Once a baby is delivered, there are new and important matters to address, such as breastfeeding, newborn screening tests, and sleeping safety. There is a special website dedicated to breastfeeding that can help you.

What can I do if my baby was born preterm?

If your baby was born before 37 weeks of pregnancy (before 37 weeks your baby will be in the late preterm stage), and you choose to try to keep your baby’s weight below 500g, your baby may be in the late preterm stage. If your baby has been born early, but you still wish to keep your baby on a lower weight, you can: give your baby a small amount of formula or breast milk. Breastfeeding works well for preterm babies who receive this extra breast milk for a few days. However, you should not give your preterm baby formula or breast milk until your baby has had his last milk and can handle it.

Preterm and premature babies who cannot breastfeed can also use a bottle.

It is important to let your baby get used to using the bottle. It is also important to encourage him to use the bottle regularly. Your baby may develop a habit of putting the bottle in the toilet with the lid on or to the breast. By showing your baby that the bottle is not his to play with or give to other people, he will learn to treat it as such. You may also want to look at buying an old bottle that has a lid. This will allow you to change the bottle regularly and have the best of both worlds.

What if I think I am not giving my baby enough milk? Some babies will still be unable to breastfeed at four to six months. In such cases, you need to offer to let your baby be bottle fed until he is six months old. It may take time, but by doing this you are ensuring that he receives enough milk and protects his fragile digestive system. If you still don’t believe you are giving your baby enough milk, don’t hesitate to consult a breastfeeding specialist or ask for a referral.

A member of the team of nurses working with young children at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Melbourne, Australia, has spent the past 20 years investigating the causes of infant obesity and recommending a variety of treatments. Her main advice is to have your baby always on the breast at all times and not to substitute other feeding methods for formula.

Pregnant mothers who have breastfed infants who developed obesity should be on an anti-inflammatory diet during their pregnancy. This has been shown to reduce the chances of developing metabolic syndrome and the subsequent risk of developing obesity. Always consult with your doctor in order to determine what is the best for you and your baby. Visit the North Raleigh Pediatrics.com to get further information.
