes composition to correspond to the stage of development of the infant. For example, colostrum is the name given to the first milk produced post-delivery. It has an abundance of white cells and antibodies, it also contains a
Before taking Child Development, I hadn’t heard about Infant Colic. After learning a little bit about it in class, I decided to do some research of my own on it. An infant can be born healthy and well-fed, but can “cry for several hours a day, several days a week” due to them having Colic. There are some theories as to what causes Colic. Some of the causes may be “gas, growing digestive system, stomach pains caused by hormones and babies becoming overstimulated and oversensitive to light and noise.” Your baby could have an “infection, an irregular heartbeat, stomach problems, or even increased eye pressure” (WebMD).
When you think of feeding your baby, you have two options: breast milk or formula. I’m sure when you think of breastfeeding, you think it’s hard and painful, but in
Assignment 1: Gastrointestinal Tract: Disorders of Motility Jamie is a 3-month-old female who presents with her mother for evaluation of “throwing up.” Mom reports that Jamie has been throwing up pretty much all the time since she was born. Jamie does not seem to be sick. In fact, she drinks her formula vigorously and often acts hungry. Jamie has normal soft brown bowel movements every day and, overall, seems like a happy and contented baby. She smiles readily and does not cry often. Other than the fact that she often throws up after drinking a bottle, she seems to be a very healthy, happy infant. A more precise history suggests that Jamie does not exactly throw up—she does not heave or act unwell—but rather it just seems that almost every time she drinks a bottle she regurgitates a milky substance. Mom thought that she might be allergic to her formula and switched her to a hypoallergenic formula. It didn’t appear to help at all, and now Mom is very concerned.
Constipation After C Section If you went without food during a long labor, you could go a day or two without bowel movement because there isn't anything in your intestines, and if you had a c-section, it can take three to four days for your bowels to begin functioning normally again.
Change your baby’s diaper every 3 hours. Keep your baby’s skin dry and avoid the skin to make contact with urine and stool.
Using laxatives. Have a consistent place for your child to go to the bathroom. Tell your child that their body makes “pee” and “poop” and that it belongs to them. Tell them their poop wants to be in the toilet and it is their job to help the poop come out.
Not drinking enough water Similar to juices, water should not be offered to infants younger than 6 months old.
First time mothers worry about the best way to feed their baby. Frequently, they rely on the advice of their friends or mother. There are those that are strong advocates for breast feeding, while others fully support giving the new infant baby formula. Today, a lot of young moms state that breast feeding is out of the question for them. Therefore, selecting the right baby formula boils down to more than just a personal choice. It is important to take time to consider the baby's health and reaction to different methods.
Utilizing the toilet to pee or take a dump is practically incomprehensible for child. In any case, you can make it a propensity for your infant with the goal that they will do the right thing. In this manner, you need to practice them to utilize the toilet with a

There are many misconceptions today about feeding formula to babies and it being equal to breastfeeding. Breast milk is complex and species-specific; it targets growth and development of infants and provides disease protection. Both breast milk and formulas contain similar nutrients, but formulas are not an exact copy of breast
