Q:

I had fever 3 days back so have been on antibiotics since 2 days. Since then whenever I feed my lo he seem to get hungry again immediately. I also think that he is getting colicky as he is passing a lot of gas. I confirmed with my gynaecologist she said I can continue to feed him even if I'm on medicines. Should I put him on top feed till the time I'm on medicines?

Hi Nikita. No pl do not give any top feed as long as ur feeding well. Don’t worry as ur doctor has confirmed there is no harm. Keep feeding.

For colic ensure u hold ur baby upright for fifteen to twenty mins post every feed. Also apply hing on his navel and massage very gently.

Hey nikita just be sure u burp baby after every feed and give baby some tummy time on ur own tummy or chest to release gas. I m sharing some articles with u and tagging some new moms as well.
